This year's presidential campaigns have featured discussions on firing Big Bird, the unemployment situation in this country, the 47% and failed campaign promises. But have you thought about where the candidates stand on issues related to human resources and employment law?

In this episode, we talk with Patricia Trainor about where President Obama and Governor Romney stand on human resources and employment law issues. We talk about the pending "right to know" employee classification regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act, affirmative action, and the National Labor Relations Board's reach when it comes to social media policies and employee handbooks. We also talk about what the election results could mean for employers and human resources professionals.
