Making Sense of the Legislative Process: How the Sausages Get Made!
Presented by: Andrea Chatfield
of Cook, Little, Rosenblatt & Manson, PLLC
There is an old saying: laws are like sausages –
it is better not to see them being made.
However, HR professionals live with many employment laws on a daily basis. Understanding how the legislative process works will allow HR professionals to effectively advocate for legal change in the workplace, provide their voice when new employment laws are proposed, and determine how to manage compliance with such laws in light of their organization’s goals. In an easy-to-follow format, this presentation will provide attendees with the following:
• A detailed understanding of the legislative process on both the Federal and State levels;
• Guidance on how to follow the development of a legislative bill; and
• Guidance on how to engage with lawmakers.
Andrea G. Chatfield is an attorney at Cook, Little, Rosenblatt & Manson, p.l.l.c. in Manchester, NH where she provides advice and guidance to employers on risk management issues in the workplace. She represents employers of all types and sizes before administrative agencies in discrimination, whistleblower, unemployment, and wage disputes. She conducts in-house trainings for employers, and serves as an outside investigator for employers who need to respond to highly sensitive internal complaints of discrimination and harassment.
Andrea frequently is a public speaker on employment law topics, and recently authored the New Hampshire employment law chapter for the Navigator series of state laws offered by Lexology (an innovative, web-based service) and the Association of Corporate Counsel.
Andrea is admitted to practice in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and she has earned an “AV” rating from Martindale Hubbell. Andrea is listed in Chambers USA as one of the leading employment lawyers in New Hampshire and in Best Lawyers of America for employment law - management. In addition, she is the Government Relations & Legislative Chair for the HR State Council of New Hampshire, and she serves on the Board of Directors of the Manchester Area Human Resources Association and on the Personnel Advisory Committee for the Manchester Community Health Center.

Although this presentation is geared toward our veterans, it really is useful for HR professionals for our entire employee populations!
