What a wild ride 2020 has been. Our offices are closed this week and our team is (hopefully) enjoying a well-deserved vacation. While most of our 2020 blogging has been Covid-19 related, and while much of our blogging does tend to revolve around legal updates, occasionally a “fun” employment topic makes its way onto the blog. For today’s post, I thought I’d pick out a few of my all-time (definitely non-Covid-19) favourite posts to revisit.
This blog attracted a lot of eyeballs – thank you Google Analytics! Dress codes are one of the sneaky ways that employers often still discriminate. I know it’s been awhile since we’ve all been to a Jack Astors or a Hooters, but you should know that legally the female waitresses should be allowed to dress exactly like the men and vice versa.
This was my first post of 2020. I just really really liked the title. Also, it reveals some of the weird gaps in our employment legislation, which I think suggests that society still wants employers to act like people, not just robots who follow the law to the letter. Which reminds me of another favourite post from 2019 – Fired by a robot!
This one is a little bit Covid applicable – but has implications for any remote workers. I like this post because it raises interesting questions about what should be a developing area of law and because SpringLaw is virtual.
Happy New Year everyone!
