FMLA


Thanks to Daniel Schwartz for an informative post about changes to the FMLA notice that employers must post. Employers have the option to keep their old posting or use the new notice so this exact change isn't monumental.

However, the FMLA topic highlights the fact that many states have their own FMLA statutes so a certain degree of caution is called for in those states. Here is a table listing states with their own FMLA statutes.

Paper to Digital

In paper to digital projects, its essential that the new digital documents (ok, I could have called them scanned paper documents) get merged into the firm's document repository easily and quickly. The folks at DocSolid continue to refine their solution with an impressive portfolio of document management touch points that do indeed make it fast and easy. The end result, users are locating active or archived digital content with a single toolset (your document management system) - regardless of source (paper, MS-Word, email, etc..).

As you are planning your paper to digital strategy, don't overlook the questions of where-to-store-it and how-to-retrieve-it.

Must Read Articles


The 2015 Amlaw numbers have been compiled and they are very lumpy. Some firms did very well year-over-year and many firms only fared moderately well. Opinion: a market bifurcation is underway which will see some firms continue to enjoy impressive profits, and ultimately use that leverage to absorb firms moving in the opposite direction.

The big question: what's the secret sauce delivering those profits? Excellent client service? Innovation? Creativity?
