Nice article, Mr. Cappelli. 

With Facebook, MySpace & Twitter, I wonder how long it might be before we see non-exempt employees filing wage claims for performing work during non-work related hours and whether exempt or not, how long before workers' compensation claims are also filed for injuries that allegedly happened in the process of texting or responding to work issues.

A company may defend itself by stating it wasn't authorized work, but if it was work nonetheless and precedent indicates previous contributions or benefits have been reaped by the employer on other non-work related hours, would a DOL auditor really care?

I really liked your recent article on Benefiting from Relationships.  Thrivent's business model reminds me of SHRM -- although SHRM has half the chapters Thrivent has.
