Unemployment Claims Rise as Job Rebound Loses Momentum

"Ativan, economist with Bloomberg Economics landed good to talk to you. Ah, Prior to the pandemic, President Trump emphasized the solid job gains experienced under his presidency. Of the unemployment rate in February that matched a 50 year low. We'll covert and the lockdowns obviously upended everything. And in the swing states, the jobs picture may ultimately decide the November 3rd election. What What are you expecting to see in this report will be the last report before the election day, so A crucial report, obviously, and we may still see a small gain. But it's pretty obvious that gains in terms of perils have been slowing in recent months, so I think what is it? What will be even more important is the jobs report off? At the state level that is coming out on the job between us. There's a lot of people that are coming back to work just simply because they lost doubles benefits at the end of July, when that program expired. So then I think, ah lot of people are losing jobs. And those losses are not directly related to the dynamic itself. Those job losses are happening because of the weakness in the economy. Because certain companies three open, but they don't need of many workers anymore because they simply on not sure if they're good service along the needed. So I think we're entering in a more ah, like traditional recessionary dynamic, even though the recession is over the recovery still very slow, and I think the labor market will lack an improvement in economic growth going forward. You've mentioned the benefits remind everybody when those benefits for people expire. So usually regular state benefits lust for 26 weeks. And Thiss Week. This week marks 26 weeks seems a lot of people started getting unemployment benefits in the midst off the condemning back in March in April, so a lot of people will simply exhausts regular unemployment benefits, and it's already happening. So they will have Teo get unpleasant benefits under federally funded special programs, and that will give them an extra 13 weeks. But what is happening right now? Is that a lot of people moving from regular being regularly unemployed into long term unemployment status? And that has its own, you know, but the point because When you're along someone employed, you start to lose skills if it makes it much harder to get a job. These were the issues that the former Fed chair Janet Yellin had to face in the previous extension. I think Jay Powell will face them, too. In this recovery. Do we get a good handle on just whose permanently unemployed At this point? I think the services sector is the really suffering much. One than goods producing sector. We saw a very sharp rebound in the manufacturing sector things getting back to normal simply because this is such a tremendous the lack off inventory, so they just need to catch up. At the same time in services. People are very slow to to get back to work because a lot of places are still closed. Oh, have limited capacity, things like rest, Strong said. People, obviously not traveling as much as they used to. So this is sector where we will see Ah lot of weakness going forward, and until we get a vaccine or an effective treatment for 19 will probably not going to see Jobs or the level of acidity going back to pre crisis levels. And how does seasonality fit into all this? If it does, so, we're entering a very interesting period in terms ofthe seasonality, so The holiday season is right around the corner, and that would police don't don't remind me. Yes. Yeah, Get you leased the ready. Okay, So I think that it's very important to look at this effective because During September October. Many companies, usually Hyatt workers right and killing the services of retail sectors, but well, they hired many people, as they usually do, though that's a big question, and I think the slow down and if the economy is telling us that that might not happen So the reported data will be very difficult to show strong increases in the next couple of months. I think that the reported data will be generated. Relative to regular patterns. So we already saw that in the retail sales report, elitist one and I think going forward. Carol's report claims jobless claims reports and probably also retail sales with what will show something claims.

Overseas Operations Bill: Government facing calls to rethink plan to 'decriminalise torture' by UK troops

"Torture has been prohibited under international law since nineteen forty eight and is enshrined in legal instruments such as the Geneva Conventions and the United Nations Convention Against Torture. But the British government is trying to push through the overseas operation bill which would introduce a stronger legal protection for UK soldiers serving abroad critics believe it will make overseas operations worse the victims of war crimes and for the UK standing in the world bill passed its second reading in Parliament on Wednesday and three Labor backbench peace had been sucked for voting against. Well Tracy joy is head of accountability and international cousy at freedom from torture, and she joins me on the line to tell us more good morning tracy. What does this bill exactly seek to achieve? Good morning to a gina the do a apparently according to the government seeks to provide greater protection for British troops against vacations claim that might have been brought from operations. That happened overseas more than five years ago. what we believe that it does actually is to create a barrier to justice with those he might have been subjected to war crimes by British troops in those are the operation. I mean, the government says that it is doing this for the soldiers but we've seen very very senior military personnel and ex personal come out to say that they'd gravely concerned about the signal. It sends I mean field marshals, generals, frontline veterans of expressed grave concerns that what are that precise objections? I think the objections that many hold is that and to summarize the words that you spoke in parliament that this legislation really is a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I think that the is acceptance that perhaps the prices that some soldiers have been involved in have taken Fawzi Long. But that really the problem of investigation and the government is seeking to legislate to solve the problem that would be better served through. BITTU. Protesters right at the beginning and more independent and speedy investigation I. mean the government denies that there will be any barrier to justice under these Nino's. It does say presumption against prosecution for torture and crime except in exceptional circumstances, what signal is the sending internationally It's very interesting that they say that but It seems unlikely that you would say that there's no buried to justice when actually they specifically introduced. Three layers of legal protection that would stop prosecutions that would've normally have preceded. And the signal that sins therefore is that they would be sick instances in which to torture would be deemed to be unexceptional and we find that quite startling. Actually, how could the government argue that torture could ever be unexceptional? I mean rape is excluded from from the provisions. That's obviously a good thing torture isn't does not mean that torture is a lesser crime. Well, that seems to be exactly the signal that the government is sending that I mean, obviously, it's excellent that sexual violence and raped or created and the Minister of Defense Been Wallace argued in parliament that the crimes that should never take place on the battlefield. Well, we would that torture should also never take place and it seems quite absurd that they would say out to give the impression that torture and other crimes against humanity as you say, Lesser Crime Than Sexual.

