Fresh "Justice" from Memphis Morning News
"It is Alabama's Morning news. I'm JT and coming up here in just about 25 minutes or so we'll speak with the almost head football coach Lane Kiffin about the decision that the Supreme Court made yesterday and their ruling An education related benefits. Okay, this is not about paying players. Thousands of dollars are giving them free cars or, you know free shopping experiences at their favorite clothing store. This is about education related benefits. Yes, And it's a big blow to the N C. Double A and I think, yes, along with some other people that this does open the doors. More benefits for players that are non educational Rita. But first of all, this includes free laptops, musical instruments, lab equipment or compensation for internships. And this was not even a close call. Not even close 9 to 0 ruling unanimous and affirmed the lower coats court's rulings against the N C. Double a now the lower court rulings. Said that this governing body for college sports violated antitrust laws by putting caps on education related gifts and benefits for student athletes. Justice Kavanaugh offered a blistering critique of the N C double, he says the N C double. He is not above the law, the N C double a couches its arguments for not paying student athletes. An innocuous labels, But the labels cannot disguise the reality. The N C double A s business model. Would be flatly illegal in almost any other industry in America. So therefore This is not going to start, you know, immediately, but it certainly opens up the doors. For the athletes to benefit more. Uh, But its education related So you know, I'm good with this decision myself. I think this does change the landscape for the N C. Double A and it doesn't cut them off at the knees as far as the power over the conferences. But pretty much. Let's just call it the power. Five conferences have been the tail wagging the dog when it comes to the N C double A and, uh You know the benefits for education related perks. I'm good with this. It does not deal with the issue of once again, giving college players a chance to profit off their name like video games or their likeness and That's a completely separate issue. Although Starting very shortly here July 1st. Alabama's new law allows college players to financially benefit from their name and their image and likeness, and a lot of other states have approved similar laws in all of this, so What are your thoughts on this? Do you think that this opens the door for potential problems that will change college sports into professional sports and reflect what the end the you know the National Football League is doing is I don't think we're going to start seeing million dollar contracts for college players. Um But should the players benefit financially whether it's educational related materials or personal related materials? Former University of Miami Hurricanes football player Jeremy Lewis says it's great for athletes to get up so early and started working. David You got that cut? Mm. Okay, we'll get to that cut. You find it? Go.
Professor John McWhorter Explains Why 'You Are Not Racist to Criticize Critical Race Theory'
"And the headline of his piece on his own site. As you're not a racist to criticise critical race theory dismissed those pretending that if you don't like what's happening to our schools, you're a jingoistic moron who doesn't want kids to learn about racism. And it's It's a long article and in the article He points out, and he calls the elites the Allex. E. L. E. C. T s Says the elects commonly insist that critics of CRT would feel differently if they read actual foundational articles about it. But the issue is what is being done in CRTs name? Not what some articles contained decades ago. Early writings by people like Regina Austin, Richard Delgado, Kimberly Crenshaw, who you'll all learn about in American Marxism. Simply hard leftist legal analyses, proposing a revised conception of justice that takes suppression into account, including a collective sense of subordinate group identity. These are hardly calls to turn schools in the mouse reeducation camps. Fostering star chambers and struggle sessions. Actually, they kind of do do that, But let's go on. However, this indeed is what is happening to educational institutions across the country. Moreover, it's no tort to call it CRT in shorthand when these developments are descended from its teachings. And they're architects openly build themselves as following the tenants of critical race theory. In language terms evolving quickly Witness of late how this has happened with the cancel culture and even woke to insist that CRT must be properly referred only to the contents of obscure law review articles from decades ago. Is a debate team stunt, not serious engagement with a dynamic and distressing reality. It is a debate team stunt. And that is exactly what Chuck Todd is all about. Here's a debate team person who is filled with stunts.
High court sides with ex-athletes in NCAA compensation case
"The Supreme Court decided unanimously the NC double a cannot enforce rules limiting education related benefits that colleges offer to student athletes the case doesn't decide whether students can be paid salaries but justice Brett Kavanaugh argued the issue of compensating athletes could fall under anti trust laws that management the schools may be exploiting labor the student athlete Gabe Feldman is a law professor at Tulane University it's only a matter of time before another lawsuit was filed that asked for the whole system to be blown up NC double a president mark Emmert is not ready to move to pay college athletes the ruling goes to great lengths to point out that that authority still resides within the association's purview the NC double a argued that a ruling for the athletes could lead to a blurring of the line between college and professional sports at Donahue Washington
Arizona State Rep. Jake Hoffman Says We Need People to Wake up in 2022
"A state income tax. The state has 4% unemployment. Everybody and their mother and their cousin Joey are moving down here. The place is flourishing. You can't even buy a darn house down here. You put a house on the market seven seconds later into house sells for twice the asking, All right. I'm obviously exaggerating a little bit. You can't find a car anywhere in South Florida because he caught me so hot. Everything sold out the place is booming. We Don't have a state income tax. How is it in a state like Arizona? These guys are getting away with this. How? How do they constantly get voted back into office, pushing this crap that they're entitled somehow to Arizona in state money. Look, we need more people to wake up. I mean, that's something you talk about all the time is we've got to wake our neighbors up. We've got to get people off the couch and into the game, And that's something that we need here. I think, Look, they're going to have a heck of a time. Come 2022. Because they have taken over these last two weeks. They've taken a ton of heat from the grassroots and everyday people, Independence Republicans, even the blue Dog Democrat. If you know the few that still exists, they've been taking a beating from those people. Now I have heard justice more. Morning within the last hour and a half that there is a rumor that there's a deal. And so that means that this week is going to be when the rubber meets the road with regards to the this historic tax cuts that we have the opportunity to do. We're gonna find out Do me a favor Guns. Do me a favor. We're talking to state wrap Jake Hoffman from the great State of Arizona. I need a favor. You need to keep me updated on this rumor because if we can't in places like Arizona Arizona. If we can't get Republicans to coalesce behind economic freedom, sound budgeting, economic prosperity and tax cuts, then this I'm sorry, but the movement is going to fall apart. We're not conserving anything. I'm really sorry, Jake. I got to run. I
Supreme Court Unanimously Rules Against NCAA in Athlete Compensation Case
"Started the program today. Talking about the Landmark ruling by the supreme court in the ncwa Sports case it was actually brought by some student athletes who played college football current and former student athletes. The majority was written by gorsuch and the concurring and probably more inflammatory opinion from justice. Cavenaugh our supreme court expert professor josh blackman in south texas college of law is our guest professor. First of all did this ruling surprise. You know it didn't The argument by the ncaa is pretty extreme for more than one hundred years. They've been employing student athletes. they're paying them and they insist that no they're not actually employees. They are just athletes. Who happen to play a weapon. Go to class occasionally and it's always been a little tough to understand. They make billions of dollars off their licensing and tv deals and merchandising and the students get up guest So this was not a terribly surprising. Ruling could the nc double a. Have made a better argument. It sounded like you thought maybe their argument was not so strategic. I mean weren't they really trying to say. Hey when we win this when we want to shut everything down. Wasn't this an all or nothing. And isn't that what they're used to getting away with one hundred years is. Hey we're the nc double a. We we run college sports and you love them you know. I think that they were trying to win. Everything Their entire model works on treating student athletes as the special types of people. Who don't get any sort of compensation one to chip away at that exterior. And you recognize that these people are generating revenue and they should be compensated. Accordingly entire amateur model falls

The court said that the violated antitrust laws when it limited the amount students could receive for musical instruments, scientific equipment, postgraduate scholarships, tutoring Academic awards and paid internships. Writing for the court Justice Neil Gorsuch said U. S District Judge Claudia Wilken was correct in dismissing the organization's argument that antitrust law doesn't apply. Her decision, he said, was based on quote an exhausted factual record, a thoughtful legal analysis consistent with established antitrust principles and a healthy dose of judicial humility, Close quote. In a concurring opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh said that the Ah and its member colleagues are quote suppressing the pay of student athletes who collectively generate billions of dollars in revenues for colleges every year. Those enormous sums of money flow to seemingly everyone except the student athlete, close quote.

