Campus Sexual Assault

First, remember the old adage, "what you say can and will be used against you." Your child should not cooperate or try to talk his way out of it. He should assume that anything he tells anybody who works for the university could end up in the hands of a police officer and a prosecutor.

Your word versus hers: Dealing with accusations of campus sexual assault

In recent years, colleges and universities across the country have become hyper-vigilant about sexual assault on campus. These institutions don't want the lawsuits and damaging public-relations fallout of a sexual encounter gone wrong.

Supreme Court Provides New Clarity, Protection for Public Employee Whistleblowers

Supreme Court unanimously affirms the First Amendment protects public employees from workplace retaliation for providing testimony or participating in workplace investigations.

Non-Competes As A Condition Of Employment

The 21st century success of Michigan's new economy will depend on throwing off the shackles of 20th century thinking on employment non-compete agreements. In the highly skilled professions, alarmingly high numbers Michigan's technical and professional workers are subject to forced "non-compete" agreements as a condition of employment (as high as 50 percent on some sectors). This predominately includes highly skilled workers in the new economy that Michigan wants - and needs - to build. While some reports suggest the use of non-competes is actually on the rise [http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/09/business/noncompete-clauses-increasingly-pop-up-in-array-of-jobs.html?hpw&rref=business&_r=0]. Recent legal and business studies add to an increasing body of evidence showing how states that allow and enforce "non-competes" are at a competitive disadvantage in development of high-tech and highly skilled job sectors. Across the country, progressive states that want to attract and retain new business and high paying jobs are taking a hard look at the impact of non-competes.

Employment and the Affordable Care Act

The good news about the affordable care act is that millions more people will have access to affordable health care. But the bad news is....well, the bad news isn't so bad. This week media and some conservatives seized on a GAO report showing Americans will work less under the affordable care act. Some ACA critics attacked the report as proof the ACA is causing job loss. But the report actually estimates that people will work less because they will choose to supply less labor. Why? Because they will now have the choice to do so - without the threat of lost healthcare coverage. Another benefit described by Paul Krugman in a recent NY Times column - a reduced labor supply will actually lead to higher wages.

Affordable Care Act Expands Whistleblower Protections for Employees

For many years, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) - a division of the U.S. Department of Labor - has provided protections to employees by establishing programs, policies and procedures aimed at creating safe and healthy working conditions for all U.S. workers.

University of Michigan Human Resource and Administrative Jobs Saved...For the Moment

Some University of Michigan Human Resource and Financial Services workers can breathe a sigh of relief. At least for now. The University has announced that it will put consolidation plans on a temporary hold after an awkward roll out of the cost saving plan. The irony surely isn't lost by the affected HR professionals.

What To Say - and Not Say - When You're Fired

"What do I say about my last job?" 90% want to know the answer to this question. Unfortunately, there is no "one size fits all" answer. Sometimes I can spend a hour or more with a client just working on the the possible answers and the various implications. There are, however, some durable concepts that ought to be respected.
