As the 118th Congress begins to develop legislative proposals, the Association sent a letter to lawmakers highlighting issues that are of particular importance to member companies.
Highlighted workplace issues include paid leave, behavioral health, non-compete agreements, data privacy, labor law reform and immigration, to name a few.
The Association advocated for “pragmatic solutions and forward-thinking workplace public policies to address the most important issues facing the nation’s employers and their employees.”
In the 118th Congress there are 82 new lawmakers—75 in the House of Representatives and seven in the Senate. While most lawmakers are returning veterans, at the beginning of every new Congress, the Association sends a letter to lawmakers highlighting our members’ priority issues and reintroducing HR Policy as a resource as they contemplate legislative proposals that will impact HR and the workplace.
In addition to the Association’s letter, the American Health Policy Institute sent a letter to all lawmakers elevating the employment-based health care issues that we hope to work with Congress to enact.
