Announcing Lawffice Space Tumblr and Paycheck Fairness Act Summary

Yesterday, I highlighted the Five Persistent Challenges to Equal Pay. The Obama administration is pushing to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, and I promised a summary of that legislation  in a future post.

Today I deliver on that promise. However, the post is not here on Lawffice Space. It is on the brand new Lawffice Space Tumblr. If you go there you will find two audio entries discussing six impacts of the Paycheck Fairness Act on employers (Part I | Part II).

Lawffice Space Tumblr? What does this mean?
  1. Lawffice Space is NOT going away and will not change.
  2. Tumblr is just a place where I can put some "quick hits." For example, I have a few links to articles with just a sentence or two about the article on Tumblr. The blog you're reading right now contains longer, more substantive posts.
  3. Tumblr offers some cool features. For example, I can call-in audio entries so the Paycheck Fairness Act audio clips mentioned above were done via cell phone. The photo entries are fun. The format is basic.
In short, Tumblr is just a new play area to put some short-form content, play with a new format, and experiment with some different blogging tools. It is not intended as a replacement to Lawffice Space, but readers of this blog will likely enjoy Lawffice Space Tumblr as well.
