The changing economy makes it more important than ever for employers and employees to know their legal rights and responsibilities. Layoffs, furloughs, severance packages---there are laws about all of these things. Attorney and employment law blogger Daniel Schwartz returns to the show today to talk with us about important laws governing the workplace in these uncertain times.
We'll also talk about how social media is changing the corporate landscape and how companies can come up with sensible guidelines for workplace use, rules that respect privacy and rely on personal responsibility.
