The best way to respond to allegations of harassment or bullying

What do you do when a high-profile allegation of sexual harassment or bullying is made against your organization? I’m not talking about a fairly minor complaint, but a situation that has — or will — become public and has the potential to produce widespread embarrassment for the company and may impact morale and call your corporate values into question.

Many workers unknowingly give up rights such as statutory holidays, overtime pay, and notice of termination/severance pay, and many organizations unknowingly […]


There is no ‘rule of thumb’ for reasonable notice

I’ve said if before, and I will say it again: There is no “rule of thumb” for determining how much notice an employee is entitled to upon termination. It is not one month of notice per year of service, or any other simple calculation you may have heard to determine reasonable notice. The courts have made it clear every case is […]
