Employers Legal Resource Center Closed for Labor Day

By | September 1st, 2017 | News

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!)