Data Begins To Provide Some Answers On Pregnancy And The Pandemic

"All considering our health more during the Koven 19 pandemic, But women who are pregnant as the Corona virus circulates through society may have even more concerns. Are they more vulnerable to the disease? And what about their babies? But in the early days of the pandemic, there was very little research to provide answers. Now a number of new studies and CDC reports are out and the picture is beginning to be more clear. Dr. Denise Jamison is the chair of obstetrics and gynecology at Emory University. She's also a member of the Kobe task Force of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Dr Jamison. Thanks for joining us Thanks so much. I want to start with a big overview. So many women were concerned early on if they were pregnant or just had a newborn of what this could mean for them and their babies. How worried if at all, should pregnant women and mothers of newborns be about Coben 19 at this point based on what science tells us Well, I think these recent findings over the last few weeks should be somewhat reassuring to pregnant women and their families. However, I still think there are many reasons to be vigilant about covert 19. It's still really important that pregnant women take measures to protect themselves, and it's also really important that pregnant women have access to cope in 19 vaccines as soon as they're available. Let's talk about some specific concerns Women had there was a fear that if a pregnant woman was covert positive, she might pass that along to her baby, either in utero or during childbirth. Do we know if that happens? Well, it seems to be able to cross the placenta and infect fetuses during pregnancy. However, the good news is that this doesn't seem to happen very often. And there isn't evidence that when this happens, there's an association with birth defects. The way we found with viruses like Sica, and those babies are generally okay despite being infected for the most part, the babies yes have done well. Pregnant women in general are more susceptible to respiratory infections and Koba 19 is obviously a respiratory disease. Do we know if Kobe has exacerbated respiratory issues and pregnant women? They're probably more likely to have severe disease if they're infected with Cove it But this increased risk is not nearly as dramatic as it is with some other respiratory infections such as influenza. Which seems to be something that it applies to the general population as well. People who are in some way have compromised health often find themselves more compromised when they get Cove it that's correct. Some of these studies are small. What caveats would you have to say about the limitations of what we know so far, Although we continue to learn more every day, I think they're important challenges to all the data. The biggest problem is that most of thie reports don't have an appropriate comparison group, so you have to be able to compare either. Pregnant women with Cove it to non pregnant women with Cove it or you need to be able to compare pregnant Cove it positive women too pregnant Koven negative women. And for many of these studies, they don't have an appropriate comparison group. There were some women wondering if they should avoid getting pregnant during the pandemic. Would you advise that toe? Wait till it's over. To try to have a baby? I would not recommend to delay in pregnancy. I think women can take measures to avoid Cove. It During pregnancy and to protect themselves during pregnancy and when to get pregnant is such a personal and complicated decision on this pandemic will probably be with us for a while, I would not advise delaying pregnancy solely on the basis of the covert pandemic. Dr Jameson and your job. Do you still work with patients? Yes, I am on labor and delivery. Today you are. Have you found that the experience of being pregnant or having a baby during the pandemic has Compromised or reduce the joy of pregnancy and delivery for any women. I hope it hasn't substantially reduced the joy of having a baby. But I do worry that with restrictions on visitation in the hospital and then also the social isolation after women go home from the hospital, I do think it's fundamentally change the experience of having a baby in a way that you wish it hadn't It sounds like yes. I look forward to a day when the pandemic is over, and we have a safe, available effective vaccine and we don't have to social distance. That's Dr Denise Jamison of Emory University. Thank you for coming on the program. Thank you for your interest in this topic.

RIP Business Suit?

RIP Business Suit?

