Perspectives on Work

Perspectives on Work brings various workplace viewpoints into one place. This publication delivers LERA's mission as the place where professionals involved with labor and employment relations meet, discuss, and share best practices. LERA watches, connects, and delivers what you need right here, when you need it.

Think of this as "Cliff's Notes" for the larger issues facing LER. We may not agree on answers or sing campfire songs, but you can take away how one big trends impact everyone in very different ways.
