What else I'm reading this week #11

Given the mid-week holiday, it's still been pretty active in the blogosphere. As always, please take the time to click through these links and support my fellow employment law and HR bloggers.

John Phillips' The Word on Employment Law reports on a story that's had a lot of traction this week, Wikipedia's failure to discover the criminal history of its former COO, and draws some important lessons on the importance of conducting background checks for critical positions.

HR World blogs on how to handle bullying bosses. You can also read my thoughts on this issue here: Sticks and stones may break my bones...

The Manpower Employment Blawg draws some important lessons on FMLA leaves of absence from a case which held that formal notice is not necessary for an employee to be entitled to FMLA leave.

Finally, Texas' HR Lawyer's Blog discusses some employment law pitfalls that await those who carelessly e-mail.
