It’s a big day today. The U.S. plays Belgium in the World Cup this afternoon. We’ve already covered it twice from a workplace morale and absence perspective, so we thought it appropriate to revisit perhaps the most notorious incident of the World Cup so far: A Workplace Violence Incident. My colleague, Chris Engler, gives us
Since the last time I published a list of labor & employment law lawyers to follow back in 2012, there are just a bunch of you out there now using Twitter. (And I presume you’re already following me @danielschwartz, right?)
So, it’s probably time to update my list of labor & employment law-related people…
January is almost over, which probably seems a little strange to be talking about what happened in 2013.
But as someone who majored in history in college, I’m a firm believer that you can learn a lot by studying the past — even the recent one.
Which is why I’m excited about tomorrow’s presentation that…
This afternoon, I’m speaking at Workforce HR’s Techweek Conference on “Going Mobile”. It’s not too late to join us here as it is an online conference.
Oh, and did I mention that it’s FREE. There, got your attention.
One of the topics that I’ll be talking on is the legal risks involved with “going mobile”…
Two days after a freak October snowstorm hit the state, nearly 750,000 households are still without power. In towns all across Connecticut (and where I live), there is literally NO power to the entire town. Where I live, school is likely to be canceled for…
I’m pleased to announce that I can check one thing off my bucket list, at least in part.
I can now announce the publication (finally) of ” Think Before You Click: Strategies for Managing Social Media in the Workplace” (in rough form, it was previously called “HR and Social Media: Practical and Legal Guidance”).
Fortunately for me with a busy practice, I merely had to contribute a chapter; the credit for the whole book is rightly placed with Jon Hyman — author of the Ohio Employer’s Law Blog — who edited the book and coordinated its publication.
I’m pleased to announce that my firm’s employment law department will be presenting a morning/lunch program on May 20, 2011 in Hartford, Connecticut that is geared to both in-house counsel and HR professionals.
It will also feature representatives of local companies and state officials.
It is now set for May 20th and will…
Consider this scenario.
An administrative assistant who’s been working solidly for the company for two years comes to you, as an HR manager, and says she’s been harassed by a manager over her looks.
You need to talk with manager about the allegations.
What do you do?
That’s the scenario posed in a recent article posted…
Over two (!) years ago, I posted on how you could learn various employment law lessons from television shows such as Lost or The Office.
Among the lessons at the time: Make Alliances, Follow your Instincts and Find Success as a Team.
Another theme that the show continually relied upon: If you can’t live together, you’ll die alone. It’s…
We had a great turnout and reaction to the presentation yesterday at the CBIA Human Resources Conference in Rocky Hill. My thanks to all who sat in our packed room and the great questions that everyone asked.
A few observations from the conference:
