As SHRM celebrates its 75th Anniversary, the organization is focused on recognizing the success of the past and acknowledging the need to drive meaningful change to stay ahead of workplace change. To make the most of this year, SHRM is calling on Congress to update three key pieces of legislation that greatly impact the future of work, workers and the workplace.
Modernize the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
SHRM proposes a balanced approach through a voluntary federal insurance market that allows employers to fund paid leave benefits by tapping into pooled resources. This will increase worker access to paid leave and minimize risk to employers.
Improve on the
Immigration and Nationality Act
SHRM supports removing barriers to recruiting, hiring, transferring and retaining top talent; the efficient use of employment-based visas; improving case processing; and boosting efficiency, transparency and fairness in workplace immigration.
Streamline the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
Given recent attention to key topics addressed in the FLSA — particularly worker classification and overtime exemptions — SHRM advocates for clear, consistent and balanced laws and regulations that benefit employers, workers and the economy.
LET’S GET TO WORK
