BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Employee comfort is all in the wrist


International law firm Clyde & Co. has introduced colored wrist bands for employees to indicate their degree of comfort in having physical contact with others in light of COVID.

Rob Hill, Clyde & Co.’s U.K. board chair, said in a statement, “Our shift to hybrid working has been really positive, but we are keen to make sure that everyone feels comfortable in the office and confident to express their preferences.”

According to British legal blog “RollOnFriday,” which reported on the wristbands, a green wristband means “you are ready to shake hands and get back to 2019 norms”; a yellow band means, “great to see you but perhaps elbow bumps only for now”; and a red wristband equals “greet from six feet” and signals “you are being quite cautious.”

A Clyde spokeswoman, who confirmed the report, said this is only being done in the United Kingdom, with no date set for the U.S. offices’ return to the office.

A comment on the blog’s website states, “They work really well... I tend to keep a red one handy to pop on when certain partners approach.”

Another comment, perhaps tongue in cheek, states that at one firm the bands are considered too expensive and the office manager instead “dabs our foreheads with a bingo pen in the morning.”
