Last month, our webinar on vaccines was really very popular. Given the breadth of the topic, we didn’t get a chance to answer all the questions that people had. In addition, since that initial program, Connecticut has modified its vaccination eligibility rules meaning employers that thought that they would have some time to think
The Employment Law Debate Questions Each Candidate Should Answer
Every four years I have a dream that an employment law question will be asked at a Presidential Debate.
I have yet to have that dream realized. And if the topics of debate moderator Chris Wallace are to be believed, we will have to wait (still further) for such questions at an upcoming debate.…
Should You Be Deferring the Withholding on Social Security Tax? Not So Fast
You may recall that President Trump issued a memorandum earlier in August 2020 directing the Treasury Secretary to defer the withholding, despite and payment of the employee portion of social security tax for certain employees.

Back to School and Back to Work: The Multiplying Questions and the Unanswerable One
I’m excited. And nervous. And happy. And angry. And energized. And exhausted.
And my oldest daughter hasn’t even started her first day of college next week.

The Five Questions You Must Ask Before Any Employment Decision

Today is Secretary Hillary Clinton’s turn.
- Secretary Clinton, the National Labor Relations Board has been quite active in the Obama years; in fact, despite the failure of Congress to pass the Employee
Election 2016: Three Employment Law Debate Questions For Donald Trump
Each election cycle, I hope that employment law issues will move front and center to the Presidential campaign.
And each cycle, I’m slightly disappointed that such issues only get short shrift. Sigh.
But as I’ve done before, it would be nice to fantasize about employment law questions that could be posed to the…
Hiring Without Employment Law Headaches: Five Tips for Employers
On Friday, I had the opportunity to speak to the Human Resource Association of Greater New Haven. My sincere thanks to them for the invitation.
The group asked me to talk about various legal traps employers face in the hiring process and solutions to avoiding those issues. Here are some of the points we…
The Five Questions You Can’t Ask At A Job Interview
Six years ago, posts about layoffs were in vogue. But it’s been a long while since we focused on posts about hiring.
With the economy generally stable (or shall we dare say improving?), it seems appropriate to talk about job interview questions.
There are lots of posts about the “best” job interview questions…
Election 2012: Debate Questions for President Obama
With the Presidential election just six weeks away, we have yet to see any of the major party candidates tackle employment law issues in detail. That, of course, is not surprising.
But as we head towards the debates, I talked with several other employment lawyers who…
