Meet the Speakers:

Lori Ann Lange is a partner and co-chair of Peckar & Abramson’s Government Contracting & Infrastructure Practice, leading the firm’s federal government contracting efforts.

She represents a range of government contractors, including construction contractors, major defense contractors, informational technology contractors, and service contractors.

Lauren Rayner Davis is an associate in Peckar & Abramson’s Labor and Employment Practice. She represents employers on a wide range of labor and employment issues such as labor contract administration, collective bargaining agreement negotiations, unfair labor practices, discrimination, harassment, terminations, layoffs, reasonable accommodations, investigations, application of state and federal family and medical leave acts, interpretation of wage and hour laws, defense of Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) and Directors & Officers (D&O) claims, and provides day-to-day advice on related legal issues.

Details about this executive order are available on MCAA’s website.

Note:

Questions have been raised about MCAA’s role in lobbying and litigation challenging the OSHA ETS.  MCAA is actively involved in commenting on the proposal both before and after the initial issuance of the ETS and will continue to do so as the regulatory process moves on.  Regulatory and judicial developments are much more likely to affect the course of these mandates than any potential Federal legislation – the chances of breaking a partisan political deadlock on this issue is not feasible, in the short term. MCAA is tracking all developments and providing up-to-date information on them to the membership as a whole through webinars with Peckar & Abramson and the MCAA COVID 19 website.  As to litigation, MCAA has made the judgment to conserve its resources in this respect given the overall context of the industry challenges raised by the pandemic and the Administration’s response for individual and public health and continued robust economic recovery from the pandemic.  MCAA also is tracking and working with the United Association on these issues with respect to the proliferation of both public and private sector vaccination mandates that directly affect our members’ market interests.