Cleveland Wants 'Climate Justice.' Can the Biden Administration Help?
"The fight against climate change might be going in a new direction with the biden administration. Top officials say that it is also a campaign for economic and racial equity. Npr's dan charles has been looking into what this means in practice. Hi dan thanks for being here. It's good to be here okay. So there's this idea now of attacking two things at once. Climate change and also social inequity. How do you do that. Well that is what. I wanted to know. And i got some interesting answers. No l. in cleveland. Why cleveland well. Couple of reasons i. It is one of the poorest cities in america it is also one of the city's that's created what it calls a climate action plan and a few years ago officials in cleveland decided to rewrite that plan with equity in mind which sounds like what the biden administration is promising. Cleveland was kind of writing the blueprint for this and they started with conversations in low income neighborhoods and black neighborhoods. Which is kind of new. Kimberly foreman who's executive director of a group in cleveland called environmental health. Watch says the debate about environmental policy. Climate policy has often been disconnected from those communities the little elitist or heavily focused on technology. Which is not getting down to. The grassroots are getting down to the people who are most impacted. The city set up a bunch of community meetings asking people. What are you concerned about in your neighborhood. And i would imagine that some of the things that people are concerned about had absolutely nothing to do with climate change. Yes at first glance at least so for instance. They went to a neighborhood called. And one of the people who showed up was cindy mumford. And when i went to the meeting they really gave. It wasn't one of those. Just sit down things when you're just listening to someone present. What was ms mumford concerned about in her neighborhood. Explain that she took me on a little walking tour in the rain. She and her neighbor across the street. Debra lewis who grew up in it is a community that was devastated by what i will can only call tenement housing.

The Goal of the American Marxist Is to Destroy the Current Society
"Depression in this country. The Democrats know it. Keep something in mind. The influence of the American Marxist on the Democrat Party is significant. And what is their goal, ultimately, to destroy the existing society, replace it with some kind of Rube Goldberg Marxist socialist system. They're never very clear about what it is, but it doesn't really matter. Any important storm critical race theory, critical immigration theory Critical trends theory. I call them those things and that's fine. And so for them. It's a win win. But they have to also control the political system. That's precisely why They want to control the Supreme Court. I don't know why they pretty much control it anyway. You can see. Tony Barrett Kavanagh. They've already buckled. John Roberts wants to be the next, uh Chief Justice Warren, So that's three. Um Pretty much there's there's three Constitutional is left on the Supreme Court to in particular one most of the time. And that's where we are.

Given the economic situation that's right on the horizon. To try and institute with no majority in the Senate. They don't the majority in the Senate. It's the Constitution that gives the vice president of vote. They have no significant majority in their house. They're hanging on by a thread. And by the way, the finished thread in 100 years.

Stephen Miller Analyzes How Biden, AG Garland, and the Left Are Controlling the Narrative
"Of black lives matter also anti Semitic, both of them anti American trying to overthrow the country. And he doesn't mind mention them as grave domestic terrorist threats. And yet look at what they did to our country during the course of the summer, and you didn't mention What is F B? I told him, which is 60% of hate. Religious crimes in this country had done against Jews, mostly Orthodox Jews, and it's not done by neo Nazis. They're bad enough. Don't get me wrong, but it's done mostly by Relatively recent immigrants from the Middle East, as well as African Americans in Brooklyn. Why is it that he doesn't mention these things? Stephen Miller. Because for the left control over the narrative is everything because if if your narrative is that the biggest problem facing the American people Are radicalized white citizens. And that, of course, empowers you to do all kinds of things that you want to do throughout the government, including things that you know my organization America first legals involved in litigation on like critical critical race theory in government discrimination. And awarding some people benefits and taking benefits from others based on skin color. It's the narrative that is the moral predicate further whole agenda and also make the point. Everything is really important. When we're talking about domestic terror. I would say that what is happening on the streets of Chicago, by any definition is domestic terrorism gangs running rampant running wild Murdering people in broad daylight drive by shootings, killing woman killing Children happening on our streets That's domestic terrorism and under his department of Justice. Well, those people will not get any help. All over the world in foreign countries. People can come here by the millions and claim asylum.

The Obamacare Decision by SCOTUS Shows They Are Cowards
"The obamacare decision by the Supreme Court today is expected. And I'll tell you why not, for reasons so called legal analysts have to say. Because once these unconstitutional laws take hold They're almost impossible to undo. So the Supreme Court by 5 to 4 with Justice Roberts, the chief justice, flipping Wasn't 12 years ago. Turning into a tax case. He wrote The, uh, really the the law into, uh And for two forever Ville. And so no challenge will ever upset it. And Justice. Alito's dissent was brilliant. Gorsuch joined with him. We got all this head counting going on on T V. You know what? But they don't get at any of the substance, of course. This was a tax case. That's what the Supreme Court turned it into. And then when the tax issue Was repealed on the individual mandate by Congress. Suddenly, it's not a tax case anymore. Suddenly it's a standing case. So the Supreme Court turned itself three times. Now on this law, Obamacare into a pretzel. And those lawyers who really are not constitutional lawyers, but maybe their former federal prosecutors or former defense lawyers. Maybe I don't know. Former bankruptcy laws or whatever this is how they use their green eyeshades. And so that's that's not what's going on here. These justices are demonstrating over and over and over again. What a bunch of cowards there. Comey Cavanaugh really, so far disasters. Hopefully, that will change over
Supreme Court Rules Catholic Group Doesn't Have to Consider LGBTQ Foster Parents
"The U. S. Supreme Court has sided with the Catholic foster care agency that cited its religious beliefs for excluding gay couples as foster parents it was unanimous decision considered a victory for religious groups as the court said the city of Philadelphia was wrong to curtail its relationship with Catholic social services because the group wouldn't work with same sex couples the decision was based solely on the facts of this case and is not a broader ruling on how to balance religious freedom with anti discrimination laws L.

Liberals like Biden Can Only Play Boogeyman Politics
"Our policies are a disaster on the sucks scale, you know, like a 98 and 100 on the scale of how bad a policy that sucked So what they do is they get you to try, you know, to vote or try to get you to vote for them by saying the other guy sucks worse. That's it. That's the whole liberal agenda. They rarely run on their agenda in swing districts. You know Nancy Pelosi's district, they can run on whatever they want. But in swing districts you almost never hear liberals say things like higher taxes are wonderful. Government controlled health care is fantastic. We're going to confiscate all your guns. It only works in San Francisco. They don't do it because sane Americans and swing districts don't give a crap about any of that stuff. I think it's all crazy. So their whole agenda is well, The other guy sucks a lot worse. So I call the boogeyman politics, But liberals are phone ease. And it's all AstroTurf in all made up here is a perfect example of boogeyman politics. Right here. Here's a clip from O and one American News It's about. Let's see 35 2nd song.

