State of the HR Union 2008

BLR (Business & Legal Reports) recently published a great article on the current proposed changes in legislation and regulations that will affect HR professionals. The article focuses on SHRM’s analysis of these key issues that were addressed at SHRM’s 2008 Employment Law and Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. this past week.

According to Michael P. Aitken, Director of Government Affairs for SHRM, the issues to watch include:

  • Employment eligibility verification
  • FMLA military leave
  • Proposed FMLA regulations
  • ADA restoration
    (“The Outlook For New Employment Legislation”, March 12, 2008, BLR)

SHRM outlines the pros and cons of each bill, including Secure America through Verification and Employment (SAVE), the New Employee Verification Act of 2008, changes to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and redefining the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Read the full article – The Outlook for New Employment Legislation in 2008 – and feel free to post comments on your thoughts to these key issues here or in the HR Forum. ERC also hosts the Litigation Prevention Workshop on April 2 with topics including ADA, FMLA, discrimination & harassment and more.

  3. I read this just a few minutes ago and thought I’d pass it along despite the fact that it’s not really that topical. What exactly is your greatest phobia?
