NLRB: You can't require employees to be positive or professional
By Steve Cape
Employers have long operated on the idea that when an employee uses the company email, it will only be for business purposes. That may be coming to an end if the National Labor Relations Board has its way. The NLRB is broadly interpreting the National Labor Relations Act to say that employees can take part in concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining, mutual aid or protection. But their interpretation of it is pushing the edges of sanity.

What? No job postings?!?
ERE.net
Michael Bailen writes, "If you ask my team, they will tell you that I love change and innovation. In the last couple of years I’ve helped push our team to new heights in sourcing, pioneering, and exploring new HR technology, building in efficiencies and finding unique ways to connect with potential candidates.

Minimum wage: The time is now to increase workers' pay
By Danielle Wegert
Minimum-wage employees make $7.25 per hour. Is this enough to live on? Is this enough to support a small family? According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, a minimum-wage employee in California must work 130 hours to afford a two-bedroom apartment. In Arkansas, that same worker must work 63 hours to afford that same apartment. However, there is not one state in the United States that a minimum-wage employee can work a standard 40-hour workweek and afford an apartment. Do you still think minimum wage is enough to survive?

Fox Business
No employer wants to hire someone with a bad attitude or poor work ethic, and who can blame them?

Reasons to consider 'paying' instead of 'playing'
The Staffing Stream
Many commercial staffing firms say that they will resolve the “pay or play” decision mandated by the Affordable Care Act by “playing” — beginning to offer comprehensive (“minimum value”) health insurance to their full-time assigned employees. The “play” strategy may work for some companies.