Joe Biden fiddles with a flash card of anti Trump talking points during a press conference in England. Biden branching the card label DOJ talking points while speaking Sunday in Cornwall. The cards include a number of preplanned answers. That's including a claim that Trump quote, abused power. And that is Justice Department was out of control. This is the DOJ inspector general has recently opened a review into the Trump era seizure of some House Democrats and staff data during a 2018 investigation. Into leaks about the Russia probe. Can't believe this guy is in charge. Sometimes I really can't. They said in a speech the other night down in, uh, West Palm Beach. I can't get around the fact that this guy is the president is just stunning his level of incompetence. He has a This is the President United States He has a flash card number one.
What Is Disordered Eating with Melainie Rogers, Founder of Balance Eating Disorder Treatment Center
"Talk about the lay of the land as far as what what you think are see statistically is disordered eating. I think cements people even a label. People don't like their relationship with food with an example. I was at a birthday party this past weekend. The topic of fasting intermittent fasting came up with the folks there and they were talking about man. I just feel so like psychedelic. When i'm like going on my third day of my faustin just like talking about experiences. Connections do it justice A metaphor for our lives in a big part of our lives as well And they asked me like we'll have you ever tried intermittent passing like dude. I was the queen of fasting in the day. And i just. I don't do anymore but it is so commonplace that there's all these a diet chocolate a bit about what you're seeing the doors of. Maybe he will think bad relationship and soon but are not labeling themselves or don't want to label themselves either but they want help with the relationship with food absolutely so you know a lot there and it's so true right econ go anywhere without people telling you about the latest dining whether it's kito or intermittent fasting of course is big thing right now and everyone has an opinion about it and and so what i like to think about is to ask the question. What's going on for that person before. They decided to reach out to try intermittent fasting or try the kito diana whatever unusually. It's because they had distressed about their body image impulsively they white and they may have tried other diets before. And i haven't worked and i say that inverted commas because we know that ninety five percents diets fail. I'll get to that lineup. So i'd like to ask you. What was your relationship with food. And what was your relationship with your body light before you decided to pursue intermittent fasting. What's what's the real motivation around. And usually some ability or attempt to control your white and you calories and in a way that you're looking for that civil
"justice" Discussed on Workplace Justice
"All these cases will actually be found the opposite. There were fewer cases filed because the combination processing california's very much. Like everyone knows the fire. If i have to call. If i'm the next step is to get accommodate it. It's become part of the culture and so there's less litigation. We decided that we worked with some folks a better balance in new york in order to pass a pregnancy accommodation off there and they've been great leader as in this and then we convened a national coalition. And we said let's do this at the federal level. But why is this so hard at employs early doing it for disabled employees difference. I mean there's expense. Why someone who's disabled should be able to get an accommodation. A pregnant woman shot at this comes back to early question about why would pregnancy be viewed as anything but a disability pregnant Fairness act really bases itself on the ada. The american disability act incessant pregnancies a form of disability. Which is a little bit different than how handled in california. But it really is. We had a legislate this because one of the cases that we filed before the that went to the us. Supreme court was a case on behalf of workers at at and t. Who they found out when they retired that they were not given service credit for the time that they were on pregnancy on like other workers who took other kinds of disability leaves knee. Actually in the lost you know a lot of money in their retirement benefits because even if it's just like eight months over the course of the lifetime it's just that that money accumulates in terms of retirement benefits. We actually lost that case case called versus. At justice repeater. Ginsburg said this. I needs to be more women on the. Us supreme court and so there's just a lot of cases that make those distinctions and so this kind of law that really makes it clear that practice a form of temporary disability and reasonable accommodations. That don't cut against the essential functions of the job should be accommodated as much as somebody who goes out. Who's had a back injury in the news. That a little bit.

"justice" Discussed on Workplace Justice
"That decision because we think that it will help biden administration as a Thinks about those regulations and so we have at era. The nation's only pro bono legal network dedicated to representing student survivors. It's called the enough network and it's part of our initiative to end sexual violence in education. We basically founded this network whence devos was pointed because we felt there would be a really onslaught of students who experienced harassment without protection from the federal government. I mean we need look only as far as the president to know that permission was going to be granted for this kind of abuse at school in the workplace and so we formed this network to make sure that there was a support legal support network for students and it has been it really brings close to haul the sense of what happens when your education is disrupted. We all have equal right to be educated safe from harm and that's not the experience of many of our kids across the country and so we're very dedicated to title ni- we're very dedicated to make sure that there's guidance to schools that makes sense that protect the rights of all kids and that we can really just let kids the educated because this is our next generation of leaders.

And it's really needed. Even in world sadie. Your listeners is if you put a call in. There's a potential school process for your complaint and we have found. It's very helpful to have legal systems during the school process for your complaint because it can be re traumatizing. There can be irrelevant questions about Sexual history there can be ways in which they tried to bring us with their perpetrator. There can be delays in getting protective orders. So that you don't have to sit in every single class with the person who sexually assaulted you volume cases going on safety measures so these are all the ways that legal since can help you through that process even if you decide not to file a lawsuit ultimately a scrape and so let's talk a little bit about the new legislation which is still pending. The pregnant workers fairness act so wanted to hear a little bit of your thoughts in terms of your organization. Your own personal thoughts about that proposed legislation. Yeah i mean it. Leaving are not equal. Rights advocates argue the first pregnancy discrimination case before the us supreme court in nineteen seventy four arguing very novel. I guess argument that pregnancy discrimination was a form of sex discrimination and believe it or not. We lost that case in one thousand nine hundred eighty four but we wound up winning the war in that nineteen seventy eight. We amended our federal law to make sure that was expressed about that because the supreme court to be.

"Push for the equality act that would expand protections into other spheres. Lgbtq plus people and. i think that often folks come to us with thinking that they have one problem and then we on earth really just all the ways that their identities are compounding that problem. And so i think that it is important not to think about this. Just sex discrimination or race discrimination. It's this intends to be a combination. Yeah there's certainly is a lot of the intersection forms of experiences that an individual has to deal with. When it comes to discrimination within the workplace with a post op decisions certainly kind of provided us as practitioners. A different view on sex discrimination in terms of expanding it. What will your thoughts immediate thoughts when the decision came out why we have in making the argument for some time about agenda expansive identity argument about our sex discrimination laws but really that is not accepted as the law of the land in many parts of this country. And as i look at this wave of really horrible at mean-spirited anti trans kids legislation. that's coming out across. The country minister just introduced a bill. That would criminalise trans youth. That tried to join girls. Sports teams it really. It's very powerful we need. We need guidance in the united states supreme court on this now. I'm not going to say that. I have full faith that the united states supreme court is the place where we want all of our civil rights issues to be decided at this point in time. But i was gratified of that recognition by the court and i think it really validated reality of our workplaces in the reality of the kinds of experience that millions of people have in our community. I was. I was very happy to see it. Absolutely so let's talk a little bit about title nine. Let's talk about the protections that an individual has within institutions universities schools in what does equal rights advocates do for victims of any form of sex based discrimination within these institutions. The reasons why. I'm really honored to do title. Nine work is that i think that kids are what they learn if we allow inequities in schools to. That's what they expect. From their first second third fourth fifth jobs if we allow harassment in violence to happen in schools those students become emboldened in the workplace. And so we really feel like title. Nine which prohibits sex discrimination in schools that receive federal funds which are all mostly is just been one of the most transformational pieces of legislation. That's passed in our space. Passed in nineteen seventy two and it prohibit sex discrimination all educational programs instead of that does include athletics for many of us myself included. Athletics was a key part of my educational experience than pave the way for me to be the first to go to college and to get some money to do that..

