As Human Resource Professionals, we are often called upon to not only follow employment laws, but interpret them and apply them to our workplaces. More than that, we are often called upon to respond to and give opinions of upcoming laws that will affect the ways that we do our jobs. We do that through letter writing campaigns, contacting our elected officials, and even attending legislative conferences in Austin and Washington, D.C.
As a basis for our profession, the various types of new and changed legislation that comes from Washington, D.C, Austin, and El Paso affect us greatly. Our 2022 Legal & Governmental Affairs Director, Janice Cahill Sherman, is constantly watching and communicating news to our membership. If you have anything you would like to share, please contact Janice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