"Tina Ob is a professor of management at Babson College and she says, a lot of students will come to her. You know before they're interviewed for the first internships or first jobs and they will ask like Bush should I wear this job. So she thinks about the question of like how professional and professional norms a lot when I asked most people what is the most big symbol of the business world and visit professionalism almost everyone says the business eventually and Tina started thinking about why in about where these norms come from also she herself had a special relationship with the business suit because before she was in academia Tina worked in banking and I absolutely were businesses because We think about the prototype of a banker is that you have a tailored suits white man play golf. I'm a black woman doesn't play golf. So I had to get the soup right and they was. I mean I had the best. They were beautiful suits and they were tailored. It was by putting on a crown almost I felt special I. Felt you don't have on my uniform. This is my beautifully tailored uniform and people perceive me differently. So now Tina works in academia and she loves researching things and so all of this got her thinking like wait why is the business suit? The thing that we all wear to work like what about kilts or row observe why not something else so she started tracing the business suit back through time all the way back to its origins in the sixteen hundreds it turns out we have Charles the second to thank for the suit he was the. King, of England four hundred years ago. Yes and at the time when he became king, the fashion in the royal courts was like very very over the top men were these huge poofy wigs and they had these big sleeves on their clothes and crazy colors because di was very expensive. So it was a sign you were wealthy men wore high heeled shoes but all of his over the top nece in the royal courts it was it was starting to cause some problems for Charles getting all this criticism from religious and economic leaders who were saying that the royal family there were morally Herat's overly decorated, and so he was looking for a way to try to. Present himself and As more restraints, the sewage back then were made from wool instead of silk, and even though the colors were still kind of like Easter and colors just all over the place. This was still super restrained at the time and it starts getting even more strain. So details on the codes when Charles the second I started wearing, them were quite long but they got shorter and shorter and shorter and eventually the. Colors that people in suits became more muted product. We see today or at least what we used to see I, mean I actually can't remember the last time I saw someone in a suit, and you know says, she can't remember the last time. She wore one I have on a workout Sir Yoga pants but you know what typically going to work I wouldn't have the song. Oh, it's the same for me talk. It's so nice, oh. Yeah. I can actually there's been a lot of talk on social media and in all of these articles think pieces about how much people have been loving dressing down Lali living that yoga pants life right and it's not like working from home is going away. I. Mean millions of offices are closed through the rest of the year and beyond and. Even for people who do go back to the office, the setups probably going to be pretty different probably fewer people some partitions, maybe less reason to suit up there. Also Tina says that now the people have tasted this yoga pants life going back is going to be hard. There's something to say about the sigh of relief the collective sigh of relief I think the world. That tells you that there was labor associated with getting dressed in a professional way. Tina says for now she is advising her students to still put in that Labor for job interviews in banking and consulting jobs, or at least take care of the top part that people are GonNa zoom suit jacket suit jacket. Exactly and you know the suit has survived four hundred years of change electricity, the combustion engine, the Internet two world wars the suit has survived. All of that is working from home really going to be the thing that takes it down death by Yoga. Pants, seriously towards yoga pants that killed the I'm on. I like the idea of the suit as King Kong. But you know I don't know Cardiff because the business has been around as you say for a very long time for four hundred years I mean. Things change and maybe this is the business suits swansong like maybe it's time for us to start wearing other kinds of close. WE'RE NOT GONNA be wearing suits forever right drew I put this all to Tina and she said, you know if you want to know the fate of the suit right now, you've got to talk to people who work in fashion right look at fashion person at twin watcher about what we're seeing from shoppers and what designers are

