Healthcare is another area where a Trump administration plans policy changes that could have dramatic effects on employers. Brian Marcotte, president and CEO of the National Business Group on Health in Washington, says his organization looks forward to the Trump administration "strengthening employer-sponsored health coverage for the millions of Americans who rely on it" and eliminating the "Cadillac tax" provision of the Affordable Care Act. 

Other initiatives that could have had substantial effects on employers under Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton now are less likely, notes Steve Wojcik, vice president for public policy at the NBGH. For example: "It is unlikely that Congress will have paid sick leave and other labor policy issues on its agenda."
