Government Relations

Together with our partners at the state level (WISHRM) and at the national level (SHRM), Metro Milwaukee SHRM serves as a valuable resource to legislators and regulators who are looking for a practitioner’s point of view regarding the potential impact of HR-related legislation on employers and employees, including the reasonableness of implementation and recordkeeping.

Metro Milwaukee SHRM does everything from taking a position on an issue, to providing written analysis and testimony, to participating in coalitions working to support/delete legislation. In addition, and as part of our advocacy efforts, we have developed relationships with the local media, establishing ourselves as a valuable resource on HR issues.

Metro Milwaukee SHRM’s Legislative Special Interest Group is a vital link between our members and local, state and national legislators and regulators. This has been one of the most aggressive periods on record for HR-related legislation – from health care, to union activity, to paid sick leave – there’s a lot going on.

Using programs, newsletters, the Web site, and e-blasts, the Legislative Special Interest Group keeps our members on the cutting edge regarding emerging rules and legislation. If you are interested in joining the Legislative Special Interest Group, please contact Angela Novotney or Stella Terry
