Hello, NFIB Member in Tennessee!
The 2017 legislative session has kicked into high gear. Committee calendars have begun to fill with bills important to your business. At this writing, NFIB is supporting a bill that would prohibit local governments from mandating employers to give employees two weeks’ notice on their schedules. This bad idea, called “predictive scheduling,” has already been adopted in two cities – Seattle and San Francisco – and is being considered in about 10 states.
We expect legislation like equal pay, paid leave and minimum wage to be presented in March, and will work diligently to make sure these well intended but harmful, job-killing mandates are defeated again.
Governor Haslam’s IMPROVE Act continues to be debated in committees. Its fate is uncertain, but NFIB is making sure you stay informed to engage on any potential harmful elements in the proposal and counter-proposals. Make your voice heard if you see any call to action!
Thank you, and enjoy the spring weather!
Tennessee State Director
