Advocacy Center

The Voice of the Remodeling IndustrySM

As The Voice of the Remodeling Industry NARI is looking out for our professional interests. Our Government Affairs committee helps our members navigate laws and regulations that might impact their business.

The Committee exists to facilitate members' involvement in advocacy issues and to inform members about newly developing laws and regulations.

Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

This new new employment law went into effect June 27, 2023. In addition to the Pump for Nursing Mothers Act, these two laws may impact our members' businesses.

​NARI is pleased to provide our members with this summary of the impact of these laws (NOTE: NARI member login is required).

DOL Independent Contractor Plan

NARI recently signed on to a letter from the United States Chamber of Commerce (USCOC) opposing a proposed new Department of Labor (DOL) rule regarding classification of independent contractors. According to USCOC, “The proposed rule “would negatively impact employers and independent contractors in a number of ways.” 

With continued labor shortages and future economic uncertainty, the use of independent contractors is essential for many businesses in our industry to help fill skilled trade gaps and manage businesses and time schedules appropriately. Creating more cumbersome rules creates unnecessary hardships for businesses and does not promote business growth but instead limits a business’s ability to manage time schedules and costs efficiently and responsibly. Read the letter that NARI signed.

Inflation Reduction Act

In early 2023, NARI's Government Affairs Committee produced a two-page guide for NARI members about the Inflation Reduction Act, explaining its potential impact on remodelers. Click here to download it. (NARI member login required)
