  • Review of employment and labor related legislation pursued and enacted during the 2019-2020 state legislative session.


  • Preview of employment and labor related legislative proposals potentially to be considered during the 2021-2022 state legislative session.


  • Highlights of dynamics at the federal level with new personnel – including at the U.S. Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board – and a more business-hostile agenda from the incoming administration.


  • Thoughts and suggestions for how HR professionals, and the employer community in general, can help influence public policy.
