ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 8, 2013 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) praises the passage of the Working Families Flexibility Act today by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Today’s employees juggle many work-life responsibilities. Passage of the bill — which would provide the option of comp time for private-sector nonexempt workers — is an important step toward offering the flexibility they need.

HR professionals across the country understand the benefits of a flexible workplace for both employees and employers. They are interested in offering a comp-time program as another way to help their employees navigate their many responsibilities.

SHRM commends the leadership of Rep. Martha Roby, R-Ala., in sponsoring the measure, and it looks forward to continuing to work with Congress on this and other issues to meet the needs of today’s diverse workplace.
