About EmployerLINC

EmployerLINC: Legal Information, News and Commentary for EmployersA philosopher from ancient Greece once said,
“Change is the only constant.”

How right he was. And to think he never even worked in HR!

Today’s workplace is constantly changing, often leaving employers and their HR and benefits professionals scrambling to keep up with the latest rules and regulations, only to see them overhauled, updated or revised by lawmakers and regulatory agencies time and time again.

While we can’t control such changes, we can help you respond to it.
