Welcome to Employment Law This Week®! Subscribe to our channel for new episodes every Monday! (1) DOL Vacancies Slowing Trump's Agenda - http://bit.ly/2w58UDN Our top story: Vacancies at the Department of Labor (“DOL”) are delaying policy changes under the new administration. Nearly half of the leadership positions at the DOL are still vacant, and Labor Secretary Acosta was not confirmed until late April. Neither the Wage Hour Division nor OSHA has a permanent Administrator. The DOL has taken some action, like rescinding guidance on misclassification of employees as independent contractors, but little progress has been made toward new overtime regulations or expanded use of the E-Verify system. Paul DeCamp is a former Administrator of the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division and current Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green. Here, he provides some context on the delays: (2) NLRB Okays Restriction on Employee Use of Customer Information - http://bit.ly/2w5jECa Employers can restrict employee access to, and use of, confidential customer information, the NLRB says. An administrative law judge found that some employer policies at a national retailer violated the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”). The retailer partially appealed, arguing that the policies protected customer information like social security and credit card numbers. Reversing the administrative law judge’s decision, the NLRB found that these policies did not violate the Act, in part because the rules only applied to confidential information obtained from the employer systems. The Board held that employee access to and use of such data falls outside the protection of the NLRA. For more, click here: http://www.ebglaw.com/eltw85-mm2 (3) Weingarten Rights Apply Only to Mandatory Meetings - http://bit.ly/2wOcFOx The NLRB’s Weingarten doctrine applies only to compulsory meetings. Two nurses at a Kansas hospital were accused of unprofessional conduct and invited to attend an optional peer-review committee meeting on the matter. The nurses filed an unfair labor practice charge after the hospital declined their request that union representatives join them at the meeting. The D.C. Circuit found that the Weingarten rule, which grants union-represented employees the right to have union representation at meetings that may result in discipline, does not apply to voluntary meetings, even those that may result in discipline. For more, click here: http://www.ebglaw.com/eltw85-mm (4) EEOC’s Authority Not Limited by Charging Party’s Court Case - http://bit.ly/2wvxbno The Seventh Circuit finds that the EEOC’s authority is not limited by the actions of a charging party. Two former railroad employees filed a charge of racial discrimination with the EEOC, against their employer. The agency issued a right-to-sue letter in 2012, which would ordinarily close the cases. A federal judge dismissed the employees’ private lawsuit, but the EEOC continued its investigation on a company-wide basis. The railroad challenged the agency’s authority to do so. The Seventh Circuit held that Title VII does not expressly or implicitly limit the EEOC’s investigatory authority, even after the dismissal of a charging party’s lawsuit. (5) Tip of the Week - http://bit.ly/2wNZ7Tt Kirsty Devine, Head of US HR and Global Projects for the Financial Times, offers some advice on best practices for HR department transformation: “First of all, you need to set your vision. So what does the future look like? What are you wanting to achieve? What benefits will this bring if you achieve this transformation? It's really important that you have that in mind as you go through the transformation, because that means that you can help the team to envision where they're going to. Secondly, you need to do research. This is really important to do at the outset, because it gives you a really clear picture as to what's happening today. It's really important as you go through the transformation that you don't transform in isolation. So make sure that you're engaging business stakeholders who might have an interest in your transformation. In this way, when you deliver your transformation, you'll have buy-in to what you're trying to achieve.” Visit http://www.EmploymentLawThisWeek.com.

Subscribe to stay up to date with the latest videos ► https://www.sbry.co/suBiH Episode 43 – This is How the Bull Market Ends Porter gives one last lesson on the big mistake Warren Buffett is making that could change Berkshire Hathaway forever. Buck breaks down the culture of the FBI and its influence on “Russiagate,” and Porter wonders why successful money managers and business people are often the target of politicians, while real criminals like those behind the 2008-2009 financial crisis just walk away. Buck and Porter welcome Erez Kalir, CEO and co-founder of Stansberry Asset Management. Porter and Erez discuss four specific “mile markers” to watch for that will signal the end of the current bull run in stocks. Erez talks about a meeting with Peter Thiel where the famous venture capitalist reveals what he’s doing with his bitcoin investment. What’s the one stock you would buy if it was the only one you could hold forever? Buck gives his account of the Facebook data breach that erased over $35 billion in investor capital in one day. Is the stock a buy or sell? Porter weighs in. A listener sends in a question about student debt forgiveness and what it would mean to Porter’s American Jubilee prediction.

Buck explains the schism between field agents and analysts in the Bureau, and the department we should be watching that’s “just to the right of Karl Marx.” 13:45 Porter says there’s no such thing as a predatory loan – no matter how sympathetic the “victims.” “When I started my business, I’d have been grateful for any predatory loan. (laughs)” 18:30 Before there was Satoshi Nakamoto, there was Milken – the man whose special class of junk bonds were like the Bitcoin of his day. Porter tells the story of why Rudy Giuliani couldn’t let his creation stand and brought the full force of his office down on Milken. 21:07 What do you have to do to earn 370 years of prison time? Buck explains the cloud that’s under Paul Manafort, and the charges he’s facing that carry a far more severe penalty than murder. 24:42 Buck introduces this week’s podcast guest Erez Kalir, who prior to launching Stansberry Asset Management co-founded and led Sabretooth Capital, with $1 billion in assets under management. 25:50 Erez shares his thoughts on the end of this bull market, and why the increase in volatility we’ve seen in 2018 so far is a warning sign. 28:50 Porter gets Erez’s take on the four developments he sees as being the most telling in the stock market today, from the decline of cryptos to the death of Toys R Us. 34:57 Porter explains the art of capital structure, and what it means to position your money based on your convictions. Hint: It goes way beyond just buying equities. 45:08 What to make of the collapse of the speculative bubble in cryptocurrencies – an asset class that didn’t even exist in the last bull market? Porter shares the dampening effect this could have on the stock market. “You’re unlikely to see stocks go up another 20%.” 57:09 Porter asks Erez to indulge in a mental exercise: You can only by one stock, so where do you choose to put all your wealth? “I’m pretty sure my great, great grandkids are going to be using salt.” 1:01:49 Buck describes the scandal surrounding Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, the insidious way they siphoned off people’s person information to a third party, and why it didn’t make a splash in 2012 when the Obama re-elect team openly bragged about this.

The Justice Department announced today that it found reasonable cause to believe that the Baltimore City Police Department (BPD) engages in a pattern or practice of conduct that violates the First and Fourth Amendments of the Constitution as well as federal anti-discrimination laws. BPD makes stops, searches and arrests without the required justification; uses enforcement strategies that unlawfully subject African Americans to disproportionate rates of stops, searches and arrests; uses excessive force; and retaliates against individuals for their constitutionally-protected expression. The pattern or practice results from systemic deficiencies that have persisted within BPD for many years and has exacerbated community distrust of the police, particularly in the African-American community. The city and the department have also entered into an agreement in principle to work together, with community input, to create a federal court-enforceable consent decree addressing the deficiencies found during the investigation.

For more on this event, visit: https://bit.ly/2yhL1IQ For more on the Georgetown Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life: https://catholicsocialthought.georgetown.edu/ September 17, 2018 | This is a time of crisis for the Catholic Church. The horrific Pennsylvania grand jury report on clerical sexual abuse and revelations about Cardinal McCarrick have led to outrage and calls for action. Appalled at the abuse of vulnerable children and young people and the sin, injustice, abuse of power, and broken trust at the heart of this crisis, Catholics seek accountability, reform, and a path forward. Young people are at the heart of this crisis, yet their voices are too often unheard. Young Catholics should be central to efforts at renewal. Because of this, Pope Francis’ decision to call a global “Synod on Young People and the Faith” this coming October in Rome is more important than ever. As the inaugural event of this year’s Salt and Light Gatherings, Georgetown University invited young Catholic professionals to a discussion on this crisis and responses to it, which featured four young leaders: a Catholic opinion columnist at the Washington Post who has raised challenging questions in the wake of the crisis; a leader in D.C.’s Catholic community who will attend the synod; a leading Rome-based journalist covering Pope Francis and the Vatican; and an accomplished writer who has edited a collection of stories of those hurt by the Church. Kim Daniels, associate director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, moderated the conversation.

