Show Notes

In this new podcast feature, recent cases and news from the world of Labor & Employment Law will be discussed.  In this episode:

  • Employee on call time - in Wesley v. Experian Information Solutions, IT employees brought claims for unpaid overtime for time they were required to be on-call to answer client questions.  
  • Rescinded job offer - in Goldfarb v. Solimine, the court considered a claim by an individual who quit a high paying job to accept another, only to have the offer withdrawn after he quit.
  • Reasonable accommodations - in Daniel v. Walmart the court considered what steps an employee has to take to request an accommodation.
  • Disability discrimination - in Baltz v. Ledstri Foods, the court considered the claim of an employee with good reviews who was terminated after a request for an accommodation; email exchanges between managers provided significant evidence in the case.
  • The CROWN Act - Connecticut has recently passed a CROWN Act (“Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural hair”) to prohibit discrimination based on ethnic hairstyles and it is not alone.  Several states have passed such laws in the past few years and many more are under consideration.
