Sure, I could talk about the new legislation pending at the General Assembly but until we get an actual vote (instead of just committee), we’re still in speculation territory. (The CBIA has an update here.)
And sure, I could talk more about the NLRB’s aggressive decision to try to invalidate most confidentiality and non-disparagement clauses and the General Counsel’s memo attempting to foreclose arguments. But again, until we get a court decision on the subject, it’s still unclear where this is going to end up.
Instead, I’ve been thinking a lot about ChatGPT and it’s impact in the workplace. Is it going to replace some of the legal work we’re doing? What about the blog posts we write?
But vacation time is coming up soon and I’ve run out of time for a deep dive on the latest. So instead, I asked ChatGPT to talk briefly about the key benefits of vacation. Here was what it came up with:
Reduced Stress: Vacations provide a break from work-related stressors, leading to improved physical and mental health.
Improved Productivity: By taking a break from work, you can recharge your batteries and return to work refreshed and energized, leading to increased productivity and better decision-making.
Better Relationships: Vacations provide an opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones, strengthen bonds, and create lasting memories, improving relationships.
All things that I would’ve mentioned if I were to take vacation. But on the other hand, it saved some time.
We’re starting to see more legal analysis and more discussions about how HR is going to use these large language models. The Evil HR Lady did a fun post recently on HR policies using ChatGPT (just not quite yet?).
But for now, I’m going to take some time off from blogging and work; not to worry though, I’ll be reposting some popular posts.
See you all on the other side. At least if ChatGPT doesn’t take over first.
