2014 SHRM STATE CONFERENCE KEYNOTE INTRODUCTION. Click to view the video:
2014 Legislative Update - The SHRM State Council has its eye on several legislative issues from the January 2014 session. As a result of a SHRM Leadership Meeting in late January, SHRM Nebraska agreed on these positions:
If you are inclined, it is important to have as many employers testify as possible. The HR community was able to impact the reference check bill last year based on live testimony. Check with your employer about testifying then show up to the appropriate hearing about 10 minutes early to sign up. You typically hae 2-5 minutes to speak. Real-life examples of problems the bills represent are great testimonies. For example, FMLA is very difficult to administer. The state act would apply to all employers and would be very costly and burdensome to small employers. Submit written positions by writing the Chair before the hearing at firstname.lastname@example.org