Why we must confront hard historical truths

"Not that long ago I received an invitation to spend a few days at the historic. Of James Madison. James Madison of course was the fourth president of the United States, the father of the constitution, the architect of the bill of rights and as a historian I was really excited. To go to this historic site because I understand and appreciate the power of place. Now, Madison called his estate monpellier and mom Pelia is absolutely beautiful is several thousand acres. Rolling Hills farmland forest with absolutely breathtaking views of the blue. Ridge. Mountains but it's a haunting beauty. because. Montpellier was also a slave labor camp. You see James Madison slave more than one hundred people over the course of his lifetime. And he never a single soul, not even upon his death. The centerpiece of Montpellier is Madison's matching. This is where James Madison grew up. This is where he returned to after his presidency. This is where he eventually died and the centerpiece of Madison's mansion is his library this room on the second floor where Madison conceived and conceptualized the bill of rights when I visited for the first time, the director of Education Christian coats. Cool. Why do took me almost immediately to the library. And it was amazing being able to stand in this place where such an important moment in. American history happened. But then after a little while they're Christian actually took me downstairs to the sellers of the. Mansion. Now in the sellers of the mansion, that's where the enslaved African Americans who manage the House spent most of their time. It's also where they were installing a new exhibition on slavery in America. and. While we were there Christian instructed me to do something I thought it was a little bit strange. He told me to take my hand and place it on the brick walls of the seller and slide it along until I felt these impressions or ridges in the face of the brick. Now Look I was going to be staying on site on his former slave plantation for a couple of days. So I wasn't trying to upset any white people. Because when this was over, I want make sure that I could get out. But as I'm actually sliding my hand along the seller war, I couldn't help but think about my daughters and my youngest one in particular who was only about two or three years old at the time because every time she hot out of our car, she would take her hand and slide it along the outside, which is absolutely disgusting and then. And if I couldn't get to her in time, she would take her fingers and pop them in the mouth which drive. Absolutely crazy. So this is what I'm thinking about what I'm supposed to be a historian. But then, but then I actually do feel these impressions in the brick I feel these ridges in the brick and it takes a second to realize what they are, what they are are tiny handprints. Because all the bricks at James Madison's estate were made by the children that he enslaved. And that's when it hit me. That The library in which. James Madison conceived and conceptualizes the bill of rights rests on a foundation of bricks. Made by the children that he enslaved. And? This. Is. Hard. History. It's hard history because it's difficult to imagine the kind of inhumanity. That leads one to enslave children to make bricks. Your comfort and convenience is hard history because it's hard to talk about the violence of slavery. The beatings, the whippings, the kidnappings, the forced family separations is hard history because it's hard to teach white supremacy. Which is the ideology that justified slavery. And so rather than confront hard history. We tend to avoid it. Now sometimes that means just. Stuff up. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that states rights was the primary cause of the civil war. That would actually come as a surprise. So the people who fought in the civil war. Sometimes. We try to rationalize hard history. When people visit Montpellier and by people in this instance, white people. When they visit mom appeal your and learn about Madison slaving people. They often ask. But wasn't he a good master? A good master. There is no such thing as a good master. There is only worse and worse her. And sometimes. We just pretend the past didn't happen. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say it's hard to imagine slavery existing outside of the plantation south no, it ain't. Slavery existed in every American colony slavery existed in my home state of New York for fifty years after the American revolution. Why do we do this? Why do we avoid confronting hard history? Literary performer and Educator Reggie. Gibson had the truth of it when he said that our problem as Americans. Is We actually hate history. What we love Is No style.

"Hello folks welcome to the L. R. I S. podcast series. My name is well Aitchison and this is going to be another one and our hopefully short series on the Labor and employment implications and the public safety workplace of covert nineteen. I have four things. I WanNa talk to talk to you about today. All four of them are sort of in the way of updates but there have been some significant developments so the first thing I want to talk about are the is the status of Kobe. Nineteen presumptive causation. Laws for workers comp purposes then want to talk about hazardous duty. Pay What we're seeing with regard to that third thing is. What's what's been the impact so far that we've seen of covid nineteen on the collective bargaining process. What sorts of deals are being? Cut Out there by public safety unions and the public safety employers with which they deal and then the fourth thing is going to be law enforcement specific development. We continue to have law enforcement officers around the country who are drawing a line in the sand and who are saying. I'm not going to enforce this emergency order of the governor. Whatever this might be It could be a people being required to wear masks or people being required to stay at home and I wanNA talk about in a little bit more detail this time what. The legal framework is of that issue. Okay so let's talk first about presumptive causation. Laws it's been a month since I've spoken to you about these and we've seen some changes but unfortunately not a lot and It's safe to say that right now the majority of states in this country do not have presumptive causation rules let's reset what's the presumptive causation. Rule it's a rule of workers compensation law that if you encounter a certain condition. He's almost all was diseases That it is presumed that that disease was caused by the job. It's only a presumption. The employer can overcome the presumption by proving that the disease or the condition love caused by off the job but presumptive causations really give employees a leg up With respect to establishing worker's compensation claims And when I say a leg up when you have a presumptive causation law. It's almost impossible for an employer to prove that the condition was not caused by the job so for example there are cases. I see them every month and we only put a few of them in our newsletter. I only rarely talk about them on the PODCASTS. The first Thursday podcast but there are cases out there. All the time involving firefighters in in firefighters have much richer set a presumptive cassation laws around the country so most of these cases are firefighter cases. So you see these cases. We have a firefighter who's had a heart attack. And His filed a workers. Compensation claim and the employer brings evidence into the workers compensation hearing where the employers well. Yeah I did have a heart attack but on the other hand he was a two pack. A day smoker. For thirty years he also had a high level of cholesterol and He was basically a heart attack waiting to happen. Didn't exercise was morbidly obese. You know whatever. The Constellation factors might day. And you'll see the workers compensation agencies saying to the employer. Yeah but you didn't prove that it wasn't caused by the job sometimes. Employers can prevail in those types of cases but not often and the result is that presumptive causation. Laws are expensive. You hear me talk in a couple of minutes about what's going on in California. The estimate is the covid nineteen presumption in California is going to cost. The state of billion dollars cost employers in the state. A billion dollars so these things are expensive. Employers typically have resisted them and Employees. Of course want them and we're seeing that debate played out in state legislatures around the country. So where are the Kobe? Nineteen presumptive causation. Laws around the country. And I'm just GonNa go in alphabetical order. Here it's not gonna be too long less but I wanNA talk about how some of these presumptions came into existence. Because there's some not small amount of controversy about that. So let's start with Alaska down in Alabama by the way let's talk about an Alaskan in Alaska. Alaska was an early adopter here April tenth governor. Mike Dunleavy signed into law Something that is known a SENATE BILL TO FORTY ONE. And it contains a conclusive presumption that a first responder who contracts Kobe. Nineteen after an amish job exposure got the diseases a result of an on the job exposure notice. I stressed the phrase conclusive presumption a conclusive presumption cannot be rebutted. So that means in Alaska if you're first responder and WHO's the first responder? Firefighter paramedic peace officer healthcare provider. If you are a first responder and you get cova. Nineteen on the job. All you have to do is prove that you had an on the job exposure to the disease and boom that is a workers compensation covered condition. That's the strongest presumption that is out there Really in the country is the one that's in place in Alaska right now Arizona. There's no presumptive causation in Arizona on May fourteenth so just a about a week ago or so Something known as the Industrial Commission in Arizona. that's part of the workers. Compensation System there issued what? It called an advisory statement. What was the advisory statement employers and? I'm quoting may not categorically deny covid nineteen claims and of quote really. That's the best you can do if you're going to be talking about presumptive causation. You come up with a rule that employers may not categorically deny Kobe nineteen clients. Well that's not GonNa get employees very far at all and my understanding is that the push for presumptive causation continues in Arizona Arkansas on April fourteenth. The governor nothing was passed in the legislature in In Arkansas the governor issued an order allowing first responders and healthcare workers to be eligible for workers comp now listen carefully but only if they can demonstrate a causal connection between their diagnosis and exposure to covid nineteen as a result of their employment. That's no presumptive causation. At all right. it requires the employee to show that the exposure caused the condition and just like a presumptive causation. Law is very difficult for an employer to overcome employee's pretty much can never show that exposure to a disease caused their condition. Why is that? Because there's so many other places you can be exposed to the same disease right so if if I were a first responder in Arkansas side look at Governor Acer Hutchison and say Jeez. Thanks a lot guy. You did absolutely nothing for US okay. What about California California? We have another executive order from a governor in this case is Governor Gavin newsom and he issued a an executive order that creates a presumption that covid nineteen incurred by frontline. Workers is caused by the job. Now this presumption is going to expire on July fifth. The California legislature has several bills the most prominent of which is known as Assembly Bill. Six sixty four appending that would make the The presumptive causation. Continue into the future. But I want to talk about the fact that this was done by executive order because in some places governors are getting tired of looking at legislatures just simply waiting around or debating or not meeting or doing or not doing whatever they're doing or not doing and they are issuing these sorts of executive orders. Are they legal? Maybe there hasn't been much of a challenge to them anywhere When we get to Illinois I'll talk about a very different type of challenge that was filed with respect to an executive order there but the sort of thing that governor newsom has done to issue this executive order. I have not seen that challenged in court. Now Governor Nuisance Executive Order. Far More expansive Than what went on for example in Alaska. It's more expansive in the sense that it applies to all frontline workers so not just first responders and medical personnel. But everybody. Who's out there. Who's basically bagging groceries or doing? Whatever it is they're doing to Keep the rest of us. from All sorts of different types of dire conditions all right Colorado Connecticut Delaware District of nothing is going on no presumptive causation in Florida on April one. The chief financial officer for the State of Florida issued a directive it only applies to state employees and the directive is optional. The state agencies can either choose to follow it or not follow it if they follow it it creates a presumptive causation. A the Florida League of cities which runs a worker's comp insurance trust that covers many cities and counties remember what? The state did only applies to state employees. The League of cities in Florida sent a letter to the state of Florida saying it would apply a presumptive causation rule for covid nineteen for the purposes of workers. Comp claims by first responders. But that's one insurance trust among many and the best of my knowledge. There's nothing going on in the Florida legislature by the way about a table of all this. I guess what I don't have it memorized. Got A table. And we're going to put the table Online on our website. So you'll be able to download it Georgia Hawaii Idaho has not seen anything. Then we get to Illinois in Illinois on April Thirteenth the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission announced an emergency amendment to its rules of evidence. These are the rules as to what's admissible and not admissible in a workers. Compensation hearing and this rule announced that if a first responder or frontline worker was diagnosed with covid nineteen during the state of emergency that it was presumed that the virus was caused by the job so effectively. What it did was to shift the burden of proof to employers to show off the job creation very quickly a group of employers Including the Eleanor Municipal League. So this includes public sector employers challenged the commission's decision. They obtained a temporary restraining order blocking the rules. And the commission has withdrawn the roles There's now a bill that's been introduced in the Illinois legislature about acid now no presumptive causation. Told you I tell you the legal theory that was used in Illinois by the Municipal League and it didn't have anything to do with the authority of the Workers Compensation Commission to announce this rule but rather the process by which it did allstate's have something called an administrative procedures act that require some to certain processes before they make rule changes and the court found here that the administrative procedures act was violated by the enactment of this emergency rule. Now could the state have defended that up the chain of the court system maybe the Municipal League Did what you would expect anybody who is trying to challenge something that is on a statewide basis to do and that is a cherry picked where filed a lawsuit it filed in an extremely conservative county in downstate Illinois reports. Were they got an extremely conservative judge. could they have a could the state? The Workers Compensation Commission have appeal at to the much more workers friendly Illinois Court of Appeals may be but they didn't and so now it's going to come down to what the legislature does Indiana Iowa. Nothing going on no presumptive causation. Kansas interesting story There were bills that were introduced in the Kansas. Legislature or at least being discussed not introduced In the Kansas legislature and then finally on April twentieth the Governor Laura. Kelly said you know what enough is enough? And She Directed the Kansas Department of Labor. Shays the executive for the Department of Labor To develop a regulation that would create a presumption that first responders and healthcare workers contracted Kobe. Nineteen on the job. If they were able to show that they were exposed to the condition. Kentucky we have another governor acting all on his own governor. Andy Bashir on April ninth. Another early adopter here is simply announced an emergency order that removal from work by a physician removal from work obey first responder for Covid nineteen was related to the job. Nothing in Louisiana. Nothing in Maine. Nothing in Maryland Massachusetts. There are bills pending in legislature and The Massachusetts Municipal League has weighed in opposing the legislation. And it's taking the position and I'm quoting. The solution is to require existing health plans to pay for all medical costs and to create fully paid covert nineteen hazard duty leave for all first responders preserving their regular earns sick-leave balances..

