​ALEXANDRIA, Va – For 75 years, SHRM has pushed for advancing HR among its community of HR professionals, in the workplace, and in public policy.

By reinforcing decades of legal precedent, today’s Supreme Court ruling in Groff v. DeJoy reaffirms the careful balance necessary to protect religious freedom and enable employers to implement policies necessary to manage their workplaces.
