More than 500 HR professionals expected to meet with lawmakers about E-Verify, card check, healthcare reform and other key workplace and business issues
Alexandria, Va. − The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), is expecting record-breaking attendance at this year’s
Employment Law and Legislative Conference to be held March 9-11, 2009, in Washington, D.C. at the Capital Hilton.
In this critical legislative year, more than 500 human resource professionals will converge in the nation’s capital to meet with their Members of Congress to discuss workplace and business issues affecting their profession, including card check, E-verify, paid leave, pay equity and healthcare reform.
“We expect this to be one of the most active Congresses we’ve seen in 30 years when it comes to HR issues,” said Mike Aitken, SHRM’s director of government affairs. “In fact, President Obama signed into law this morning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act.”
“SHRM and its members are on the frontlines of workplace issues hence in the unique position to help government create new policies that guide companies operating in the U.S.,” said Aitken.
Conference goers will hear from noteworthy speakers such as:
Harold Ford, Jr., former Congressman, NBC News analyst and the Chair of the National Democratic Leadership Council; and
David E. Sanger, Chief Washington Correspondent for
The New York Times.
Additional legislative and regulatory topics SHRM will cover include:
