Transitions: Welcome to the California Employment Law Blog

I started this blog in January, 2009, because my favorite blogger stopped posting, and I realized that the only way I was going to get my daily fix was if I did it myself. In January, 2010, I started my Mediation and Negotiation Blog to write about my mediation practice and the books and articles I was reading on negotiation.

Between the two blogs, I've published 349 posts over the last three years (this is number 350) and I've had almost 115,000 page views -- almost 100,000 of them on this blog alone. I've spent a tremendous amount of time writing, frequently as a way of avoiding the real work piled up on my desk, and the blog has become part of who I am, rather than just something I do.

So it feels a little strange to be re-naming the blog today. But the fact is that my mediation practice is more broad than my litigation practice was. I am mediating all types of employment law cases. In the last month, I've mediated discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination cases, along with wage and hour cases -- both individual cases and class actions. It's only fitting that I would broaden the scope of the blog and -- because it's no longer focused so closely on wage and hour, class action, and arbitration issues -- to call it what it now is: The California Employment Law Blog.

A note to anyone who may be concerned that they will lose a great place to read about wage and hour developments: Don't worry. I'm going to continue posting on wage and hour, class actions, and arbitration. It's just that I'm also going to be putting more focus on FEHA, Title VII, retaliation, whistle-blowers, employee trade secret claims, and the other employment law claims that my mediation clients are interested in.

As always, I hope you find the blog helpful.
