HR professionals must evaluate candidates' workplace policies
With the presidential election upon us, it is important for HR professionals to evaluate the workplace policies of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton before heading to the polls.
The following is an archive of SHRM's election coverage to date. New articles will be added as the election cycle continues.
Candidate Workplace Policies:
An Overview of Clinton’s Workplace PositionsHillary Clinton has made a number of promises about workplace law during her presidential campaign. Like the electorate, policy experts are divided in their opinions on her positions.
Trump’s Ideas for Change in the WorkplaceFor HR professionals, Donald Trump's positions on issues affecting the workplace are of particular interest.
Presidential Election Is Stressing Out Workers, Hurting Productivity
The contest between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for president of the United States is stressing out workers and inciting workplace arguments that are hurting productivity, according to new findings by the American Psychological Association (APA).
Clinton vs. Trump: Equal Pay for Equal WorkEnsuring that employers provide equal pay for equal work, regardless of gender, has traditionally been a priority of the Democratic Party, while Republicans historically have pushed back on any laws that would potentially infringe on an employer's ability to reward its workforce primarily on the basis of merit with minimal government interference.
Trump vs. Clinton on Health Care: Their Differences Are ClearOf all the issues debated by the Trump and Clinton campaigns, few offer a clearer picture of the candidates' philosophical differences than health care coverage. While Hillary Clinton says her goal is to preserve and build on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Donald Trump has made clear his intention is to repeal current legislation and replace it with a system that requires less federal government support.

But the programs may rise from the dead if Hillary Clinton is elected president.
Trump Campaign Noncompete Agreement Draws CriticismAn employment agreement that Donald Trump is requiring campaign employees and volunteers to sign violates employees' rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), according to a workers' rights organization.
