Join Will Anthony, lawyer and Partner at Blank Rome LLP, in this
inaugural episode of BR @ Work to discuss the current landscape of
labor and employment law. The pandemic years have brought numerous
challenges to employers, and high on that list is employment
litigation. A number of things have led to the shakeup, from social
movements to job loss, to whether a job is performed remotely,
in-office, or hybrid. In this episode, Will gives an overview of
the field, a short history of how we got to this point, the factors
leading into employment litigation, and how you can perform a
high-level risk analysis for your company. Ultimately, Will says
that company culture is what determines success in creating a
positive workplace that retains employees and proactively prevents
litigation. “Now more than ever, employers need to let employees
know that they will be treated fairly, they will be compensated
fairly, they will be supported, they will be listened to, and that
management has empathy for all that they're going through as
employees and outside of the workplace,” says Will. Over the coming
episodes of BR @ Work, Will, his colleagues, and guests will dive
deeper into the shifting world of labor and employment law,
covering topics such as OSHA, class action lawsuits, pay equity,
systemic discrimination claims, and how leaders can create a
positive workplace that rises above these challenges. ️ Meet Your
