The committee develops Chamber policy and programs on a wide range of labor and employment issues, including: employment nondiscrimination, minimum wage and wage-hour, occupational safety and health, immigration, labor-management relations, union corporate/strategic campaigns, workplace privacy, work-family issues and leave mandates, and emerging international labor policy issues. The committee guides and assists the Chamber's efforts to craft sound labor and employment policies in the interest of our members and their employees. It also assists our efforts to counterbalance the efforts of other groups advocating the erosion of management rights. This committee has a number of active subcommittees. They are: Wage, Hour, and Leave; Immigration; Equal Employment Opportunity; Occupational Safety and Health; International Perspectives; and National Labor Relations Act.
