For most, 2020 was a big dumpster fire.
COVID-19 didn’t exactly do wonders for the ruby-studded computer servers in the Bloggerdome. When stuff got real in March, this blog caught 🔥🔥🔥.
Take a look at the top posts from 2020:
5. “GOTCHA! You won’t believe how one company unraveled an employee’s ‘flat tire’ absence excuse” (January 10, 2020)
4. “The EEOC has just weighed in on what employers should know about the Coronavirus and the ADA” (March 4, 2020)
3. “🚨Another federal agency has issued Coronavirus guidance to help your workplace🚨” (March 11, 2020)
2. “DOL issues a Families First Coronavirus Response Act notice. And employment law nerds, like me, spotlight an error.” (March 26, 2020)
And the most popular post of 2020 was actually a plug for our first Zoom or Facebook live Happy Hour or whatever the heck we did back then.
“Okay, back to #CoronavirusHR. We have a new law — yes LAW — the EEOC weighs in, and we’re chatting on Friday at noon!” (March 19, 2020)
Speaking of which, thank you to the couple hundred people who turned out yesterday for the final Zoom sesh of the year. ICYMI, head over to The Employer Handbook YouTube Channel and watch it here. Hey, while you’re at it, don’t forget to click the “thumbs up” on the video if you like it, leave a comment, and subscribe to the channel so that you can get notifications when new videos go live.
Additionally, if you know someone who might like to subscribe to receive these blog posts via email, please invite them to do so. We started the year with 2,856 subscribers and ballooned to 4,132—the more, the merrier.
Folks, we made it! Amidst some of the worst working conditions that I’ve seen since practicing employment law, you displayed courage and compassion. I also can’t say enough about your aptitude for all things coronavirus and your fluidity to adapt to the constantly changing rules and working conditions.
We’ve learned so much about how a pandemic can impact the workplace. Let’s all hope that it will all go to waste by some point in the new year, and we can get back to focusing on more mundane matters like EEO-1’s and avoiding liability at the holiday party.
Cheers to a brighter, healthier, and happier 2021 🍻🥂
