New Prez (After All That)

What mattered most for employment law last week was The Inauguration.  Well, not the ceremony itself, but what the change means for HR.

What Really Mattered–MASKS!!

This week’s installation of What Really Mattered reminds us that, yes, the thing that really mattered last week was the renewed focus on mask-wearing as the pandemic surges and Thanksgiving beckons.  Specifically, here in North Carolina, Governor Cooper ramped up the stakes with an Executive  Order issued Monday.  The Order revises previous ones related to […]

What Is “What Really Mattered”?

Welcome to our new blog installation–What Really Mattered. There is no shortage of news pumped out to the HR world, with vendors of all types looking to be relevant.  From our perspective, most of what is published is a cross between a scare tactic and a mountain being made of a molehill. Here is our […]
