My opinion? Employers trying to circumvent class actions via arbitration clauses may wind up compelling their workforce to unionize.
Re: Arbitration Everywhere: NLRB Finds AT&T’s Non-Mandatory Arbitration Agreement w/ Non-Union Employees Unlawful…

After considering many options, I've decided on my Halloween costume this year. I will be dressed as a "wardrobe malfunction."
A trick or treat, depending on perspective: Anonymous really is leaking KKK members' names, info online:
And, to do that, you need a good employment lawyer. ;)
So, question is: How does employer/accuser avoid lawsuit by person accused of harassment/discrim? Dot the "i's" and cross the legal "t's."
This comes into play if someone is terminated for "cause" and may be compelled by future employers to answer questions related to prior job.
Some states recognize claims for "self published" defamation, where a person is compelled to repeat defamatory statement to others.
Challenge with this type of incident in entertainment world is publicity which does not usually accompany a claim brought in other contexts.
That right extends to third persons who are not employees, but encounter such misconduct by employees conducting business of employer.
Because the law encourages & protects the right of persons to report harassment or discrimination in a workplace, Swift has strong defense.
On the other hand, handling the matter requires confidentiality and protection of the reputational & business interests of both parties.
The challenge?: On one "hand" the law, and future defense, hinge on avenues for reporting incidents & "swift" action taken by employer.

Last, not least, outline self with white tape, and you are now a "crime scene" or, as we lawyers like to say, "Exhibit A" for prosecution.
Start w/ basic black top/bottom & 1) vampire teeth 2) wrap "caution" tape around self and be a "disaster" or "oil slick" or "FL sinkhole" &
Gave a pal advice on how to change up a basic black outfit for three Halloween parties on same night. Don't tell her I shared w/ ya...
I would take R'pubs point re the debate questions more seriously if they had not grilled Hillary for 11 hours with "gotcha" the sole intent.
I suppose this is a throwback, if you throw like a girl.…
In my experience with employees, however, you have to call the plays in the field, no matter how good your game plan.
It's amazing that training is needed to understand removing defects will improve results. But, if it helps leaders accept change, I get it.
I chuckle when I see businesses discussing "Six Sigma" related training need for employee relations. Humans are the ultimate variable.
P.S. R'pubs, as an independent-minded voter, "badass" is one of my requirements for a Presidential candidate...
Well, R'pubs, if you were trying to prove @HillaryClinton is a badass by subjecting her to 11 hours of interrogation, you succeeded!
I'm no math whiz, but I think if you compare potential outcomes, it's pretty clear our tax dollars should be spent on the needs of the many.
Irony? #BenghaziCommittee stuck on why additional security not sent to embassy in Libya rather than why kids aren't secure in U.S. schools?
Maybe it's unfair but reality is I expect Hillary or anyone with her experience in the public eye to be surrounded by infallible advisers.
Been watching the Dem's race as closely as the R'pubs (tho it's less entertaining...) Benghazi & email lesser concern than poor advisers.
So, Biden is sitting this one out. That ups the heat on Hillary to carry the torch, and find a way to bring folks on both sides together.
Sounds a great deal like "Lincoln Lawyer" to me... John Grisham talks new novel "Rogue Lawyer"…
That said, the lawyer in me wonders about the use of facial recognition technology without consent. Is the data stored or just situational?
Been saying for a while it was time for Usher to sing about something other than being in a club. Bravo!…
"Don't tell lies in Heaven, or an angel will get mean." Love that lyric. :)
The morning chill portends the season. Good song for the day.…
This notion effectively takes the "ambulance" out of the chase. And, gives local govts revenue so they won't have to ticket 5mph speeding.
Makes no sense to only allow civil remedies after injury or death. Why not let plaintiffs' lawyers do their thing before the worst happens?
DUI civil penalties could range from $5,000 first offense, to $20k for second and so on. Also write law such that auto owner jointly liable.
DUI offenses are, by nature, assaults - placing the public in fear of bodily harm. Should let interested entity/person contract to enforce.
Create a civil remedy for DUI offenses that can be enforced by the public residing in area where offense occurred. Award shared w/local gov.
Heard some jurisdictions may stop criminalizing first DUI offense. Not keen on that tho I understand present process not working. My idea-->
But, you couldn't give her the trademark bangs? I mean, will anyone know that it's supposed to be me? ;P
Got gifted w/ a mini-me doll complete w/ Louboutins & doll-size flute. Gurl, you know I hate it's perfect!

I'd more respect the series and her as an author if books had not been written in the age-old "girl waiting around for a boy" genre.
Why did she not write it that way originally? 'Twilight' characters swap genders in Stephenie Meyer's new rewrite…
That appears to be a pretty good example of how employers can benefit from the advice of an experienced employment lawyer. #gotpolicies? :)
Humor helps to make a point, but I tweet not in jest: Stink Over Perfume at Detroit Workplace Costs City $100,000.00…
This would be Exhibit A for a claimant... P.S. @Macys, I luv ya, but dang...get smart. Consumer consideration counts.
