As the week draws to a close, it’s time for another installment of Quick Hits, where I highlight a few blog posts worth a read.
- As readers know, this week I’ve been posing a series of questions to the major party candidates about employment law. Other lawyers have done the same and Jon Hyman, of the Ohio Employer’s Law Blog, as done a nice job recapping it all this morning. Robin Shea has her recap here. (And as a reminder, be sure to check out posts from Donna Ballman and Eric Meyer as well.)
- It’s not too late to sign up for our free employment law seminars on October 4th and October 18th. Details are available here and here, but if you want to register, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- I’ve heard some people wonder if there are still employers that permit vicious harassment. If the allegations from the EEOC are true in this recent lawsuit, it’s a sign that not all employers have gotten the message that harassment is not permitted.
- A new report in Connecticut shows a variety of efficiencies that the Department of Labor has been pursuing. Among the interesting programs? An increase in fraud prevention for unemployment claims.
