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”.

Gimme a break; employees want more special circumstances time off


Human resources folks and the C suite are on notice: breaking up is hard to do, it’s also awful when your plant dies, and when you have a hangover.

A new poll released this month by human resources regulatory compliance company Trusaic has ranked the kind of unusual new job benefits that employees would like to see employers offer – including both “Breakup leave,” “Hangover leave” and “Houseplant bereavement leave.”

A quarter of all respondents in the poll voted for “Paid celebration recovery leave,” otherwise known as “Hangover leave” as a fantasy job perk they would like to see employers offer, according to Trusaic.

On breakups, 17% of all respondents chose “Breakup leave” as a desired job perk for employers to begin offering. On that note, some want time off to break up with social media: 12% of respondents chose “Social media detox days” as a job perk that they would like to see from their employers.

Another pain point? When your sports team loses: 9% of respondents opted for this time off to mourn a team’s major loss. For those who love their houseplants, 5% want a special day to mourn that loss.
