Written By ESR News Blog Editor Thomas Ahearn

HR.com, the largest network of human resources (HR) professionals, has announced their “State of Legal, Compliance & Employment Law Advisory Board” for 2021, that will include Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), according to an HR.com press release.

Working closely with HR.com’s HR Research Institute (HRRI), Rosen and the 17 other newly-appointed board of industry experts and thought leaders will counsel on the most impactful topics and key areas within legal, compliance, and employment law areas of HR to positively and effectively guide primary research.

The state of the industry research will provide a detailed snapshot of how organizations are handling various responsibilities and decisions, trending best practices, how HR leaders and their teams can prepare for future challenges, and what to expect in the coming year. The research will look at all relevant factors, including:

  • Which issues are creating the most stress and uncertainty.
  • How organizations are addressing those issues.
  • What legal challenges arose during the coronavirus pandemic, and what is on the horizon in light of recent changes such as the new administration in the United States.
  • How the move to more remote work environments changed employer obligations.
  • What organizations that are good at handling these issues tend to do differently from those that do not.

The research insights and findings will be published in a major HR Research Institute report and will be further distilled into a two-page infographic. The results will also be featured at the complimentary virtual event for HR professionals, “The State of Legal, Compliance, and Employment Law 2021,” taking place on October 27, 2021.
