On a daily basis, SHRM tracks agency rulemakings
and submits comments on regulatory issues that affect the human resource (HR) profession. Once an agency solicits comment on a proposed rule, SHRM gathers input from the relevant special expertise panels and SHRM research in order to craft a written response to the proposed rule.
When judicial courts consider issues relevant to the HR community, SHRM analyzes whether to intervene in individual cases by filing an amicus brief. SHRM may submit an amicus brief on behalf of SHRM alone or may join with other like-minded organizations. SHRM's briefs focus on informing the court of how the issue before them will affect both the workplace and the HR profession. SHRM typically focuses its legal efforts on the U.S. Supreme Court and federal circuit courts, but also considers intervening at the federal district court or state court levels on cases of particular significance to HR.
