“Relevance” means that the topic discussed directly related to an Employment Law issue.
“Substance” means that the reader will be able to understand what the issue being discussed is about, or what the speaker meant by the quote. “‘We stand by our policy’, said the CEO” is NOT a quote of substance.
“Variety” means that the quotes are on a variety of topics, not all on racial discrimination or labor relations, for example.
“Sources” means that the publication is a recognized business publication, newspaper, magazine, journal, etc., and means that different sources and topics are used (not just one periodical, and certainly not just one issue).
“Recency” means that the stories quoted can be considered current.
