an update for the week of october 10, 2005
today's workplace: the employee rights blog
Doing the Right Thing Without Laws to Require It: Given the current leadership in Washington, it's not likely that we're going to see too many laws providing more protection to workers: instead, we're mostly seeing efforts to scale those back. But even without specific laws in place, there are corporations out there attempting to do right by their employees. While there's the obvious point to make -- that it obviously coincides with their business interests to do so -- unfortunately there are enough companies out there that don't seem to get it that makes these efforts still noteworthy.
