House Hearing Shines Spotlight on Workflex Bill, Growing Coalition of Support

Washington, D.C., July 24, 2018 — Employers for Flexibility (E4F) applauded a House subcommittee today for shining a light on Rep. Mimi Walters’s Workflex in the 21st Century Act (H.R. 4219) – an innovative, national approach to delivering more flexibility and paid leave for employees and more certainty for employers.

“The legislation we are discussing today would bring workplace rules up to standards needed in the present-day workplace,” testified Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., President and CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), an E4F founding member. “We need a nationwide solution — not another mandate — that works for everyone.

“That’s why SHRM strongly supports H.R. 4219,” continued Taylor. “It works for both employers and employees. Employers gain predictability and flexibility through a federal framework, and employees gain guaranteed paid leave and workflex options.”
