These were the most popular employment law blog posts of 2021


If it had anything to do with COVID-19 vaccination mandates, y’all were reading. That and the third-most-read post, which leaves me wondering whether I should be taking out a restraining order against some of you.

Here are the most-read posts from 2021:

5. “And just like that, the CMS vaccine mandate is back on in 26 states. Ok, 25 states. Maybe.” (December 17, 2021)
4. “OSHA updated its COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing ETS Frequently Asked Questions.” (December 27, 2021)
3. “Is it legal to fire over 900 employees at once over Zoom?” (December 9, 2021)
2. “Why might OSHA’s vax-or-test mandate be legal after all? And what should employers be doing about it?” (December 20, 2021)
1. “Why is the employment lawyer blogging late on a Friday night? (Hint: ⚖️💉🤯)” (December 17, 2021)

(Thank you for waiting until December to test the Bloggerdome’s limits — when I added plutonium-grade blog servers with a five-year warranty.)

I think we can even handle a few more subscribers. 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 4,132 subscribers and added about twenty percent to 4,894. Let’s get to 5K!

Blogging employment lawyers seem to be all about predictions for the year to come. I won’t try to predict anything. Instead, I’ll repeat what I said last year in an attempt to conjure up a reverse-jinx.

“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 2022 🍻🥂
