Did you ever read some study or report in the newspaper, and then months later wonder how to find the information again? Or hear some interesting statistics you’d like to have at your fingertips, but don’t know where to look? Have you wanted to keep track of the latest legislative developments, or wondered what employment laws people in other states were trying to get passed this year? I know that I have–it’s pretty much impossible to keep track of all the facts, figures and legislative campaigns out there.
That’s why we’ve created two new areas in our site’s “News and Issues” section. In “Workplace By the Numbers,” you’ll find a compilation of the latest news articles that contain information about workplace-related studies and reports. Along with a link to the news article reporting on the statistics, you’ll find a short summary of the conclusions reached by the researchers, as well as a link to the original report, if it’s available on the web. Even after the original news article is no longer available online, the summary will remain available at our site, serving as a resource for additional research if necessary.
In the “Federal and State Legislative News” area of our site, we’ve compiled all the stories we can find about legislative developments going on right now across the United States. The summaries cover the U.S. Congress and what’s happening on the federal level, plus a map makes it easy to find out what’s going on in your state or other states around the country. We will also soon be adding regulatory news to this area, so that you can also keep track of noteworthy activities by the EEOC, Department of Labor, and other government organizations whose work affects your rights in the workplace.
We hope you find these two new topical compilation areas helpful, and if there are any others you would like to see, please let us know, via e-mail, and we’ll see what we can do to make our site even more helpful to you.
