Technology, Law, and the Workplace: Week in Review

After a week out of the office, I am returning for duty at The Modern Workplace. And why not start the week off right with a Week in Review summary?

Given the material covered by this expanded summary, I won’t add my own spin on the news in the world of technology and labor and employment law. However, watch for an article later this week on hiring for technology jobs, one of the hot topics discussed below. This is an area where there seems to be a perfect storm of an expanding industry and increasing government interest.

Without further ado, your week in review!
