What else I'm reading this week #27

I thought it only appropriate to start this week's review with a picture from the balcony where I did a lot of this week's reading.

Anyhow, back to reality.

Wayne Schiess's legal-writing blog reports that Congress has passed something called the Plain Language in Government Communications Act of 2008. If laws start being written in plain English, what am I going to do for a living?

The Labor and Employment Law Blog provides 13 factors to consider in conducting a proper workplace investigation.

SCOTUS Blog tells us that the Supreme Court is considering taking up the scope of Title VII's religious exemption. discusses the intersection between family-friendly workplaces and family responsibility discrimination.

Finally, BLR's HR Daily Advisor enlightens employers as to the pitfalls that await those who misclassify non-exempt employees as exempt.
