On Monday, Jan. 11, SHRM and the SHRM Virginia State Council (VASHRM) (joined by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, the Virginia Assisted Living Association, the Virginia Retail Merchants Association, and the Virginia Restaurant Lodging and Travel Association) filed an amicus brief in the Virginia Supreme Court case Johnston v.
