Last month, hundreds of HR professionals from across the nation met with their state lawmakers to advance HR concerns and interests. Legislative advocacy days took place in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas - to name a few.

Some of the issues discussed by SHRM members in face-to-face meetings with their elected officials included paid sick leave (Ohio), workplace weapons legislation (Texas), immigration reform and health care legislation (Rhode Island), paid family medical leave and employee health insurance (New York), and rising health care costs for employers and mandated rest/meal times for workers (Pennsylvania).
