In the second episode of our “Tech-Tuned Workplace” series, Jennifer Betts, Ruthie Goodboe, and Zeb Curtin (Senior Labor & Employment Lawyer and Team Lead at Cargill) discuss artificial intelligence in the workplace. They provide examples of how AI is currently affecting the workplace, potential future uses of AI in the workplace, and the legal implications for employers including the potential for bias.
In this follow-up to their podcast on nontraditional employees, Jana Baker and Jim Paul discuss the application of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to volunteers and student interns, including medical residents. The speakers also address the interplay between the educational institutions and placement sites.
This podcast, which we recorded at Ogletree Deakins’ national Workplace Strategies seminar, explores the multifaceted age composition of the workplace from Baby Boomers and Generation X to Millennials and Generation Z. Our speakers, Bill Grob (Shareholder, Tampa) and Tiffany Cox Stacy (Office Managing Shareholder, San Antonio), acknowledge the varying ways in which employees of different age ranges approach their jobs—with regard to a variety of factors such as adaptability, tech-savviness, communication and engagement styles, loyalty, work-life balance, and more—and what this means for employers that have multigenerational workforces. The speakers also discuss the benefits and challenges of having employees from multiple generations on a single team, especially given the prevalence of remote and hybrid workplaces.
In this installment of Multistate Monday, Dee Anna Hays, who is chair of Ogletree Deakins’ Multistate Advice and Counseling Practice Group, is joined by Phillip Russell, who is a member of the firm’s Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group and the host of the Dirty Steel-Toe Boots podcast series. Dee Anna and Phillip discuss the multistate compliance issues arising from the existence of 22 OSHA-approved state workplace safety and health programs. Our speakers discuss heat illness standards, reporting requirements, drug testing, workers’ compensation, and guns in the workplace.
