Day Pitney has announced that the firm's Employer's Law Blog has recently been listed as a resource on the U.S. Department of Labor's website. It is one of only five blogs nationwide to be listed on the site with the Wirtz Labor Law Library's Law Tips Archive.

"This is a fitting compliment to the quality content of our blog," said partner and blog editor-in-chief Wendy Johnson Lario. "We've only been live for six months, but we already have a wealth of topical employment law information. What makes the Employer's Law Blog different is its business perspective. Our blog is designed for in-house counsel and HR professionals who want to keep up with pertinent developments."
