On April 26, the House Education and the Workforce Committee approved a bill from Representative Martha Roby (R-AL), H.R. 1180, the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2017, by a party-line vote of 22-16. The SHRM-supported legislation would amend the Fair Labor Standards Act to provide private-sector employers the ability to offer their employees the choice of paid time off or cash wages for overtime hours worked.
During her opening remarks, committee chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) cited SHRM research data showing that 85 percent of employees say that workplace flexibility is important when considering a new job. Moreover, Representative Bradley Byrne (R-AL), chairman of the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections, stated, "This bill is about empowering workers and families with the flexibility they need to balance work and their personal responsibilities."
As we went to press, this bill was scheduled for a vote on the House floor later this afternoon. Be sure to check SHRM's Workplace News and Trends on the homepage in the morning about the vote. In the meantime, please read HERE for more information regarding SHRM's support for the legislation.
