U.S. Labor Department solicitor Kate O’Scannlain last year spoke at a closed-door U.S. Chamber of Commerce meeting in Washington. The Labor Department, responding to a public-records request from The National Law Journal, this week provided a copy of O’Scannlain’s prepared remarks, which are posted below.
O’Scannlain spoke about a range of issues, including immigration enforcement, joint-employer investigations, overtime regulations, association health plans, workplace safety and contractor compliance. O’Scannlain had been a Kirkland & Ellis partner since 2011 before joining the Trump administration.
“We at the Department of Labor recognize and appreciate your important contributions to the overall economic well-being of the nation,” O’Scannlain said in her remarks. “We are all focused on one common goal: getting U.S. citizens back to work.”
Here are O’Scannlain’s prepared remarks, as provided by the Labor Department:
