The July issue of our Section’s Labor & Employment Law Review leads off with an MCLE article by Kelly Scott and Pooja Nair entitled “Wear a Mask, Not a Blindfold: Returning to Work Pos-Pandemic.” The article discusses some of the more important issues for California employers to review as we move forward in reopening our economy. The authors are partners at Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP, where they contribute to the ECJ Blog on labor and employment topics, including COVID-19.
In addition to the above, the issue features our usual case updates. In columnist Anthony Oncidi’s absence, we thank guest columnist Andrew Friedman for authoring the California Employment Law Notes for this issue. Leonard Sansanowicz authors the Wage and Hour Case Notes. Jeff Boseley and Tyler Maffia write the NLRA Case Notes. Kerianne Steele and Alejandro Delgado co-author the Public Sector Case Notes. Alan Berkowitz writes the Mediation Tips and Arbitration Tips column. CYLA Liaison Janine Braxton continues to contribute a column on Fresh Perspectives, this time on the legislative history and framework of labor and employment law. Phyllis Cheng authors her column on Cases Pending before the California Supreme Court. An updated calendar of upcoming educational programs is also included.
Finally, Section Chair Deborah Maddux provides perspectives on the use of artificial intelligence in the workplace.
