The Near-Term Future of Human Capital Management in a 50/50 Political Landscape

Red HR/Blue HR: The Near-Term Future of Human Capital Management in a 50/50 Political Landscape

As we approach a historic election in November, most experts agree: as a nation, we are at unprecedented levels of political division in this country. Given the recent activism of the executive and judicial branches of the federal government (if not the legislative), and increased levels of state and local activity as well, we in HR mostly “hunker down” and wait for the next mandate to roll out, wondering what impacts it will have on our HCM technology platforms. From minimum wage changes to enhanced EEO reporting, from gender pay equity issues making top news headlines to the question of where the Affordable Care Act will be a year from now, HR professionals need as much information as they can garner to be ready for potential change.

In this session, we’ll explore what impact pending legislation (of both the “blue” and “red” variety), recent court cases, and a possible change in control of the Presidency and/or the Senate could have on our professional lives as HR compliance officers.

What you will learn

  • The “status quo ante:” where key employment law and related technology issues stood at the end of 2016
  • The changes made over the last three years: what’s new, what’s different, what’s gone?
  • Key areas which could be significantly impacted by a change in government party control in 2021
  • Next, we will cover the areas of compensation, minimum wage, and gender pay equity
  • Following that, we will cover immigration, work visas, and guest workers and more
  • Is it possible for HR professionals to be ready…..for ANYTHING? Here are some key steps to take in preparation!
