Have a general question about employment law? Want to share a story? I welcome all comments and questions. I can't give legal advice here about specific situations but will be glad to discuss general issues and try to point you in the right direction. If you need legal advice, contact an employment lawyer in your state. Remember, anything you post here will be seen publicly, and I will comment publicly on it. It will not be confidential. Govern yourself accordingly. If you want to communicate with me confidentially as Donna Ballman, Florida lawyer rather than as Donna Ballman, blogger, my firm's website is here.

Congratulations to the Blawg 100!

I'm incredibly honored to have Screw You Guys, I'm Going Home named one of the American Bar Association's Blawg 100 of 2011. Out of over 1300 nominated, eight of my favorite labor and employment blogs were chosen along with my blog. Of those, I'm pretty sure mine is the only employee-side blog, so I'm extra honored.

Included in the list are:

Employment and Labor Insider by Robin Shea

The Employer Handbook by Eric Meyer

Arizoneout by Dinita James

Connecticut Employment Law Blog by Daniel Schwartz

Delaware Employment Law Blog by Molly DiBianca

Ohio Employer's Law Blog by Jon Hyman

FMLA Insights by Jeff Nowak

Work Matters by Mike Maskanka

If you haven't checked these out, you should. They're all well worth reading.

Thanks so much to everyone who nominated me. It really means a lot.

But it's not over. There are 12 categories of blogs, including Labor and Employment, and ABA wants you to vote for your favorite. You can vote once in each category. Registration only takes a minute and it's ultra-simple, I promise. You don't have to be a lawyer to vote.


I appreciate your comments and general questions but this isn't the place to ask confidential legal questions. If you need an employee-side employment lawyer, try http://exchange.nela.org/findalawyer to locate one in your state.
