VA SHRM Ranks #2 in Top Giving to SHRM Foundation
Virginia SHRM is proud to announce that in 2016 VA SHRM ranked #2 of all state councils in donations to the SHRM Foundation! That's an amazing effort that placed us ahead of many councils with significantly larger territories/chapters. A big kudos goes to NOVA SHRM. They were a 2016 Top 25 Chapter in donations to the SHRM Foundation. Thank you to all who generously gave to support the SHRM Foundation. The SHRM Foundation is a values-based charity organization that champions workforce and workplace transformation and inspires HR professionals to make it happen.

Legislative Update: VA House Bill 1445 Dies in Committee
Thank you to those of you who contacted your Virginia Representative to share the impact of Virginia HB1445 on your employer. Luckily for VA employers, this bill died in committee... this time.

This bill would have restricted an employer’s right to pay wages via pre-paid pay card without first obtaining employee consent. For employers who have intentionally moved away from the use of live pay checks to the use of pay cards as an alternative to direct deposit, this bill could have considerable consequences.

A big thanks to our partners at the VA Chamber for gathering employer support to let our Representatives know how employers could be impacted by HB1445. If you happen to chat with your Representatives in the future, it still wouldn't hurt to mention how such a bill could possibly negatively impact your employer.
