ARLINGTON, Va., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA today unveiled new, direct access to additional labor and employment research tools on the Labor & Employment Law Resource Center™. These tools bring additional depth and clarity to practitioners and specialists as they look for fast answers to complex issues.
BNA Labor PLUS™, a service already available through Bloomberg BNA's Research & Custom Solutions, is now available on the Resource Center. BNA Labor PLUS provides quick access to facts and trends affecting labor organizing and contract negotiations. Users can access five unique and proprietary labor databases including NLRB Elections, Work Stoppages, Unfair Labor Practice Charges, Contract Listings, and Contract Settlement Summaries.
The databases within BNA Labor PLUS are searchable by organization, union and local number, industry, city and state, date, and number of employees — so users can zero in on the labor relations data they need. Quickly find out about organizing efforts, see ULP charges filed against unions, get details of recently negotiated settlements, locate parties to collective bargaining agreements, and research work stoppages by industry with this comprehensive tool powered by hundreds of thousands of documents. BNA Labor PLUS features a new, easy-to-use Navigator format, which allows for simultaneous search across all five databases or focused on one database.
Additionally, two other new tools have been added to the Labor & Employment Law Resource Center. The new State Law Chart Builder enables users to generate customized charts comparing the requirements of state employment laws in areas including benefits, compensation, leave, and work rules. Results can be exported into spreadsheet format, where users can review summaries organized by selected topic area and state(s) to understand nuances and develop sound workplace policies.
Finally, the new Compare Tool helps users analyze old and new versions of labor and employment-related U.S. Code provisions, facilitating research in cases where statutory amendments affect interpretations of the law.
"Since 2010 when we first introduced the Labor & Employment Law Resource Center to the marketplace, we been in constant communication with our customers to best understand how we can make this award-winning, best-selling service an even more integral part of the work our customers do," said Michael Eisenstein, Vice President and Group Publisher for Bloomberg BNA's Legal & Business Publishing Group. "With the welcome addition of dozens of treatises and other customer-driven enhancements to the platform earlier this year, we are thrilled to let the marketplace – and specifically our customers – know we have added even more tools to help make the most of their research time."