The abused include boys and girls, some as young as 3 years old, with the majority between the ages of 11 and 14. The accusations began to receive isolated, sporadic publicity from the late 1980s. Many of these involved cases in which a figure was accused of decades of abuse; such allegations were frequently made by adults or older youths years after the abuse occurred. Cases have also been brought against members of the Catholic hierarchy who covered up sex abuse allegations and moved abusive priests to other parishes, where abuse continued.By the 1990s, the cases began to receive significant media and public attention in some countries, especially in Canada, the United States, Australia and, through a series of television documentaries such as Suffer The Children (UTV, 1994), Ireland. A critical investigation by The Boston Globe in 2002 led to widespread media coverage of the issue in the United States, later dramatized in Tom McCarthy's film Spotlight. Over the last decade, widespread abuse has been exposed in Europe, Australia, Chile, and the USA. From 2001 to 2010 the Holy See, the central governing body of the Catholic Church, considered sex abuse allegations involving about 3,000 priests dating back fifty years, reflecting worldwide patterns of long-term abuse as well as the Church hierarchy's pattern of regularly covering up reports of abuse. Diocesan officials and academics knowledgeable about the Roman Catholic Church say that sexual abuse by clergy is generally not discussed, and thus is difficult to measure. Members of the Church's hierarchy have argued that media coverage was excessive and disproportionate, and that such abuse also takes place in other religions and institutions, a stance that dismayed critics who saw it as a device to avoid resolving the abuse problem within the Church.In a 2001 apology, John Paul II called sexual abuse within the Church "a profound contradiction of the teaching and witness of Jesus Christ". Benedict XVI apologised, met with victims, and spoke of his "shame" at the evil of abuse, calling for perpetrators to be brought to justice, and denouncing mishandling by church authorities. In 2018, Pope Francis began by accusing victims of fabricating allegations, but by April was apologizing for his "tragic error" and by August was expressing "shame and sorrow" for the tragic history, without, however, introducing concrete measures either to prosecute abusers or to help victims.

Ukrayina; Ukrainian pronunciation: [ukrɑˈjinɑ]), sometimes called the Ukraine, is a country in Eastern Europe. Excluding Crimea, Ukraine has a population of about 42.5 million, making it the 32nd most populous country in the world. Its capital and largest city is Kiev. Ukrainian is the official language and its alphabet is Cyrillic. The dominant religions in the country are Eastern Orthodoxy and Greek Catholicism. Ukraine is currently in a territorial dispute with Russia over the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia annexed in 2014. Including Crimea, Ukraine has an area of 603,628 km2 (233,062 sq mi), making it the largest country entirely within Europe and the 46th largest country in the world. The territory of modern Ukraine has been inhabited since 32,000 BC. During the Middle Ages, the area was a key centre of East Slavic culture, with the powerful state of Kievan Rus' forming the basis of Ukrainian identity. Following its fragmentation in the 13th century, the territory was contested, ruled and divided by a variety of powers, including Lithuania, Poland, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Russia. A Cossack republic emerged and prospered during the 17th and 18th centuries, but its territory was eventually split between Poland and the Russian Empire, and finally merged fully into the Russian-dominated Soviet Union in the late 1940s as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. In 1991 Ukraine gained its independence from the Soviet Union in the aftermath of its dissolution at the end of the Cold War. Before its independence, Ukraine was typically referred to in English as "The Ukraine", but most sources have since moved to drop "the" from the name of Ukraine in all uses.Following its independence, Ukraine declared itself a neutral state; it formed a limited military partnership with Russia and other CIS countries while also establishing a partnership with NATO in 1994. In 2013, after the government of President Viktor Yanukovych had decided to suspend the Ukraine-European Union Association Agreement and seek closer economic ties with Russia, a several-months-long wave of demonstrations and protests known as the Euromaidan began, which later escalated into the 2014 Ukrainian revolution that led to the overthrow of Yanukovych and the establishment of a new government. These events formed the background for the annexation of Crimea by Russia in March 2014, and the War in Donbass in April 2014. On 1 January 2016, Ukraine applied the economic component of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area with the European Union.Ukraine is a developing country and ranks 84th on the Human Development Index. As of 2018, Ukraine has the lowest personal income and the second lowest GDP per capita in Europe. It also suffers from a very high poverty rate and severe corruption. However, because of its extensive fertile farmlands, Ukraine is one of the world's largest grain exporters. Ukraine also maintains the second-largest military in Europe after that of Russia. The country is home to a multi-ethnic population, 77.8 percent of whom are Ukrainians, followed by a very large Russian minority, as well as Georgians, Romanians, Belarusians, Crimean Tatars, Jews, Bulgarians and Hungarians. Ukraine is a unitary republic under a semi-presidential system with separate powers: legislative, executive and judicial branches. The country is a member of the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the OSCE, the GUAM organization, and one of the founding states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

She has the distinction of being its first justice of Hispanic descent and the first Latina.Sotomayor was born in The Bronx, New York City, to Puerto Rican-born parents. Her father died when she was nine, and she was subsequently raised by her mother. Sotomayor graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University in 1976 and received her J.D. from Yale Law School in 1979, where she was an editor at the Yale Law Journal. She worked as an assistant district attorney in New York for four-and-a-half years before entering private practice in 1984. She played an active role on the boards of directors for the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, the State of New York Mortgage Agency, and the New York City Campaign Finance Board. Sotomayor was nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by President George H. W. Bush in 1991; confirmation followed in 1992. In 1997, she was nominated by President Bill Clinton to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Her nomination was slowed by the Republican majority in the United States Senate, but she was eventually confirmed in 1998. On the Second Circuit, Sotomayor heard appeals in more than 3,000 cases and wrote about 380 opinions. Sotomayor has taught at the New York University School of Law and Columbia Law School. In May 2009, President Barack Obama nominated Sotomayor to the Supreme Court following the retirement of Justice David Souter. Her nomination was confirmed by the Senate in August 2009 by a vote of 68–31. While on the court, Sotomayor has supported the informal liberal bloc of justices when they divide along the commonly perceived ideological lines. During her tenure on the Supreme Court, Sotomayor has been identified with concern for the rights of defendants, calls for reform of the criminal justice system, and making impassioned dissents on issues of race, gender and ethnic identity, including Schuette v. BAMN, Utah v. Strieff, and Trump v. Hawaii.

Joseph Raymond "Joe" McCarthy was an American politician who served as a Republican U.S. Senator from the state of Wisconsin from 1947 until his death in 1957. Beginning in 1950, McCarthy became the most visible public face of a period in which Cold War tensions fueled fears of widespread Communist subversion. He was noted for making claims that there were large numbers of Communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers inside the United States federal government and elsewhere. Ultimately, his tactics and inability to substantiate his claims led him to be censured by the United States Senate. This video targeted to blind users.

