WIRTW #158 (the Merry Christmas edition)

As has become my year-end tradition, next week I will countdown the top 10 labor and employment stories of the year. I do this for two reason: 1) I think it’s important to look back at the last year to understand where we will go next year, and 2) I always take the week between Christmas and New Year’s off to spend with my family.

As my holiday gift to everyone, enjoy David Bowie and Bing Crosby’s Little Drummer Boy, faithfully (and hilariously) recreated by Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly. Merry Christmas everyone.

(If you’re a last minute shopper and are still searching for the perfect gift for me, there are still 7 days left to vote for the top labor & employment blog at the ABA’s Blawg 100).

As a special note this week, thank you to Molly DiBianca and her Delaware Employment Law Blog for including me on her list of the top 100 employment law blogs. I encourage everyone to jump over to Molly’s blog (a fellow Blawg 100 honoree) to find the most comprehensive list of labor and employment law blogs around.

Here’s the rest of what I read this week:

Background Checks


Social Media & Technology
