NJ Set to Pass Sick Leave Law- Will This Set a New Precedent?

Following the recent passing of A1827 by the New Jersey Senate, the state is poised to become the 10th in the nation to enact a paid sick leave law. Known for being a worker-friendly state, it's not surprising that New Jersey's lawmakers have rallied behind this new bill.

Employees Who Work on Vacation May Not Be Doing Employers Any Favors

The days of employees taking relaxing vacations away from their jobs are fading fast.

The new fiduciary rule that was supposed to go into effect in April 2017 is the subject of a proposed delay and potential reversal that has much of the financial-advising industry in limbo.

The Employer's Responsibility in the Continuation of Health Coverage

The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) provided workers who left jobs with an option to continue in their group health plans.
