For a while now, there’s been a lot of chatter about the NLRB’s take on social media and whether employees’ use of Facebook could be “protected concerted activity”. I’ve done many recaps including here and here. Now, for the first time, an administrative law...
Is the “Virtual Workplace” — where employees can telecommute from home or merely check e-mail via a smartphone — a dangerous place for employers? No. At least not any more so than the brick and mortar one. Sure there are risks to manage, but employers are used to managing...
Four years ago this month, the Connecticut Employment Law Blog was born. (You can view the very first entry about civil union discrimination here.) It has grown up a lot since then (and even went through an image makeover earlier this year), but I hope that I’ve maintained one thing...
The title of this post is, of course, a bit misleading. Any lawyer will tell you that each employment case you may have is unique and that any settlement must take into account the facts and circumstances of the particular case. All true. And, if your company is negotiating a settlement, you...

First, a warning: Today’s post will have little to do with employment law, but once you read it, I hope you can understand the significance of it. The people of Connecticut have suffered (and are continuing to suffer) greatly from Hurricane (and Tropical Storm) Irene. She left over HALF of...
When the ABA last visited Toronto in the 1990s for its annual meeting, cell phones and the Internet weren’t in heavy rotation. What a difference a decade makes. And, except for the mobile service providers who likely made thousands of dollars, it was a lot harder to connect than I...
With all the legislative developments in Connecticut over the last year or so, it’s tough to keep track of all of the changes that your company needs to consider to update your employee handbook and employment policies. Here’s a (non-exhaustive) list of some of the changes to consider...