"And then we said. But what about. All the on unionized janitors and so we formed a pasta coalition. Which means enough is enough with women janitor leaders to pass a law taking the relief that maria hocus stood up for into a law. That's now benefiting two hundred thousand janitors in california. The law has been replicated in two other states and is now being considered by other low paid industries like agriculture migrant workers. So from one person who couldn't even name what happened to her to be until for trial she has had a legacy of a decade of help of millions of people that were in her shoes. Not every case shows up like that. But we've you every single case as part of that movement and so i would just encourage you to find a place where you feel safe find a great lawyer and slowly defend yourself as best. We're very proud for every step at selling can make and it can really change the face of our workplace. Let's nominal that's great definitely a great story and certainly a very common story for a lot of those people that are put in those situations in those positions where their circumstances the difficulties of life in general relationships. All the things that they have to do. They put all of that before their experiences and the difficulties that they've had to deal with an experience such a difficult thing so it's certainly a remarkable story in certainly marinez empowered so many others by her legacy of having spoken and tells you a lot about how hard it is in that situation. So yeah that's wonderful wonderful to hear. Now let's talk a little bit about different forms of sex discrimination that somebody experiences obviously sexual harassment. Is the more more publicized form of sexual discrimination. What would you say to our listeners. Today in terms of other forms of sex discrimination that individuals in the workplace experience across the board. We are not just any one thing. We all have intersectional identities. We gender we have sexual orientation we have our race. Ethnicity and many workers experienced harm the workplace. Because of all of those things. So it's really important. When you think about how. I feel that this treatment is different or that you think about all the identities that might come into play age disability ethnicity race marital status your gender identity and i'm grateful that we're finally seeing more cases that really show the compounds of harm based on all of our identities and we do have in our federal law a fairly comprehensive list which has just been expanded by a recent supreme court case to make sure that includes gay and transgender people pasta decision. We have happening in congress right now..

"On fox news for him to be finally shown the door with a golden parachute isn't aside but i think that there's a reckoning with me too. I think that there has been a spotlight on the fact that often. Hr departments can be complicit as opposed to helpful in sexual harassment and. I think that it's really a comment upon employers. Look it's a competitive job. Market to retain people to attract people. There are shareholders to be beholden to and so these are factors that are bottom line business decisions but just also in terms of what you get the best thing that you get from your workers is if you make them feel safe you give them their best chance to be successful. You have to be absolutely clear about your policies. You have to put them in action with an action again and again you have to provide very specific examples about what is harassment. Wound is a hostile environment. Doesn't have to be a sexualize one. There's no end to resources to employers to do this right. But often we need to enforce the law for them to be incentivized. Now let me ask you this. Noreen obviously sure that you've heard this question for many people and lot of times those that are questioning people's intense especially when it comes to sexual harassment a lotta times. The victims and survivors of these type of circumstances situations incidents..

"And i think that this is something that we recognized a lot more as practitioners about how much of that power dynamic in the relationship between an employer or somebody who is in a position of some power can use that power in a manner in which they exploit or take advantage of someone who has less of it and kind of leveling that playing field with law for protection. What are your thoughts about your work with your a trims of sexual harassment in ways that we can kind of combat this in a much more broader level. And so appreciate that. You're asking this question. Because i think the metoo movement i think exposed one. I think the meeting was important because after so many years our fight was proving. That happens and i feel like the metoo movement shifted to like. That's it happens. How do we make it stop. There was a new conversation that presumed that it happens and sexual harassment is always has been the number one form of complaint receive on our help line and i will know you all know this. It happens in every single industry. We represent janitors and servers and professors and women attack and so it really is across every position every industry and i think that the power dynamic is so critical and it starts from the moment. Someone takes a job when they have to sign agreements at say. They will arbitrate their claims. They will be quiet about their claims. In order to resolve a complaint they have to away their rights. And so it's both sort of this system power and it's also just personal power. It doesn't matter what industry you're in if you have a supervisor that is allowed to continue to harass and no one above him or her them is doing anything about it. There is incredible sense of helplessness. To folks who are experiencing sexual harassment in your state hearing with respect to the governor and time and time again we hear employers. Who really are supposed to be getting. It don't stand their power. Even among very educated and powerful women in their own right at power dynamic is really really. Such a crucial factor. and so what. We aim to do with the law and so glad that we do this community with you is to really level playing field by not having people sign away. Their actual rights by making sure that employers are held accountable when they protect repeat repetitive. That they are able to silence people through settlements and get tax deductions through their settlements which is a component of one of the federal pieces of legislation. And i have been really hardened we are co leads of a network of states to stop harassment and our goals are to push the strongest slates of me to legislation in the entire country across the country. And i'm so happy that we're finally getting traction on ending silencing agreements on making sure that people don't have to arbitrate their claims necessarily in order to have their legal rights we're making sure that they are more nuance trainy..

"I think it would really make employers hard pressed to continue to pay people differently so ask what other people are making ask what factors were considering the in pay and continually no your worth test the market. I'm still excited that we're in. This new era withers class doors. Were there are public sharing of certain jobs and salaries go in there get arms. Get your information there. Isn't this taboo about talking about wages. Like there may venue. When all of us i entered the workplace so look. I think that there's individual things people can do. But we're also trying to change the law to really fill in those gaps through people all and also sometimes people just need great legal counsel and they need representations. I'm so glad that you're exists. I appreciate that. So what are in your opinion. Some of the. I know you mentioned in terms of pay transparency but we do have title seven of the civil rights athey of equal pay. Act the Ledbetter so why are these laws insufficient than what are some of the deficiencies. And why is there a real need for more legislation. You know what happens is as litigators. She all are to you these cases. And you feel like you've got the perfect law and then you see how things similar in the sexual harassment context to which i'd love to talk about. Uc that perfect example and this is a gap that the paycheck fairness would feel. Great keys in california. Where a great example back case where a woman working in san francisco was being paid less than employees that were working in fresno mail that she didn't have any males in her particular business location but she tried to compare it to other business locations and there is a dispute that you can't rely on sean. Comparisons in different business locations the same employer so she didn't have the right temperature for her case discrimination in so the paycheck fairness act would say look. If you've got an employer with a bunch of different locations. You might be the only one in the small little office but if you compare them and show that there isn't market reasons why they're paid differently. You can use that to prove your case so all the stuff sounds like common sense right. It is really being expressed that you can't be retaliated against for talking about pay even in california where this is the law for some time. I still get calls. We have a national helpline and we get a lot of people from california to who say. Oh yeah it's just clear you're not supposed to talk about pay and it's really challenging to find out if you actually are paid inequitably if you can't find out so these are the kinds of gaps that we find are really troubling in cases and so over the years we've just thought about all the gas and we have thought about laws that can fill them and we need really smart attorneys to be helping us to continue to identify those as we push our head in terms of our policy work. Wonderful one thing that you mentioned previously was about the what i recognize. Is that power dynamic. The power dynamic of how institutions that are somewhat embedded with these societal processes as to how things should be viewed how things should be an hour fightback in essence to try to eliminate that right. This is that battle and we're talking about power dynamics from the context of sexual harassment..

"Workplace to help their children learn. They are suffering from wage penalties. When you're forced out of the workforce because you don't have paid leave. Studies had found that women. Coming back into the workforce meets seven percent less than men. Coming back into the workforce for the same job. And so as i think about you know. What's the root is actress. Plain old intentional discrimination. Or is there some other root causes. That's prompting women to be paid so much. Less studies have found. It's not surprising to all of us. Is that women are coming back. Their laps is held against them whereas men who are coming back from a short job laps. It's not held against excused. And one of the key pieces that we're working on is so many employers rely on what your prior salary was your last job in setting your higher pay. California was with the first states to pass a lot provide that. But it's still not the law of federally and what we are trying to do is say look. Don't rely on that fire sour because it's often embedded with a lot of sex discrimination in devalued work in the women's start their jobs very first hiring pay as being less than men because of that and it only gets wider as they continue their careers. So that's a key policy change that we're trying to push and for folks that are listening likes important that employers have patriots. So you're not beating against yourself or trying to combat a fire salary. That wasn't really what you should have been earning. And i think you mentioned a number of things. Tell us a little bit about like what jeff was saying about. The root causes a little bit about the historical nature of how this gender wage gap exists. I know that's a very very lengthy question that potentially go into a lot of tidal things of that nature. But i guess in terms of specifically now in the last fifty years or so with kind of closing these gaps and kind of closing additional gaps. That have been created as a result of all these other types of institutionalized forms of discrimination against people and on the basis of gender. I guess my question is big here. I'm getting to it. Which is ultimately. What can we do as people to overcome this. We hold employers to do the right thing and kind of eliminate this gap. Well actually. i really love your question about some of the historical origins because we just signed a letter with about two hundred different women's rights organizations across the country to president biden and to awesome of our elected officials when we heard that there's movement to raise the minimum wage but to actually exclude tipped workers from that. Bill there's been some negotiation about that. And what we raised was that the tip minimum wage has its origins in slavery emancipated slaves when they first paid the only repaid via tipped. Which of course. Julia changes the dynamic of their work. And you see this. Really historic roots of how people are paid on equally until the mid sixties..

"Amazing and so like you mentioned you do a combination of things you both are involved in catering to a number of campaigns to actually address a lot of these issues both legislatively in terms of the general issues that exists for workers in general and then also you're out to make sure that employers and other institutions are held accountable and so that certainly is very very respectable in terms of the work that you guys do so. Let's talk about the issues that we are experiencing and women are experiencing. Today there are still a number of challenges that exist in women's rights in terms of the united states both in the workplace as well as in various institutions throughout this country including educational institutions. Let's talk a little bit about the gender wage gap. Just recently we had equal pay day obviously organization was running a campaign. You wanna tell us about that. Yeah i mean look. It's insane that over fifty years. After their civil rights laws passed to make sure that women and men are paid equally were still experiencing a gap that's costing women hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of their careers much worse for women of color just this week. We celebrated the kick off of equal pay days. Which is how far into this year. Women have to work across different demographics to make earnings of men on average last year. And just as we celebrated all women's the average but then it takes black women until august to make up those wages native women until september and latino women until october take those wages and so we helped found a national network organizations across the country that are really committed to closing the wage and race. Wage gap is called equal. Pay today and we use those same strategies. We have a national employment. At fair pay litigator network. And we're really strategizing about what are the cases that need to be brought to show the gaps in the law and we're also working to change the law and so before this new administration. We really active in the states to really push state laws to be stronger in california. We passed in twenty fifteen d calif fair pay act which was then the strongest equal. Pay law on the books in the states. And i'm happy to say that forty eight states have since replicated and strengthen that model and now we're gonna see up in the federal space. The paycheck fairness act. But you know. I think that these days throughout the year highway all the contributors to the pay gap which are all kinds of sex discrimination so the over segregation of women in low paid work and are under representation in higher off the fact stat. Our minimum wage is too low. Two thirds of the minimum wage earners in this country are women and that there's a tipped minimum wage as you know but maybe a lot of people don't know that many tipped workers in this country actually have a sub minimum wage of two dollars and thirteen cents and they have to put up with a lot of harassment at or mic tips. That get them up to the minimum wage and so that's a key component of the wage gap that we're talking about and then of course shouldn't people working in similar jobs make the same. Hey in nearly every industry every job there's of pay gap and so we have a lot to battle. But i also just want to mention a part of our platform isn't the obvious but when you think about the fact that women who are now coming out inc ovid bearing the brunt of childcare not always having paid leave being forced from the.

For the most part they are not entitled to accom- she's as bright in massachusetts have appointment workers fairness so pregnant workers to the extent that they need in combination are entitled to one. If you're talking about what your vision is someone a later. Start time to drop the kids off in the morning. You're correct the law doesn't require that however if you're also allowing a later start time because someone is competing from made somebody who has to drop the kids off doesn't get it that long so employers still duty to watch out for that and we should note that you know i mean i feel the see with the differences between a lactation break as cigarette at both instances. You're not doing work for somebody who needs a break to talk to their kids on the phone fail to see why that's any more distracting than the employee was the smoke. A cigarette is playing on facebook posting things that are making the so angry. They come back. You can't work for half an hour. Because they're right amped up and angry about six posting. So i fail to see this fiction but yeah i wouldn't go in and demanded accommodation plastic cases young versus ups. Where the pregnant worker wanted in accommodation they said no. The kind of got caught driving drunk hustler tribe license. Like more lab right. It had gone supreme court. Unfortunately by basically the answer was well. You know right. Yeah you can't treat them different whether it's a good question. It's a good question.

The fbi can get time off under the umbrella. You could use it intimately for example. Let me actually bring this up right now because this is a phenomenon ac- a lot especially with people that are perhaps speak talian so you don't get accommodation when there's a lot of informal stuff that goes on it sometimes. Employers wanna penalize employees. What they do is they'll stop allowing informal accommodation and suddenly required the use ethanol because they use it up and i know that they're going to still need it even after they use it up. And we'll find give sprite fried. We'll tag it right. They exploit that and it gives them an excuse to now get rid of the employees right because you used up. If you saw that in the more we light. Oh now you're late hour the penal Restored you're out right. I was just at that. Might show retaliation for heaven taken him. But it's a common man. I see that a lot because people said well take me now. So the context here. It wasn't a problem so suddenly did live. Yes but rebecca in terms of gender stereotypes. Let's talk a little bit about the different types of stereotypes that people experience within the workplace. I'm trying to think where it's it's a. It's a slow many right. I know he's like wow. Where do i start. It's a lot of concerns about reliability concerns about focus concerns about saleability. So you hear things like you have a lot on your plate right. You're causing team to have problems function. We can't get a hold of you. We need many times. That's tied to whether or not the employee sitting at their desks. The manager can come down running whatever they freak out and see them sitting at their best. It's not actually about whether this person responded to the issue at time but those are common misconceptions about caregivers so you know awhile. We need to be able to call one. Is that we to. How often does that happen. And three is. That person is lot available navy. That person checks their email at a certain time. Or maybe the manage different way but the assumption is. If you're not sitting at your best with most-fun-to email slap message whatever within ten seconds. You're not available. I novel the case years ago where a woman came back from maternity leave. That was her. Big issues is not available. One of houston's involve wasn't available the edge. She had her shut. They didn't like that. She had her abortion if she had Pumping and so no. The male partner could not burst into her office whenever he felt like she lack. Right there be waited. Fifteen minutes So it's things like that men will often hear what hall loose lips comments. That things like well. Can't you get your you know what are females. Do this engine higher somewhat. Your wife's job and some men have reporting a lot more hostility like women. The stereotype often benevolent. We're trying you know where we just don't want to overload you. It's never liked that man. It's always well. You gotta figure out how to deal with that we can't you gotta figure out how to solve it. There's something else absolutely job before it's as you call second supervisors syndrome. Y'all have a situation employees formal accommodation sophomore from academy formal understanding. And then you get a new supervisor and the new supervisor doesn't want right and so while yes under employment will principals supervisors and managers. We can change the rules in any time. Is it really necessary to do that. And are they doing that. As a way to penalize the employee and pushed them out the door those are situations you'll see allies found out before. Oh suddenly got to start using. Fmla all that you never had to before everyone. She now suddenly got sick. Nothing changed with respect to the job that these are the exact same that they were able to do. Therefore there's no reason why they can't continue now right now suddenly. It's instead things have been shipped around to make it impossible for the for you. Continue work- bro. You'll see things. You'll see concerns about reliability. We need to be able to count. I had a client years ago. Who was literally told that she was out a lot because she's doing paternity treatments. She'd been trying to get pregnant. She a couple of miscarriages and her supervisor said you're all seeing out you're describing now we can't count the data showed. She was the biggest produce.

