We are pleased to announce the formation of the HR Policy Legal Council, which will provide expertise and legal insights into the complex policy challenges facing our members, complementing the work of our Future Workplace Policy Council, American Health Policy Institute, and Center On Executive Compensation.
Policy changes of great importance to HR Policy Association members—and the business community at large—are developing at an accelerating pace. Over the next several years, we expect this trend to continue as the Biden administration takes shape, including the emergence of Democratic majorities at the NLRB and EEOC. We also expect increased regulatory activity in terms of enforcement, rulemaking, executive orders, and the potential for the enactment of new legislation.
In light of these events, litigation is becoming an increasingly important public policy strategy for the business community and HR Policy Association in particular.
The Legal Council is composed of a select group of former government officials and leaders from prominent law firms, many of whom we have worked closely with over the years. We are excited about their inclusion in our deliberations and their assistance in achieving the goals of the FWPC.
Members of the Legal Council will participate in our Future Workplace Policy Council Fall Conference virtual discussion series, the first of which is focused on workplace safety in the age of COVID, and is scheduled for October 27, 2021 at 12:00 PM EDT. Click here for more details.
