Thanks to the magical ability to schedule posts in advance, I am with my family in Disney World while you’re reading today’s WIRTW. Next week, I will be running a series of what I think are some of my best posts from earlier this year. Today, take a look at what I think are some of the best posts from my fellow employment law and HR bloggers from earlier this week.

Molly DiBianca at the Delaware Employment Law Blog has yet another story of someone who got herself in trouble for something posted on a social networking site.

Nick Fishman at the employeescreenIQ Blog discusses Equifax’s decision to stop selling credit reports for employment purposes.

Paul Secunda at the Workplace Prof Blog thinks employers that test employees for legally prescribed drugs are “clueless.”
