Learn about the burning legislative, regulatory and judicial issues that will impact the HR profession. The Society for Human Resource Management presents live video streaming of the following session:

In November 2012, American voters will head to the polls to decide who will serve in the White House for the next four years and which party or parties will control the House and Senate. In the midst of election-year politics and the continuing difficult economic situation, many issues of importance to the HR profession are at the forefront of consideration of the 112th Congress and the federal agencies. Key issues of focus include proposals to create a new mandatory employment verification process, efforts to overhaul the recognition of unions in the collective bargaining process as well as proposals to amend current affirmative action legal requirements for employers in regards to veterans, the disabled and others.
