Last week President Trump outlined an ambitious agenda during his first State of the Union address. Meanwhile, lawmakers are wrapping-up their respective party retreats to set forth their legislative agendas.  Now the focus is on priority issues for the remainder of the 115th Congress, including many that will impact the workplace.

Most folks only get out to one and if lucky two conferences a year. Of course, the SHRM Annual each June is the granddaddy of them all and one that folks look forward to attending a year in advance. However, it’s not the only conference on the schedule and you have some great options to choose from, especially if you have an interest in one particular area of HR.

While President Donald Trump called for paid parental leave in his State of the Union address, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is supporting enactment of the Workflex in the 21st Century Act.

SHRM strongly encourages the White House, Congress and employers to support H.R. 4219. It addresses the needs of businesses and employees by providing predictability for employers and generous paid leave and workflex options for the workforce.

In his remarks, the President will address his public policy agenda, which will likely include key HR issues surrounding immigration reform and health care, among others. Future decisions made on these initiatives will impact you and your workplace and may affect the way you prepare for what’s ahead.

What's your HR kryptonite?  Is it tracking FMLA leave? Navigating the HR Bermuda triangle of ADA, FMLA and workers' comp? Figuring out who's an employee or independent contractor under the conflicting federal and state laws, regulations and guidance?  And how many times have we been in front of these issues trying to shape these important public policies before they became law?

Last month, almost 750 SHRM members joined us in Washington D.C. for SHRM’s 39th Employment Law and Legislation Conference. It was an especially exciting time to be in the nation’s capital, with volatile health care negotiations and a Supreme Court nomination underway. We could feel the energy and immediacy in every session. There is so much at stake right now, with changes coming at a pace we’ve never experienced.

I’ll be the first to admit that politics kind of intimidats me, regardless of working for a small municipality on the Aleutian Island Chain of Alaska.  There was something about Advocacy Day during SHRM’s Employment Law & Legislative Conference that intrigued me, and maybe slightly terrified me, but never one to back down from a challenge, I signed up.

As part of our coverage of the SHRM 2017 Annual Conference & Exposition, each of the official bloggers is conducting Q&As with session speakers.  As I scanned the list of speakers, one that caught my attention right away was Jeffrey Tobias Halter, president of strategic consulting company YWomen. His session is titled, “Why Women – The Leadership Imperative to Advanc
