"HR Law Talk is a resource for in-house counsel, business owners and human resource professionals who are charged with navigating the highly regulated and constantly changing employment and benefits legal landscape," said Tim Garrett, labor and employment attorney and editor of HR Law Talk. "This is especially timely as many issues are sure to be addressed and adjusted under the new administration."

HR Law Talk focuses on the wide range topics on which the blog's roster of authors regularly counsel employers, including unlawful discrimination related to race, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity; FMLA; wage and hour; overtime exemption; non-compete agreements; retirement plan administration; wellness programs; Affordable Care Act compliance; union organizing; contract negotiations and interpretation; and other updates under the National Labor Relations Act. Dustin Carlton, who is licensed in both Tennessee and California, will also provide regular updates on labor law from the California courts, which are typically at the forefront of national regulation.
