Most people now "like" the idea of following colleagues on social networking sites—a stark contrast from reported sentiment in previous years. More senior managers, however, still have qualms about making social connections with co-workers, a new study reveals. @SHRM #socialmedia #HR #emplaw

You might expect that in organizations where women and minorities are at the top, they’ll try to help others like them climb the organizational ladder. Yet, this popular belief is not supported by data. In fact, research suggests, it is women and nonwhites themselves who often impede the advancement of their own peers. @SciAm #race #gender #management #leadership

For years, employers have investigated complaints of discrimination and harassment on a confidential basis. In light of recent decisions by the NLRB, however, employers should abandon their practice of requesting confidentiality in every investigation and limit this request only to those investigations where confidentiality is “truly necessary” to protect against evidence destruction, witness endangerment or to prevent a cover up. Our podcast explains...#investigation #confidentiality #NLRB

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently affirmed the trial court verdict indicating that intentional discrimination was inferred by the overheard conversations reflecting a supervisor’s intention to get rid of an employee and her transfer just eight days after returning from pregnancy leave. The employee was also able to prevail on a constructive discharge claim because her breastfeeding accommodation was such that “any reasonable person” in her place “would have been compelled to resign.” Importantly, the circuit court also held that lactation qualified as a “medical condition” within the meaning of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA). #PDA #pregnancy #lactation #accommodation

On Tuesday, the Arizona Supreme Court issued a highly anticipated decision unanimously affirming the equal rights of same-sex parents in the state. The ruling will require Arizona to extend the same presumptions of parentage to same-sex and opposite-sex couples, ensuring that the state cannot use the pretext of biology to discriminate against gay residents. It is an important confirmation of Obergefell v. Hodges at a time when marriage equality is under increasing assault by both state and federal judges. @Slate
