When loose lips sink defense ships
“So, what is is, your job or your daughter?” That one question cost an employer summary judgment in its employee’s associational disability discrimination case, in Manon v. 878 Education, LLC (S.D.N.Y. 3/4/15) [pdf] . The employee in question, a school rece...

Here's a list of Joan Jett's 11 greatest songs as chosen by the folks at Cleveland.com. Most of these songs will be performed on Saturday, April 11th at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by Strongsville's very own Joan Jett group that rocked the Music Box in January!

Here's a clip of the classic song 'Bad Reputation' from Strongsville SoR's 'The Music of Joan Jett' show at the Music Box Supper Club last weekend. Julia, Bennett, Nicole, Sophia, and Norah all take turns at lead vocals for this raucous version!

Strongsville School of Rock electrified the stage of The Music Box Supper Club for our San Francisco Earthquake and The Music of Joan Jett shows yesterday. The two bands played in front of an enthusiastic and packed house. You'll get one more chance to see the shows on Saturday, January 24th. The Music of Joan Jett begins at 1pm and the San Francisco show begins at 2pm- once again, at the Music Box.  C'mon up to see the shows!

The employees who lunch don't need to be paid
Yesterday, the 6th upheld the dismissal of an FLSA collective action, in which a group of employees had alleged that their employer failed to pay them for time spent working during their lunch breaks. Before we discuss how the employer won this case, I thin...

BREAKING: NLRB Office of General Counsel issues report on employer rules
Today, the NLRB Office of General Counsel issued its report on employer handbook rules under section 7 of the NLRA. It's a meaty 30-page report that will take some time to digest. I'll have my thoughts and analysis early next week. In the meantime, you can ...

Why your control employees must care about employment laws
Last week I was asked if managers and supervisors have any liability for their own acts of discrimination or other unlawful activities. Like most things in the law, the answer is, “It depends” on the law about which you are concerned. If it’s wage and hour ...

When OSHA arrives, whatever the reason, your personnel needs to know that the first call should be to your employment lawyer. Unless the investigator has a search warrant or subpoena, he or she has no right to enter your business, no matter what he or she says to bully through your door.

OSHA is not your friend. It is not there to give you an atta-boy on workplace safety. It is there to find violations and levy fines to make money for OSHA. This is not cynicism; this is fact. And once it is through your door, everything becomes fair game, no matter the reason for the investigation.

The new Spring show season for the Strongsville SoR kicked off last night with the inaugural rehearsal for the Warped Tour. Captain Ed Sotelo began the proceedings with 'Russian Roulette' by Tsunami Bomb and 'Prosthetic Head' by Green Day. From the start, the group jumped right in and began hammering the songs out. This is gonna be a heckuva show!   

The rehearsals for Deep Purple Vs. Aerosmith starts on Saturday at noon. Enrollment is still open for both shows.

Story

A provider of proactive employment law services to solve businesses's workforce problems.
Introduction

Jon Hyman—a partner at Cleveland’s Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis—provides proactive and results-driven solutions to employers’ workforce problems. Jon concentrates his practice in the representation of companies in employment disputes. His recent victories include defeating certification of a wage and hour class action, obtaining summary judgment in a discrimination and retaliation lawsuit, and obtaining a jury verdict in a theft of trade secrets case. He also serves as an “outside in-house counsel” for businesses that lack an in-house labor & employment attorney, drafting policies and handbooks, auditing HR practices and procedures, and advising companies on day-to-day HR issues.

Jon is the author of the nationally recognized and award winning Ohio Employer’s Law Blog, which the ABA Journal commended as one of the top 100 legal blogs five years running, and which LexisNexis named as one of the top 25 Labor & Employment Blogs

Two prominent HR websites also feature Jon as a blogger—Workforce.com and Business Management Daily. Additionally, Jon has joined the editorial advisory board of Workforce Magazine, for which he writes a monthly column.

Jon's most recent book, The Employer Bill of Rights: A Manager’s Guide to Workplace Law, is a practical handbook designed to help business owners and managers navigate the ever-changing maze of labor and employment laws, rules, and regulations. Jon also parlayed his experience as an early adopter of social media to edit and co-author the book Think Before You Click: Strategies for Managing Social Media in the Workplace

Jon is also an in-demand national speaker on employment law and social media issues. Additionally, he serves as an employment law resource for publications such as the Wall Street Journal, MSNBC.com, Business Insurance Magazine, Crain’s Cleveland Business, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He also appeared as a guest on WCPN’s The Sound of Ideas, discussing work place social media issues. You can listen to a recording at www.ideastream.org/soi/entry/42863.

Jon is also a Super Lawyers Ohio Rising Star in Employment Law six out of the last seven years.

Jon also appeared on a November 1999 episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, but sadly lacked the fastest fingers.
