Join the SHRM and Council Government Affairs Teams on Twitter for the Presidential and Vice Presidential Debates

By Chatrane Birbal Sep 23, 2016

The Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees will take center stage in the coming weeks 4 face-to-face debates. The nominees will use these opportunities to demonstrate their issue expertise and outline their public policy agenda. As we've seen from the primary debates and on the campaign trail, the topics of discussion are likely to include key HR issues such as the changes to overtime rules, paid leave, immigration reform, implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and tax reform among others, so plan to join in on the discussion with Twitter. Future decisions made on these issues will impact you and your workplace and may affect the way you prepare for what's ahead in 2017.