"They'll kind of an open question so the plaintiffs in the those cases which was actually three cases were chew gay men in a transgender woman and bisexual people were certainly not explicitly in the opinion but i think that the reasoning of both stock and other cases saying that title seven protects. Lgbtq people would apply with just as much force to bisexual people. So i think the illustration that the court used was tied to the facts before the court which was a transgender woman in two gay men but if you fire someone for being by factual you're taking into account the fact that they are so. Is this person a man or woman someone. Non binary in the sex of the person they're attracted to and that just like firing a gay man or transgender woman. Unavoidably is a sex-based decision. So i think that would drive. The i think that would be treated the same way. And then the other way of thinking about it is how these things play out. There may also be other evidence that employees could draw. Okay one thing i would add. Jeff is for the listeners out. There is if you want to read kind of a a really. I think good analysis to kind of touches upon you mentioned is invite people to read the czar decision which was authored by chief judge katzman as as roma had mentioned that the most doc decision was actually three decisions one was arte arte was the gay man. If i'm not mistaken and judge katzman really goes through a very very kind of analysis with a lot of different hypotheticals and kind of states. Different theories as to why the court should take particular approach now. Of course that was the second circuit case it was the predecessor before it percolated up to the us supreme court but in that case i mean judge caspian goes through very kind of robust analysis to support why that court believed that uae sex's covered under huddle seven with the same sort of analysis as gore. Sick or now i don't think it was. I think it was different. Although it came to the same conclusion. I mean justice chief justice. Excuse me just gorsuch is was a very textualist approach. Which of course we can discuss. Whereas i don't think i would say judge batsman's wasn't but i think it's certainly worth reading. It's a good read if you wanna take chances kind of look through it. It's very thorough. And it's very long to. As a matter of fact as thing. I wanted to ask you was in terms of guests. This textual approach and for those who don't know what a textiles approaches or who haven't heard of sexualization brief textual ism isn't essence a method of reputation whereby the plain words. The text of a statute is used to determine the meaning of a legislation and not so much as the legislative intent or perhaps overall statutory scheme. That's something that most conservative judges. I think adhere to it. Certainly the late justice scalia. He adhered to that. And certainly justice. Gorsuch is indeed a conservative as well no doubt but given that you have this textualist approach in both stock and you have seen a number of conservative judges that have been appointed to the federal bench certainly during the trump administration.

"And welcome to the workplace justice. Podcast my name is myron the sar and in this episode. Today we have a very special guest. Today we'll be discussing workplace bullying experiences that an individual within the workplace goes through the difficulty challenges and how we can overcome it and we're joined today by an individual who has so graciously dedicated her time and fighting for individuals within the workplace a workplace bullying expert linda. Crockett is here with us today. Linda thank you so much for joining us my pleasure. Thank you for having me so. Linda amazed with all the work that you do. You've been in this field for thirty two years. Tell us a little bit about your reasons for getting into the specific area of becoming a workplace bullying expert at the twenty two year mark of my own career in social work in if anybody knows that profession. We got our hands into a lot of different places. I had years of experience working in poverty domestic violence sexual abuse addictions medical social worker. And i had all kinds of training in investigating and assessing all forms of abuse. I even trained investigators on how to assess and address all kinds of abuse so a twenty two year mark. I knew how to get through all the different systems that we have in our world mental health medical systems income systems. You name it. But yet i found myself at an absolute bottom because i was going through workplace bullying i was experiencing it and i didn't know what it was. I had no words and to fi- i you all kinds of abuse. I did not know this one and so it took a very long time for me to figure it out. And by the time i did. I was actually diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder. As a result of the situation. That i was in i was exposed for over two years. My bully happened to be a psychologist. Who knew very well how to believe people have read them in their weak spots or they're sensitive spots. Whatever you wanna call it. But i was also believed by to. Hr a social worker and a pastor. So when you're going through that you cannot believe that a psychologist social worker pasture with do such a thing so you're constantly in self-doubt or isolating your question what you think if you see so when i figured it out i was devastated and i have to admit to you. I was even more shamed because i should have known. That's the words it went through my head. I should have known. How could i trained all these people. But that's the same as dr missing diagnosis on their child or a policeman. Finding out their child is arrested for drugs or whatever. That's the same thing so we ended up in more isolations you know. It's very much like domestic violence and sexual assault in the sense that it is very shaming and it often blames the victim and that silencing in that shih-ming enables the abuse to continue. Because everybody's pulled out. Nobody wants to get involved. You're everybody's afraid. So when i went through it and realized this was it i did some research and i look for some help and there was nobody. There is no one. I tried different therapists to try to process invent and they actually made me worse because they really didn't know what they were doing and they used the wrong treatment. Modality on me. So it made my injury even worse and of course insurance companies and unions. Nobody knew of doing so. I knew how to do. My recovery work my training. It taught me what to do. I decided to get my masters degree specializing in this area. Because it really impacted me that. If i couldn't navigate these systems how someone who is not educated like i am who is not experienced like i am and what about those people. They don't speak english as a first language. I was really concerned if there were going to be many more after me and it was horrible to be alone going through that misunderstood. So that's the passion behind the drive of mine to do research and find out what we needed. And i discovered that there was actually a recovery center in germany and a day treatment program in norway and i thought we'd essential here leah center in canada. And that's why i started the workplace bullying center. She do research do recovery programs to do some teaching and training. But you need usa. You have the workplace bullying institute. Dr gary namias as well. So i went and got his training to and over the last ten years of running this company. I swear i have never been busy. Because it's an academic. Yeah that's amazing obviously. This is a very difficult topic that deals with a lot of individuals because everyone that is an employee works within the workplace. The experiences are difficult to necessarily understand from a perspective of themselves but also so much to communicate and so much misunderstandings exist as a result of trying to figure out what is happening. What's going on celinda in terms of how would you define. I guess there's so many different ways in so many different patterns in which workplace bullying occurs. Can you shed a little bit of light on what types of bullying and what type of patterns you've seen. Well i can touch on the definition. I can give you a little bit about my own experience how i define it as well as i'm going to read for you a very loaded. Herod graph that really defines it well. And if you want i'll send you the paragraph with references and you can post it in that people can be really workplace. Bullying is not at all like childhood. Bullying that's one. We have to try to shift that stigma stereotype. It's not childhood bullying where it's primarily aggressive. It can be psychological obviously at school as well verbal in cyber but workplace malays primarily psychological. Of course it will. Escalate to physical unaggressive is primarily psychological harassment as terminology us years psychological harassment cycle of violence. So it's an abuse of power in power comes in many forms whether it's top down or bottom up or it's peer to peer. It comes in many forms and there are many definitions depending on what researcher what country what province what state. There's a little bit terminology that changes than evil get wrapped up in that definition. So for you this loaded paragraph and then i'll tell you a little bit more about how i see it. The paragraph starts were placed blank signifies emotional abuse and compensating subtle and or obvious negative psychosocial behaviors embodying aggression austerity and intimidation generally characterized by persistence exhibited by workplace insiders and outsiders operating individually and or as a group to an individual or a group employees during the course of the lars work being interpersonal and organizational in level the display of the negative behaviors which most often bears the mark of influences from within and without outside the or place occurs privately or publicly and in real or in cyber forms in the context of an existing or Unequal power relationship between the parties while targets workplace blink notwithstanding the harm they undergo often strive towards wellbeing who agonists like bullies bystanders. Employers experienced varied outcomes. I think that's really good definitions while send it to you but to break it down really. It means a variety of negative tactics in us towards an employee or a group of employees which overtime causes an injury and similar to domestic violence sexual assault or even combat trauma. Over time as the saying goes it becomes death by thousand cuts and it is not just. It's death of career death of her reputation death of bank account death of your home. Because you could lose your home. And i have clients who have lost. Their home is death of self esteem. Self confidence of safety a sense of safety in your workplace. There are time flynn these. Negative behaviors are deliberate conscious. Planned predatory absolutely but there are also times when it's not.

