After the results from the tumultuous 2016 elections are in, everyone will have the same question: So what happens now? For employers, a new Congress and administration (regardless of which party is in power) means new initiatives affecting the workplace will be introduced, and existing laws and regulations could be revised. There's also the question of what to expect from state legislatures, as well as the future of the U.S. Supreme Court. Mike Aitken, vice president of government affairs at SHRM, will provide an insider's perspective on what the election results mean, both on a national and federal level; what employers can expect from federal and state executives and legislators over the next two years; and how HR professionals can affect change in public policy.

About the Presenter: Mike Aitkenis vice president of government affairs at SHRM. Prior to joining the Society in 2003, he served for 14 years as associate director for Governmental and External Relations at the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR).
