Hawaii State Legislative Updates

This section of the website will be updated regularly with our Legislative Digest and Legislative Highlights articles after every major legislative deadline, as well as discussions on key issues of concern about pending legislation that could have a significant impact on employers in Hawaii.  Please check back often for updates throughout the 2017 legislative session. 




Digest and Highlights













Talking Points


For certain bills that could have a significant impact on Hawaii’s labor and employment laws, the Hawaii Employers Council prepares talking points to assist HEC members in preparing testimony that can be submitted for hearings on those measures.  We also send out legislative alerts via email to our members to alert them when such bills have been scheduled for a hearing.

Please check back during the 2018 legislative session to view talking points we prepare for next year’s bills.