"As to what the request was to kind of mention something that jeff touched upon is that it comes out of a actually a very famous case called young against ups which went all the way to the supreme court is that if during your pregnancy. If you're undergoing medical treatment or just by virtue of the nature of your pregnancy that you may need a heavy lifting accommodation or you may need an adjustment to your work if your work is providing a similar adjustment or a similar accommodation for people who say for example as was the ups case for people who had workplace injuries or for people who had disabilities if you need a an accommodation as they were receiving than you should be entitled to it so if there are complications with pregnancy. Or if there are things that you may need to make your ability to perform the central functions of your job available you indeed need to talk to your employer when woman discloses her pregnancy and certainly to whom she tells and what and the timing of. That is a very personal decision. We have a lot of women who contact our office. Who say. I'm two weeks pregnant. And i just received word that i had a positive test. I want to tell everyone immediately. That's perfectly fine that's again. That's something that somebody wants to do. Then by all means. There's other women who say i want to wait till the end of the first trimester or i wanna wait until halfway through the second trimester people sometimes say i don't even wanna tell until i'm showing. I would recommend that at some point some point. You're probably a woman will need to tell her employer if another reason. I think it's professional. I think it's something that you need to protect yourself so that when you do go out on leave that you kind of set the table so to speak so that way. Your employer isn't left kind of holding the bag to the extent that that's possible gain some women at it might not be possible for other women it may be but whenever an employee fills comfortable to alert management and kind of get everything in order so that way it can be somewhat of a seamless transition to the extent possible into maternity leave and then of course once maternity leave be to the extent possible in reasonable communicative with your employers to when you wanna come back and sitting up things that you may want to do some work while on maternity leave and when that happens i mean i think it's all a matter of communication with your employer and good employers are gonna want to have good communication with their employees and of course that's something that has to be felt out by both the employer employee and hopefully they can do a constructive way which makes everything seamless for the woman and to follow up on that a little bit. It's important to keep in mind disparate treatment. And what i'm referring to is. Casey briefly directs the ups case. Now there can be instances where an employee let's say needs. An pregnant employ wants to work from home under likely said under federal law. That employee isn't necessarily entitled to work from home because they're not entitled to an accommodation however if the employer is allowing other employees who also are entitled to work from home. Let's say someone lost their driver's license and they had no way of getting to work and the employer said okay. That's fine you can work from home but the pregnant employee who's asking to work from home isn't allowed now you would say under federal law. Let's say you're not in new york state. You would say okay well. I guess i'm not allowed to. I mean i'm not entitled to it so there's nothing i can do about it. That's not true if they are treating you differently than other employees who were not pregnant. Then you do have a cause of action and you do have a claim based on pregnancy discrimination. They are treating you differently. They are allowing people with other reasons to work from home. But if you're pregnant you're not allowed to work from home so it's very important to keep in mind how you're being treated as compared to other people who are similarly situated to you in the workplace in who are not pregnant and see if there's a disparate sort of treatment that you can make out well great that's very informative you happen to be pregnant within the workplace and you have certain questions about your pregnancy in terms of your workplace rights. Please feel free to reach out to the navarro. Logger will be happy to speak with you about them. And see how we can help you. Navigate with your employer. This is myron asarco.

"Skeet and jeffrey rosenberg. Welcome to the workplace justice podcast. My name is myron saw. An i am joined with. Casey hausky and jeffrey rosenberg. Today we're gonna be talking about negotiating your sovereigns. Your severance agreement is an agreement that an employer offers to you when they're looking to separate you from your employment. There are a lot of things that you need to know about this agreement how it impacts your rights and how it impacts your future employment. So i'm gonna talk a little bit about all these different issues alongside with casey and jeff. Casey tell me a little bit about if an employee receives a separation package a severance agreement. How should they navigate that process. How should they navigate looking at what they've been offered. In terms of a monetary amount the different clauses within the agreement. And what would your recommendations in terms of advising people about their rights under this agreement before signing it. So there's a few things i would say. Number one is anytime. Anybody receives any kind of severance agreement. It's usually part and parcel of somebody. Having lost their job. Which i know is always a very difficult thing and there's always a point of knowing what is going to happen next one's family with one's career where they're gonna get money and i know that a lot of times people are very concerned because now you have job loss you have document which was thrown before you which you have to kind of figure out. Well what do i do. Do i hire an attorney. Do i do this myself. Do i talk to friends. There's a lot of terms and conditions in here. That i have to kind of look over and i know that it's always a very difficult position. So people are in. There's two things. I think that people need to really focus on it. We can get into the details a little bit here. But the number one aspect is going to be the monetary component right. How much is that. They are offering you for what is called a severance agreement or a separation agreement. Sometimes they'll call it a termination agreement or even a settlement agreement. Whatever it's called it's basically the same thing and you're looking at. How much money are they providing you now. A lot of employers will have a structure that is handed down from above that they sometimes will determine based on a mathematical formula terms of x. number of weeks or x. number of months per years of of employment with the company. And you'll look at the amount that they're offering you. That's the monetary aspect and then the second component is the non monetary aspect. What are the non monetary components..

