From time to time, I have a conversation on this blog (titled “The Dialogue”) with Nina Pirrotti, a prominent labor & employment attorney representing employees in the New Haven area.

With all of us now working from home for the foreseeable future, Nina and I thought we’d bring back this recurring feature — with a pandemic twist. We did the conversation via video conference!

Because if there’s a winner from this loser of a year so far, it’s the widescale adoption of the video conference.  Never mind that my home office is doubling as our “bunker” with extra supplies (Pop Tarts anyone?).  It’s just good to connect.

In this segment, we talk about what our respective clients have been going through and where we see this crisis in a few months.

My thanks, as always, to Nina for the conversation.  Attorneys representing management and employees can sometimes disagree but we don’t have to be disagreeable with each other.  And judging from the collegiality on the CBA’s message boards, I know there are many others that feel the same as well.
