Go ALC! It’s almost spring here in Washington, D.C., and as I write, we expect snow tonight. In other words, it’s time to think about ALC's Annual Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, in May!
As we continue to follow up from Language Advocacy Days 2018 last month, we continue to emphasize the need to reform contracting for language services, and to address the data collection methods of the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We will update on these issues as new developments arise, but our message is positively received and well understood on Capitol Hill.
Unfortunately, the larger political dramas in Washington, D.C., have stalled the nomination of Cheryl Stanton as head of the Wage and Hour Division, and have limited the bandwidth of our colleagues on Capitol Hill. Once Ms. Stanton is in place, we will continue our efforts to develop a clear path to compliance on employee classification under the Unemployment Act.
With Best Wishes,
