Social networking (whether blogging, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or the myriad other available options) remains a hot topic for HR departments everywhere. My fellow bloggers have lots of good information on this topic this week:

This week brought us the new regulations on the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, which the LawMemo Employment Law Blog conveniently links for everyone.

The Washington Labor & Employment Wire reports on the introduction of the Arbitration Fairness Act of 2009, which would invalidate all pre-dispute arbitration agreements mandating the arbitration of any employment or civil rights disputes.

The Business of Management reminds employers to be diligent with departing employees’ proprietary information.

HR World gives some information on how to handle hourly employees whose shifts overlap this weekend’s time change.

This week’s review ends with some good news: Where Great Workplaces Start, the blog of the Employers Resource Council, reports on some recent job creation numbers for Ohio.

Presented by Kohrman Jackson & Krantz, with offices in Cleveland and Columbus.
