What else I'm reading this week #2

For those of you who've been with me for some time, you'll notice that the blog went under a bit of a redesign this week. I've not only made it a little more reader friendly, but I've also added some new functionality to the site. On the sidebar to the right you'll see a box that lists all of the items I've shared this week from my Google Reader account. Each Friday, I'm going to archive each week's links in a post. So without further fanfare, here's what I've been reading this week (in no particular order):

Please stop annoying me, from The Evil HR Lady, giving advice on the issue of unpaid time as a wage and hour violation.

CBO estimates minimal costs necessary to enforce ENDA, from Workplace Horizons, reporting that the Congressional Budget Office estimates a 5% increase in EEOC filings if the current version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2007 (which excludes gender identity as a protected class) in enacted.

Family friendly, also from The Evil HR Lady, discussing the difficult choices employees must make between job and family.

AT&T to pay $756,000 for religious bias against Jehovah's Witnesses, from the EEOC, reporting on a failure to accommodate religious discrimination case.
