Senate Resolution Designates October 2017 as "National Employee Ownership Month"

On October 19, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) introduced Senate Resolution 295, which formally designates October 2017 as "Employee Ownership Month." Resolution 295 demonstrates continuing bipartisan support for employee ownership in Congress, with three Republicans, six Democrats, and two Independents comprising its eleven cosponsors.

The resolution specifically recognizes that employee-owned companies:
  • Give workers a voice in corporate governance, which helps the companies' long-term well-being;
  • Outperform non-employee-owned companies and show greater resiliency during challenging economic conditions; and
  • Face lower staff turnover and provide greater job security.
As a result, employee-owners "feel better prepared to cover the expenses of life and retire with a greater sense of financial security."

Resolution 295 was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

One of the best features about our website articles and blog entries is that they are timely—you get up-to-date information on the law as it exists at the time. The downside is that the law changes, but our older entries don't. That means we can't guarantee you are getting the most current law when reading through past entries.

Please don't take these articles and blog entries and rely on them as legal advice. Give us a call instead, for specific and pointed advice for your particular situation. Note that contacting us does not create an attorney-client relationship, unless you are accepted as a client of the firm.
