Link of the Day – Department Of Labor Employment Law Advisor

The U.S. Department of Labor has some very good information on its Web site about employment laws in the United States. The “elaws” portion of the Web site has information for employers and employees. Here is the government’s description:

The elaws Advisors are interactive e-tools that provide easy-to-understand information about a number of federal employment laws. Each Advisor simulates the interaction you might have with an employment law expert. It asks questions and provides answers based on responses given.

Both employees and employers can benefit from elaws.

If you are a business interested in finding information about major DOL employment laws that may apply to your business, visit the FirstStep Employment Law Advisor.

Here are samples of the information available:

FLSA Overtime Calculator Advisor – Helps employers and employees understand overtime pay principles and allows them to calculate overtime pay based on their own data for a sample pay period.

Health Benefits Advisor for Employers – The Employer Section of the Health Benefits Advisor helps private sector employers understand their responsibilities and assists them in complying with the federal laws applicable to their group health plans.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