"Sixty thousand youth under the age of eighteen are incarcerated in both jails in prisons is covert nineteen continues to spread through the criminal. Justice system advocates are calling for the release of more minors in detention to learn more about the particular challenges. Covert nineteen poses for incarcerated youth. My fellow intern at Penn. America's prison injustice rating program. Liz Fury called up one of the strongest leading advocate in juvenile justice field. Vincent Trolley Benson is currently a senior research scientist at Columbia's School of social work in Director of Columbia Justice Lab. History in the field is expansive and impressive. Vincent founded the policy think-tank the Justice Policy Institute and even worked in government is director of juvenile corrections in Washington. Dc then as commissioner of the New York City Department probation where he pioneered effort to community based alternatives to incarceration in New York City in Washington DC. Most recently Schiraldi served as senior adviser to the New York. City mayor's Office of Criminal Justice. All of this history has gained Vincent a national reputation as a fearless reformer. Listen the opportunity to ask him about. America's youth incarceration problem in how this pandemic is further exposing it. They also talked about ways to support incarcerated youth by getting involved in advocacy efforts. My name is Keith Camel. I've been joining us for the last few weeks but I'm happy to turn the conversation over. Liz bringing her brilliant thoughtful in hard work behind the scenes. This past month the forefront. We're glad you're joining us again. For Penn America's New Rock Response Series Temperature Check Covey nineteen behind bars. Thanks so much for joining us. I'm joined by Vincent. I'm so glad we could sit down and talk about justice involve youth Start off with some questions and I could imagine as we talk. Maybe we'll get into some side tangents about things we're really passionate about. I know I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUTH. Just having worked in it just for like a year and it really made me realize how important working with youth is for an overall a holistic view including like in schools and like. I'm sure you know about the school to Prison Pipeline. And all that stuff like that so I'm really interested in youth particularly youth justice. I know you are as well so I think like a good starting question would be I know that you were involved in The do see and working as a director. So then you transitioned into academia Do you WanNa talk a little bit about like how you started off with your career where you are now like what led you to wear. Yeah and I want to. I want to start by dedicating this to a friend and colleague who passed away this week. His name was pulled a mural in in the sixties and Seventies. Paul worked with a mentor of mine. Jerry Miller and they closed every juvenile facility in a state of Massachusetts during a about a two year period Sent allocates home except sixty kids. Total into thirty bed facilities were in small facilities. So it's really the first kind of major institutional has ation of juvenile's in American. Paul was a mentor of Mine and stuck with me all these years and helped me out when I ran youth corrections myself So I just want to dedicate this to him. I actually started working in a group home when I was an undergraduate at Binghamton statement of versity in upstate New York and then her Jerry Miller who just mentioned speak about closing prisons down in Massachusetts and I went to work for Jerry. I sort of chased him out of the classroom. I was enthralled by it. This was nineteen eighty-one probably and So I I You know so. That's early days. Really of mass incarceration and think probably mid to late seventies is when most people say mass incarceration started and grew every year between men in two thousand nine so Heard Jerry talk about how he was able to let all the kids out of these institutions provide them with kind of services and supports and I said okay. This is what I WANNA do until I worked for nonprofits from them from one thousand nine hundred eighty one all the way till two thousand five and I never really thought I was going to go into government But then the juvenile justice agency in Washington. Dc was under a court order was litigation over terrible horrible conditions staff beating the kids up sexually assaulting the kids rats and cockroaches crawling on the kids at night. Awful awful awful hair-raising stuff and surprisingly because I was a big critic of it is my nonprofit organization Justice Policy Institute. The mayor offered me job to run the place that so's one of those. Put your money where your mouth is moments and I decided to do it on. So you briefly. Talked About Your own nonprofit. Do you WanNa talk a little bit about that and why you started and what it does today actually started to nonprofits. One is called the center on juvenile and criminal justice. That's in San Francisco and that provided a combination of direct services in advocacy in research. So We'd put out these kind of high impact studies showing racial discrimination in the system war. How much more money? We're spending on prisons than higher education. You know things like that and we also providing direct services some of which were funded by the government so that became a problem because the government was not very happy about criticizing somebody who was funding and so I split off and created the Justice Policy Institute in Washington. Dc and back then it was not easy to get foundation money to do advocacy around criminal. Justice work nobody is wasn't this groundswell of both had the kids at formerly incarcerated people in philanthropy. There's the pickens. Were very slim if you wanted to be an advocate only and so you know that's fine. That's what we sign up for this in his field But that's what the Justice Policy Institute was and it still local still around but the Justice Policy Institute never provide any services because it wanted to be able to say whatever it wanted to be able to say without worrying. This governor that corrections administrator was going to enact reprisals You also touched on a reason why you got into the dot is because you were so knowledgeable about the harsh living conditions of prisons and jails. And I think that especially with everything going on right now. With covert in the spreading that has led to a lot of reforms in terms of like releases of people How do you think that Cova in particular is affecting youth detention because detention is obviously a little bit different than adult presence? Do you think that there's like a unique factor in youth detention how it's being affected during covert you know? I think it's I think it's a similar nightmare in a lot of ways to the adult system with with a couple of variations. But I think they're they're they share a lot more than they don't share on you know when when the pandemic started to become obvious I got together with a bunch of current and former youth correctional administrators and we issued a statement saying reduced the number of people. You're locking up. Close the front door And you know. Create a covert plan. There were many more elements to it there but that was basically it also provide support to families when their kids come home and we issued that and the reason we should is because every one of us the first thing you do you have a rumblings places you start imagining what's GonNa Happen. And here's the way it's GonNa play out is playing out in several places. The virus enters your system. Somehow someway somehow some way through staff through kid comes in the family member through maiden staff you know however and everybody starts to freak out staff start. Get SICK or call in sick. Because they're afraid of getting sick or because family members is sick. And now you've got an order thin staffing compliment. That gets thinner programs get closed down. Because you don't want people coming into might be sick. School gets closed. Visitation gets closed. Volunteers get closed so now. The kids are already in a stressful situation. Because they're Ori- in a juvenile correctional system in America so let's just every day starts stressful and now you up to stress many fault and you have to make this decision. Do I lock the kids down? Or do I let him out into a congregate setting where there is no frigging way. They're gonNA stay six feet away from each other and there's no way might staff who already didn't keep this place. Hygienic before this are GONNA clean it enough. And so that's the situation that person after person after person finds themselves in so that's kind of issued that statement somewhat early on was what we were trying to say. Is You know the doctor did the head physician at rikers island. Dr McDonald said a storm is coming. We need to get ready for right. That was his that was his sort of clarion call. Today it was a beautiful way of putting it and so I got to thinking about storms when it coming. What do you tell your citizenry? Get out there. Now get the plywood up in the hammer nails in board up the windows. You don't say wait till the wind is blowing one hundred miles an hour and then get the boards at hammer nails out. And that's what we're trying to say to. Juvenile correctional administrators politicians the governors mayors county council. Prepare for this now. Bar a bunch of people from coming into the city and released them anybody on a misdemeanor. Anybody on a probation violation anybody's got thirty. Sixty ninety days left to serve on her sentence. Get them the hell out of there. Nothing's going to happen next. Ninety days in your juvenile correctional facility. That is going to change the life of this young person except navy getting coded so get them out of your facility right now in big numbers. Don't do a bunch of individualized Blah Blah Blah. Which is what everybody always wants to do. And then with whoever's left do the individualized plan because yes we get. Some of the kids will be in your view too dangerous to release but not the misdemeanor. It's not the probation. Violators not the kids to fail the program. Not The kids that are coming out in ninety days anyway all of them pretty much or not too dangerous for you to be worrying about so get them out of your facility and then start to take a very careful look at anybody who's left especially anybody with asthma. Honsik kids in my facility had asthma and we know that having asthma mixed the symptoms of covert worse or any of the medically vulnerable kids very carefully. Start looking at them. Very carefully stuck to release plans with prosecutors judges people But step one is get big numbers out so in terms of the kids. That are released Have you or people you know organizations that you know of? Have there been any like solid aftercare programs because I know in talking to Some people I was connected with at my previous job which is the Youth Justice Center in Staten Island That the kids being released from Like horizons or other detention centers. That normally in after care plan takes quite a bit a while to plan like six months prior to release you. Start thinking about after care. Plans like what's going to go on Do you know anything about either. Your nonprofit or other people that are Helping with this kind of relief. I've heard that there are a bunch of groups actually have gotten together on this and that a lot of youth correctional administrators are starting to sorta amp up their release planning We should all been doing this. The first day to kit arrived the first aid kit rhyme. You should start thinking okay. Six months from now nine months from now we have this Gig go. What's that GONNA look like? What kind of after care plan will ever be so shame on you? If you already haven't been doing that but one of the things I've been thinking is you know we're all wishing life was back to normal. I wish I was sitting in a room with you. Do in this interview. I wish I could go to a bar tonight. I wish I could go to a game right and which kids could go back to school but there are some places where we don't want to go back to normal and mass incarceration is one of them. We don't want to fill these facilities backup. We don't WanNa do Lousy aftercare plans for these kids and so we should really be looking at this moment. Not just as an opportunity to keep young people safe but as an opportunity to improve stuff. We should've been improving anyway. It's a disaster right now and everybody's really concerned about putting a kid into that disaster. We should have always been concerned about putting that kid into that disaster. Not just now because they might get covered nineteen but always because they might get beaten up they might get raped their chances of success upon release go down and because it's dramatically racially ethnically disparate does should have been our concerns every single day. And now we add to that pile the pandemic so this was all fired. Good idea before and we don't want to get back to normal right and I think what you're saying is like a percent accurate really hitting the money on that one where like I hate that. It took a pandemic for people to Kinda be at this level of like a quick reaction for reform. Like mass incarceration like you said was starting to be prominent in the sixties and Seventies. Shame that it took so long to get to this point but at the same time it's kind of like this was kind of like a kick out the door to you know..
