​Local and state legislators in almost every state are considering or enacting legislation that impacts thousands of employers and employees. These laws are in addition to new or proposed federal laws that also are HR-focused.

Four experts on local, state and federal legislation gathered this week at a Society for Human Resources Management press briefing during the SHRM Employment Law & Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C., to discuss some of these new laws and upcoming legislation.

Here are video highlights of that discussion:

Jonathan Segal, Pennsylvania State Council of SHRM legislative director, discussed HR-focused legislation passed or being considered in Pennsylvania and Philadelphia.


Cindy Butler, Rhode Island State Council of SHRM government affairs director, discussed some of the HR-focused legislation being considered in that state.


Lisa Horn, SHRM director of congressional affairs, discussed expanded paid leave and workplace flexibility legislation that SHRM is working on with lawmakers.


Mike Aitken, SHRM vice president of government affairs, discussed the big picture of upcoming legislation across the country and in Washington, D.C.
