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”.

Zooming from the bathroom? Ewww


Charged now with enforcing sanitation in the workplace, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration likely has no plans to inspect home office conditions during the pandemic — and that might be a good thing for telecommuters who recently admitted doing work from the toilet.

Home contractor website CraftJack surveyed 1,255 Americans who transitioned from being office workers to remote workers over the past 24 months and found that many remote workers are “getting a little too comfortable working from home.” 

Highlights of the study include that 60% of pandemic-era telecommuters admit to working from the toilet at least one time a week, two out of three workers have attended virtual meetings without brushing teeth, 88% are working in their pajamas, 84% work barefoot, and 16% have worked naked.

Beyond that, in the 24 months of remote work, people admit to wearing less makeup (92%), washing hair less frequently (52%), or washing their hands less often after going to the bathroom (34%), according to the results.
