WIRTW #186 (the carnival edition)

This week marks the 186th edition of What I Read This Week, where I share the best what caught my eye as I surfed around the blogosphere (mostly) for the last 7 days. This week, Eric Meyer’s The Employer Handbook launched the Employment Law Blog Carnival, a monthly collection of submitted blog links on employment law arranged around a particular theme. I’ll be hosting the Carnival’s 2nd edition (theme tbd), on August 17, so feel free to send ( or DM (@jonhyman) your links by August 15.

I’d also be remiss if I did not give one more plug for Stephanie Thomas’s Proactive Employer Podcast on social media, in which I participated, which aired live at 8:30 this morning. Part 2 airs next Friday at the same time. Both installments will be available for on-demand listening at The Proactive Employer and via iTunes.

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


Social Media & Workplace Technology

Employment Relations & HR

Wage & Hour

Labor Relations
