    ADA concerns when an employee seems suicidal
    National Law Review
    As people in the world, we face difficult situations all the time. If someone seems sad or depressed, we may want to help but not know how. When it's your employee who is going through tough times, you may have legal concerns to worry about too. It's good to be as prepared as possible beforehand. For example, let's imagine that one of your employees seems depressed and starts making comments around the workplace about hurting him or herself.

    Does that company offer an EAP? Now job seekers can find out before the interview
    The Motley Fool
    To give employees a clearer picture of what companies offer — and to allow companies to play up their perks — career site Glassdoor recently launched a new benefits feature that shows employee ratings of 50 types of benefits and perks for companies. This is a cool feature for job seekers, who can save time by seeking out only the potential employers with the benefits they want, and by running Glassdoor's benefits comparison tool on the companies they're considering. It can also help companies save time and money recruiting the best matches for what they offer.

    Innovative program helps mentally ill find, keep jobs
    Daily Herald Media
    The nation's unemployment rate — currently 6.2 percent — is a statistic that gets plenty of scrutiny. But it pales in comparison to 82 percent. That's the U.S. unemployment rate among people with serious mental illnesses, according to a recent report from the National Alliance on Mental Illness. And five professionals at North Central Health Care in Wausau have dedicated themselves to turning those numbers around.
