The SHRM members will ask lawmakers to enact a permanent provision enabling tax-free employer-provided education assistance, which allows employees to use part of their income that is not taxed to pay for classes and, supporters say, creates a more skilled workforce.
The provision, which was first implemented in 1978 and has been extended nine times, is set to expire at the end of the year without congressional action, according to SHRM.
SHRM will also urge lawmakers to stop a National Labor Relations Board rule that would shorten the required time between when a union election is announced and when it is held.
