2013VOTETHISBLAWG.jpgI am delighted and downright humbled to announce that our FMLA Insights blog has been selected for the third consecutive year as one of the Top 100 Legal Blogs of 2013 by the ABA Journal! In its 7th Annual ABA Journal Blawg 100, the ABA Journal also was kind enough to name FMLA Insights among only seven labor and employment blogs receiving this honor.

We are touched by the many attorneys, HR professionals and other friends of the blog who nominated our blog for this honor. In its announcement, the ABA Journal published a snippet of one of our nominations, which was submitted by Johanna Ellison of the law firm Fogle Keller Purdy in Lexington, Kentucky:

I enjoy the fact that Jeff [Nowak] uses not just recent court decisions but also recent current events (such as the birth of the next heir to the British throne) to teach FMLA concepts. He’s also a very engaging writer; it’s a bright spot in my day when I receive a link to a new post.

Oh, Johanna, I’m blushing.  

Seriously though, thanks to all of you for your support and for following our little FMLA blog.  

By this point, I know I have asked for too many favors.  But I press my luck in asking one more time. Would you be willing to take a few seconds to vote for FMLA Insights as the very TOP blog of the Top 100?

Congrats to the other six employment blogs who made the list – they definitely are worth the read and your vote: Dan Schwartz’s Connecticut Employment Law Blog (who was named to the Blawg 100’s Hall of Fame), Molly DiBianca’s Delaware Employment Law Blog, Eric Meyer’s The Employer Handbook, Jon Hyman’s Ohio Employer’s Law Blog, Donna Ballman’s Screw You Guys, I’m Going Home, and Seyfarth Shaw’s Trading Secrets.