"labor" Discussed on Labor Relations Information System

"Your contract doesn't control the issue? What if there isn't a provision in state law that allows an employer to act unilaterally? Where do we next turn? What's the next question? We asked next question we ask is has the local Labor Board Your State Labor board or if you bargain under local ordinance. Your local Labor Board has the Labor board created such an exception by case law. Some have most have But you have to check that out than level of analysis for. Let's assume the contract doesn't control? Let's assume there's nothing in state law either by virtue of the statute itself or by virtue of Fiat from the Labor Board? Nothing in state law that waves the union's ability to bargain over unilateral changes and mandatory subject of bargaining then to the extent that the topic whatever. The topic is is mandatory. Negotiable the employer's going to have to bargain before it makes the change and a half to negotiate about both the decision and any mandatorily negotiable effects of the decision Now it could. Well be that somewhere down the road. We see Labor boards creating a covert nineteen exception to this notion of bargaining I do suspect that we're not going to see unions. Pitching a big fuss about this Because they're in the middle of the emergency just the way everybody else's we all know that but I will say that from a technical legal standpoint absent any right even in the contract to make emergency unilateral changes and mandatory subjects bargaining absent any such authority under State Law and employer technically has to bargain about these changes before implementing. So now let's go back to our list of ten issues The ten issues that I've indicated were saying employers wanting to make changes in our these mandatory subjects bargaining shift. Life sure obviously writes an hour's work issue Days off same answer work schedules. Same answer sickly policies. I checked off four different sickly policies. Same answers hours. Work Issue Secondary Employment Opportunities. Almost every state thanks. Secondary Employment has mandatory for bargain whether detectives can be assigned to patrol duties. I think a substantial change in the duties of Detectives. Very likely to be negotiable. And then lastly what about staffing Particularly in the police setting going from or to two-person cars Most states would find that not to be a mandatory subject of bargaining but would find the effects of that to be negotiable particularly. If you're going to two person cars The effects in terms of the potential for disease transmission between the officer and the officers partner. So there we have it that's Kind of the first one that we are saying We are saying employers wanting to make changes in mandatory subjects bargaining and to do so quickly next up a panoply of sick leave issues. Some of which are intertwined with workers compensation issues and I liked phrasing. These things ask questions. We sent her an email around this morning. By the way. If you're not on our email list do send a message into Info. At Elleray Dot Com. We sent an email with Some of what I'm talking about around and I've phrased many of these issues in terms of questions and I think really works pretty well so I sick leave question. If an employee has to be quarantined because of Kobe nineteen exposure or travel May or must the sick the employee you sick leave to cover the absence So what's going on out there on this issue? Well of course if an employee has to be quarantined because of Kobe nineteen exposure. That would seem to be a perfect use of cyclic under a collective bargaining agreement or under an employer's personnel practice That would would seem to be obvious. But from the employee standpoint understand that the employees isn't actually sick. And if you put them in a position where they are forced to use to draw down their sick leave In order to account for their absence during what may be a two week quarantine period. You're gonNA find some employees who may be reluctant to stay home who the employer wants to stay home and so what we are seeing out there and again there's no cases on any of this stuff yet. Okay what we are seeing out. There is employers moving to putting employees on some form of administrative leave with pay when the employee is being quarantined because of covert nineteen exposure. Or where the employee has traveled. Now I said some sort of administrative leave with some places are actually calling it administratively with bag. Some are calling it. Special sick-leave I've actually seen it referred to ask Corona virus sickly in some cases. The amount of this Paid time off. Think of justice bedtime off were the employees and drawing down from one of her his Pay Time off accounts like sick. Leave vacation the in some places. The amount of this time office capped Very commonly at two weeks at eighty hours some places we posted on our website today policy in Clackamas County Oregon clackamas county suburban Portland county. It's a metropolitan. County has a very large law enforcement function and Clackamas County. The length of the time is unlimited mo the special aid sickly is unlimited and then we're finding some employers taking the position that Employees are just going to have to burn up there only the. That's the minority from what I have heard. That seems to be fairly rare. Most employers are really stepping up to the plate here and saying you know it's just the right thing to do for employees to get a special form of paid time off whatever you call administratively with pay corona virus sickly special sick. Leave whatever you call it. Under these circumstances employees should not be burning down there. Leave accounts Second Question if a first responder contracts Kobe. Nineteen in the course of performing. Their duties is treatment for that and the wage loss associated with it covered by workers compensation or. I wish I had a good answer for year that I it comes down to a state-by-state analysis of what your Worker's compensation law looks like and here's why I say that some Workers Compensation Statutes and pensions detaches distinguish between injury claims and illness. Claims Injury claims the pretty obvious right as to whether or not the claim was incurred on the job. Illness claims tougher to tell whether or not you came down with an illness. Because on the exposure and so there are some states that Take the position that in order for a disease claim. An illness claim to be compensable. Under the workers. Compensation Law the employees risk of contracting. The disease must be higher and of different nature than the public's risk That for example is the approach. That's used in Ohio and many other states. Not Just Ohio. Under that sort of test is a first responders risk of contracting the disease higher than the general public or is would they first responder contract the disease in a different manner than the general public? That's going to be. It's not going to be a slam dunk okay. I don't WanNa say it's going to be a mountainous burden of proof but that is not going to be a slam dunk for public safety employees under that standard. So you're GONNA have to check and see whether or not standard like that is out there to find out what the default is. What's the default as to whether workers comp is going to cover employees who are who contract cope with nineteen in the course of performing their jobs. Now we we already see activity from other fronts. Three other fronts actually three other friends that a change the playing field a little bit on this and the first is we are seeing some employers just simply again step up to the plate here and say you know what our position is our position is that if we have a public safety employees comes down with Kobe. Nineteen that that is going to be presumed to be caused by the job. We're going to treat this essay. Presumptive causation condition The second area. We're seeing some sort of modification of this is We're starting to see some workers. Compensation entities Step up to the plate themselves and say we're going to treat covert nineteen as a presumptive causation condition and the best example. I can give to you is Something that was done on March eighteenth by the Director of Michigan's Workers Disability Compensation Agency. I'll post a link to it on our website Or Mark Fuller Valor. As will post the like to be completely honest there And what Michigan did was to adopt emergency rules that apply to first response employees who are exposed to Kobe. Nineteen what are those rule say It's simple it's one sentence long. I'll read it to you. A first response. Employee suffers a personal injury that arises out off and in the course of employment if the employee meets one of the following criteria. Then there's four that are listed. What are they. One is quarantined at the direction of the employer due to confirmed or suspected. Cova nineteen explosion to receive a covert nineteen diagnosis from a physician. S- three receives a presumptive positive Koba nineteen tasks or Ford. And it's an or it's not and receives a laboratory confirmed covert nineteen diagnosis. And yes. I did say number one that the simple quarantining of the employees at the direction of the employer is going to be treated as a compensable work injury in Michigan. So that's the second area and and I know that that This sort of move is being considered by pension. Boards Workers Compensation Boards elsewhere in the country. the third thing that we're saying is we are saying Unions tried to convince state legislatures to enact a presumptive causation. Laws that would lest cove nineteen right alongside lung conditions and heart disease and the like so far not much is happening on that front Not Not for the least of reasons is that most state legislature simply aren't in session and this may be something that's going to be done after the fact There was a fourth effort. Which I kinda put in a nice try department the National Fraternal Order Police petition the Labor Secretary Labor Secretary Scalia to have Cuban Nineteen covered by presumptive causation laws. I'll send you a link to the latter that they are posted a link to the letter that the F. Apiece from my standpoint that really falls under the Nice Try Department because the Labor secretary doesn't really have the ability to designate anything as Cova nineteen Or as a presumptive causation Condition because the Labor secretary doesn't deal with workers compensation issues much less worker compensation issues at the state and local level so far. I haven't seen that secretary. Scalia has answered the F. appease petition. But it's it's worth looking at the see what he has to say all right next up. F- I'm La and other family related issues. You've got a bunch of these out there first question if an employee is off work on approved. Fmla leave say it is child bonding leave. After child has been born Chan. The employer recall the employees from approved. Fm L. A. Leave and this one. I've talked to a bunch of lawyers about this both on management and labor side. And you know what all of us high priced lawyers or some high priced some lower price lawyers.

