Legal and Legislative Affairs

    The Legal and Legislative Affairs committee of North Jersey-Rockland Chapter SHRM (NJ-RC SHRM) is dedicated to keeping its constituents and HR community at-large informed of legislative issues pending at federal and state levels, as well as compliance and regulatory issues related to HR and employment business in the workplace (e.g., workforce development, workplace equity, paid leave and workplace immigration).
