[Re-posted from August 5th]
We are pleased to report that Employment Matters was recently ranked as the No. 1 Employment Law Blog and the No. 10 overall Legal Blog in LexBlog’s AmLaw 200 Blog Benchmark Report, which you can read here. These rankings are based on overall traffic so we absolutely could not have done this without our readers (that’s you!). Thank you for your continued support. We will endeavor to keep up the good work and continue to generate content that will help you manage your workforces and reduce your exposure.
With that bit of self-indulgent throat-clearing now out of the way, we need to ask you a quick favor: If you’ve enjoyed reading Employment Matters, please note that nominations are now open for the Blawg 100 Amici, the American Bar Association’s list of top 100 best legal blogs. Since rankings are based on nominations (both the quantity and quality thereof), we would greatly appreciate your support by nominating us via the ABA’s nomination form. Nominations are due by Sunday, August 16. You will have to complete some information such as your name and email address. You will also have to input the Employment Matters URL (which is /) and a link to a recent blog post (you can use this one: /2015/07/dol-releases-guidance-indicating-that-independent-contractor-classification-is-restricted-to-a-narrow-class-of-workers/). You will also be asked to state why you are a “fan” of the blog in 500 words or less, and we have no problem if you opt for the "less" as long as you say something!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We thank you in advance for any support you can provide here.
Michael Arnold and David Barmak, Employment Matters Editors