Beginning in 1950, McCarthy became the most visible public face of a period in the United States in which Cold War tensions fueled fears of widespread Communist subversion. He is known for alleging that numerous Communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers had infiltrated the United States federal government, universities, film industry, and elsewhere. Ultimately, the smear tactics that he used led him to be censured by the U.S. Senate. The term "McCarthyism", coined in 1950 in reference to McCarthy's practices, was soon applied to similar anti-communist activities. Today, the term is used in reference to what are considered demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as public attacks on the character or patriotism of political opponents.Born in Grand Chute, Wisconsin, McCarthy commissioned in to the Marine Corps in 1942, where he served as an intelligence briefing officer for a dive bomber squadron. Following the end of World War II, he attained the rank of major. He volunteered to fly twelve combat missions as a gunner-observer, acquiring the nickname "Tail-Gunner Joe". Some of his claims of heroism were later shown to be exaggerated or falsified, leading many of his critics to use "Tail-Gunner Joe" as a term of mockery. McCarthy successfully ran for the U.S. Senate in 1946, defeating Robert M. La Follette Jr. After three largely undistinguished years in the Senate, McCarthy rose suddenly to national fame in February 1950 when he asserted in a speech that he had a list of "members of the Communist Party and members of a spy ring" who were employed in the State Department. In succeeding years after his 1950 speech, McCarthy made additional accusations of Communist infiltration into the State Department, the administration of President Harry S. Truman, the Voice of America, and the U.S. Army. He also used various charges of communism, communist sympathies, disloyalty, or sex crimes to attack a number of politicians and other individuals inside and outside of government. This included a concurrent "Lavender Scare" against suspected homosexuals (as homosexuality was prohibited by law at the time, it was also perceived to increase a person's risk for blackmail). Former U.S. Senator Alan K. Simpson has written, "The so-called 'Red Scare' has been the main focus of most historians of that period of time." With the highly publicized Army–McCarthy hearings of 1954, and following the suicide of Wyoming Senator Lester C. Hunt that same year, McCarthy's support and popularity faded. On December 2, 1954, the Senate voted to censure Senator McCarthy by a vote of 67–22, making him one of the few senators ever to be disciplined in this fashion. He continued to speak against communism and socialism until his death at the age of 48 at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland on May 2, 1957. His death c ...

Jorge Mario Pedro Vargas Llosa, 1st Marquis of Vargas Llosa is a Peruvian writer, politician, journalist, essayist, college professor, and recipient of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature. Vargas Llosa is one of Latin America's most significant novelists and essayists, and one of the leading writers of his generation. Some critics consider him to have had a larger international impact and worldwide audience than any other writer of the Latin American Boom. Upon announcing the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Swedish Academy said it had been given to Vargas Llosa "for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt, and defeat". Vargas Llosa rose to fame in the 1960s with novels such as The Time of the Hero, The Green House, and the monumental Conversation in the Cathedral. He writes prolifically across an array of literary genres, including literary criticism and journalism. His novels include comedies, murder mysteries, historical novels, and political thrillers.

Imagine receiving a phone call one day from a person hired to audit your local prison. The auditor explains that she is assessing the facility’s efforts to prevent and respond to sexual abuse, and she wants to know about your work delivering services to prisoners there. This is not as far-fetched of a scenario as it may seem. Every year, detention facilities nationwide are audited on their compliance with national Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards — including its requirement of providing inmate access to outside rape crisis services. A new JDI webinar, Shining a Light Behind Bars, will explain the PREA auditing process and will review the type of information that advocates are likely to be asked to provide. The webinar will also show advocates how they can participate meaningfully in the audits without compromising their relationships with facilities or, their clients’ confidentiality. The 90-minute webinar is for staff at rape crisis centers and other victim services agencies who want to work with survivors of sexual abuse in detention. No other prior knowledge is needed. This series of webinars is being supported by the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women.

A funny and touching account of the imaginative Mr. Polly who, bored and trapped in his conventional life, makes a U-turn –- and changes everything. H.G. Wells’ early life as the son of a semi-insolvent shopkeeper and as a draper’s apprentice fueled his novels of the lower middle class: The Wheels of Chance (1896), Kipps (1905), and The History of Mr. Polly (1910). These works evoke the desperation of apprentices, clerks, and small traders in their monotonous toil behind shop counters. And, like Mr. Polly, his protagonists make a break from their mundane lives with more or less success. H. G. Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific writer in history, general and science fiction, and politics. He was a lifelong socialist. (Summary by Adrian Praetzellis) The History of Mr. Polly H. G.
