About This Blog

Welcome to Nolo’s Employment Law Blog. We’ll cover court cases, new legislation, and current events that affect the world of employment law. We’ll also look for the employment lessons to be learned from less obvious sources, from TV shows to sporting events.

The blog is written by Lisa Guerin, a senior legal editor at Nolo, and Alayna Schroeder, also a Nolo editor.

Lisa has practiced employment law in government, public interest, and private practice, where she represented clients at all levels of state and federal court and in agency proceedings. Lisa is the author or coauthor of several Nolo books, including The Essential Guide to Family and Medical Leave, The Essential Guide to Workplace Investigations, Create Your Own Employee Handbook, and Dealing With Problem Employees.

Alayna has represented employers in litigation, drafted employee handbooks and policies, and counseled employers on sound employment practices. Alayna also has experience in employment consulting and human resources. She is the coauthor of Nolo’s Essential Guide to Buying Your First Home.

The opinions expressed in this blog do not necessarily reflect the views of Nolo, its clients, or its partners. This blog provides legal information, not advice. Consult a lawyer if you want professional assurance regarding how the law applies to your situation.
