HAPPY VETERANS DAY 2017!

By | November 8th, 2017 | News » Leave a comment

“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.” – Abraham Lincoln

We at Employers Legal Resource Center (ELRC) would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to the U.S. Military for their honorable service. We also celebrate the most recent reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which report that our veteran unemployment rate is 2.7 percent, down from 4.3 percent last year! We are excited about the efforts employers are making to employ our veterans.

Although ELRC honors our veterans and recognizes Veterans Day, like 78% of employers, we will celebrate the day at work. You can catch us that day during regular business hours.

This Friday is National Love Your Lawyer Day!

By | November 1st, 2017 | News » Leave a comment

Friday, November 3rd, is “Love Your Lawyer Day”. This noteworthy celebration was proposed by the American Lawyers Public Image Association (ALPIA) founder, Nader Anise, in 2001 to encourage the public and lawyers to honor the profession of law and to promote a more positive image of lawyers and judges in our nation. Although lawyers are portrayed in movies and novels as liars, shysters, or crooks (“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” William Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part 2), they often are at the forefront of positive change (think the civil rights struggle and desegregation of schools).  It is commonly joked that people may hate lawyers — until they need one! In studies of those who actually recently used a lawyer’s services, the overwhelming majority are very satisfied with their lawyer’s services.  So, if you’ve had a positive experience with your lawyer, remember them today and express some love!

With Halloween falling on a Tuesday this year, now is the time for employers to send out reminders to encourage employees to be mindful of how Halloween should be observed in the workplace! Don’t forget to provide examples of inappropriate costumes, such as costumes that are too revealing or may be viewed as offensive based on their gender, ethnic, religious, or racial implications. Other than any employees dressing up, how is your company observing Halloween this year?

By | September 1st, 2017 | News » Leave a comment

Although frequently considered the unofficial last day of summer, Labor Day originated as a celebration of the contributions and achievements of American workers.  Indeed, our businesses most valuable resources.  If you want to sound smart at your Labor Day barbeque, you might toss around some of these interesting Labor Day facts:

  • Labor Day isn’t a holiday that is original to the United States. It actually originated in Toronto, Canada in 1872
  • Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day an official government holiday, which it did in 1872
  • Labor Day became a national holiday in 1894, when Congress passed a bill establishing the first Monday in September each year as “Labor Day”

Enjoy your Labor Day! (Oh, and our offices will be closed so that we can enjoy the holiday ourselves!)
