Legislative Update

Welcome to DSHRM's Legislative Connection. My name is Linda Smith and I am currently serving as the DuPage SHRM chapter, legislative director. I look forward to getting to know you at one of the chapter meetings/events.


I am excited about serving in this capacity. Withover 900 pieces of legislation related to labor and employment topics under consideration in the Illinois and U.S. congressional houses, we have a lot to talk about and a great many issues to follow. To help  our local chapter membership stay informed, each Legislative Connectioncommunication will include the following:


  • Details related to the next scheduled DSHRM chapter meeting and networking events.
  • Links to current legislation under congressional consideration as they relate to upcoming DSHRM program topics.
  • Links to key resources that SHRM makes available at the National and State levels.


In addition to Legislative Connectioncommunications like this one, I will periodically send/post DSHRM Legislative Flash Updateson issues that may need your immediate focus and/or action.
