Labor, Immigration and Employee Benefits

The Labor, Immigration & Employee Benefits Division facilitates the use of two policy committees (Labor Relations Committee and Employee Benefits Committee) composed of Chamber members that formulate and analyze the Chamber's policy in the areas of labor law, immigration, pension and health care. The Division regularly interacts with Congressional staff, numerous Federal agencies and many national coalitions (some of which are chaired by the Chamber) to help define and shape national labor, immigration and employee benefit policy.
