Labor & Employment Attorneys Join Employee Benefits Attorneys to Provide All-Encompassing Commentary and Guidance on Regulatory Issues Facing Employers
Nashville, Tenn. (February 14, 2017) – Bass, Berry & Sims announces the launch of HR Law Talk, a blog that provides employers with all-encompassing legal guidance in today's quickly-evolving regulatory landscape. HR Law Talk expands coverage from the firm's former Labor Talk blog by bringing in authors from the firm's Employee Benefits Practice Group to complement ongoing updates from the Labor & Employment team. The new blog includes regular coverage on legislative updates, significant rulings and major developments in employment and employee benefits law. The blog is available at http://www.bassberryhrlawtalk.com/. Timely updates will also continue to be featured on the firm's Twitter account dedicated to labor and employee benefits issues, @BassBerryHRLaw.
"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.
