Partner Jon Hyman Interviewed Extensively This Week on Employment Issues

Partner Jon Hyman has been busy. Recently, he was interviewed by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cleveland Jewish News, and NPR.

Plain Dealer reporter Olivera Perkins quoted Hyman as the lone voice of management in an exposé on “wage theft” by Ohio employers.

People share nearly every aspect of their personal lives online.

Hyman spoke to the Cleveland Jewish News (Legal Affairs, 4/26) about what this means for your workplace and the social media policy you should have. Read the article here.

Last week, the United States made history by unanimously changing its rules to permit Senator (and new mom) Tammy Duckworth to bring her newborn onto the Senate floor while she cast votes. Hyman guested on Los Angles public radio station KPCC’s AirTalk and spoke with Libby Denkmann about what this means for the future of parental leave laws in America, and why we should be ashamed that countries like Iran and Afghanistan do more for their working moms than we do.
