WIRTW #206 (the “…and a happy New Year” edition)

Today marks the Blog’s last original post of 2011 (if you count a weekly summary as original content). Next week, I will run the 4th annual year-end countdown. In past years, I’ve counted down the top 10 labor and employment stories of that year. This year, I’ll be doing it a little differently. I’ll be recapping what I consider to be the best posts of 2011. Inevitably, we’ll hit some of the year’s biggest stories (social media, Wal-Mart v. Dukes, the EEOC, the ADA) too. What you’ll read, however, are the 10 pots of which I am the most proud from the past year, which will include some (but not all) of the year’s most newsworthy and important stories.

Everyone have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, celebratory something else, and a safe New Year. I’ll be back on Tuesday, January 3, with brand new content for 2012.

In the meantime, if you want to give me an early Christmas present, cast your vote for the ABA Journal’s Blawg 100 (here to register, and here to vote). Thanks for your support.

Here’s what I read this week:


Social Media & Workplace Technology
