Paid-FMLA poll results and an employment law blog carnival

Yesterday, I asked you — and when I say you, I’m referring to the best change-agents in the entire universe — whether you were cool with the government requiring your businesses to provide a modest amount of paid family and medical leave to employees.

Of those who responded to the poll — I’m talking the thought-leaders here who clearly deserve a place at the table — 53% said yes; 41% said no.

The rest of you said “baba booey.”

Regardless of how or whether you responded to the poll — I’ll hunt down every last one of you who didn’t — everyone enjoys a carnival, right? You supply the cotton candy, turkey legs, and deep-fried margarine (I like mine with extra cheese), I’ll connect you to the Post-Labor Day: Employment Law Blog Carnival. It’s a Tilt-a-Whirl of all the best employment-law posts from bloggers around the country. A special thank you to Andrea Paris for hosting this month’s ELBC.
