CalSHRM Legislative Conference to Kick Off with 240+ HR Advocates Descending on the State Capitol

By Jason Gabhart Apr 7, 2017

On April 19, over 240 HR professionals will head to the State Capitol in Sacramento and advocate on workplace public-policy issues pending before the General Assembly, including three pieces of legislation slated for a hearing in committee that day. This advocacy effort is part of CalSHRM's 2017 California State Legislative & HR Conference, which will be held in Sacramento from April 19-21. The two bills that will be heard are:

  • AB 353, a SHRM/CalSHRM-sponsored bill that would allow private California employers to establish a voluntary preference in the hiring of veterans.
  • AB 5, a bill that requires an employer with 10 or more employees to offer additional hours of work to an existing nonexempt employee before hiring an additional employee or subcontractor. SHRM and CalSHRM are opposed to AB 5.
  • AB 450, which would place burdensome requirements on HR professionals when complying with I-9 audits and other federal immigration agency worksite enforcement actions. SHRM and CalSHRM are opposed to AB 450.

The California State Legislative & HR Conference is where key business decision makers, business owners, senior-level officers, mid-level management and human resource professionals come to learn about important California and federal legislation and employment issues that either impact, or have the potential to impact, their organizations.
