On April 20th, SHRM sent a letter to Congressional leaders outlining its members’ policy priorities. SHRM President & CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr. and SHRM Head of Government Affairs, Emily M. Dickens wrote “During this public health crisis our members are leading their organizational response to COVID-19 and will continue to shepherd employers and employees through the post pandemic recovery. Therefore as Congress develops additional COVID-19 relief legislation, SHRM urges policymakers to consider the following issues which are important to our members.”
These issues include:
- Small Businesses
- Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)
- Paid Leave
- Job Share Programs
- Unemployment Insurance (UI)
