Bloomberg BNA Labor and Employment Law Resource Center: What is it?

This is the first in a four part series blog post spotlighting Bloomberg BNA’s Labor and Employment Law Resource Center.

Bloomberg BNA Labor and Employment Law Resource Center is a database that focuses on seven main areas of employment law, including disabilities law; discrimination law; individual employment rights; labor arbitration and collective bargaining; labor relations; occupational safety; and wages, hours & leave. This hub can connect you with primary sources of labor law, practice tools, BNA manuals, labor and employment news, professional learning opportunities, upcoming events, latest cases, and valuable Bloomberg Law Insights from practitioners.

All seven of the focus areas can be found on the upper left side of the database to sort your search, and they can also be accessed at the top of the page through their individual tabs.
