Over 460 California members gathered in Sacramento on April 19-21 to attend the California Society for Human Resource Management (CalSHRM) 2017 California State Legislative & HR Conference. Setting new attendance records once again, the conference hosted attendees who were actively seeking guidance on complying with the multitude of federal, state and local laws impacting the workplace, as well as updates on legislative developments in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.
During the afternoon of April 19, 229 HR professionals from across California conducted in-person meetings at the State Capitol with their respective lawmakers and/or their staffs to advocate on bills pending in the Legislature. The HR professionals voiced their support for a bill that would establish a voluntary preference for the hiring of veterans (A.B. 353), and their opposition to two bills, one that would require employers to offer additional hours of work to existing qualified nonexempt employees before hiring additional employees (A.B. 5), and another that would impose onerous requirements on employers with regards to compliance action undertaken by federal immigration agency personnel (A.B. 450). The number of Advocacy Day attendees this year was the largest number of SHRM members ever to advocate at a state capital, breaking last year's record of 185, also set by California.
Through SHRM's user-friendly Advocacy App (available for free from any app store), California HR professionals were able to easily share their experiences with their HR colleagues through Twitter and to provide feedback on their meetings through SHRM's Policy Action Center.