"labor" Discussed on Labor Relations Information System

"Hello folks welcome to the eller. Is podcast series? My name is Willie Aitchison and today. We're going to talk about the corona virus. Say I've been thinking of holding onto this podcast until our usual first Thursday podcast which comes out first Thursday of every month but So much has been happening. There have been so many developments around the country that I wanted to get you. This interim update on labor and employment issues that deal with corona virus. I fully expect that when two weeks comes around and we're doing our regular first Thursday podcast. We're probably going to do exactly the same thing and a ton will have changed between now and then And so much has changed for all of us right. Our lives are fundamentally different in Oregon this morning. The governor's shut down the state much like Illinois or California or an increasing number of states. That are out there. We have seen the work life of public safety. Employees fundamentally altered in a way that we have never seen before really even in the wake of nine eleven. We didn't see this degree of changes and we have Legislation that is coming in at the local level at the state level at the federal level. that impacts the Labor and Employment Rights of employees and employers were not yet of coursing any court cases. But they'll come. They'll be down the road and we see employers taking all sorts of measures to cope with not just suppressant effects of the virus but because of the trajectory of this virus what the future affects are going to be a week or two weeks or three weeks from now when things we are being told are going to get really really bad so with that let's dive into the Labor and employment issues that we're hearing about here at L. S. You may have others if you do. Please let us know. Send us an email at Info at L. Dot Com. I would love to be able to make this at least one clearinghouse where people can go to and get up-to-date information on what's going on with Labor and employment issues and the corona virus. How case what are we saying? First of all. Let's talk about bargaining issues and there are a ton. We have employers wanting to make unilateral changes in all sorts of things to make them now not to give any advance notice But to make the changes before the end of the day or by the next day or whatever it might be what are we saying being changed out there while on the law enforcement side we are seeing changes in shift lights There's a lot of interest nationally in moving employees to twelve hour shifts some versions of some version of a twelve hour shift And when I say some version they can be anything from two on two off three on three off some folks doing to on three off to on three off or three on three off at whatever. There's so many different configurations for Twelve Hour Chef. A one thing you need to remember about a twelve hour shift is it causes a greater amount of work than a regular forty hour workweek. A twelve hour shift produces somewhere around pending on. How you count Twenty one hundred ninety hours of work per year where a forty hour workweek produces if you want to be absolutely precise Two thousand eighty six hours and some change in hours per year. So you have roughly on one hundred one hundred ten additional hours of work that are generated by twelve hour shift. What you do without well. We don't know what people are going to do with them in the time of Corona virus. But we do know what they've done with them. Historically with twelve hour shifts some folks of simply ignored them. They just simply go to the twelve hour shift. The twelve hour shift can fit under the section seven K. exemption on under the say something. You configure it correctly. They just simply accept the fact that you're going to have one hundred ten hours additional work on a twelve hour shift Employers love that of course employees from their standpoint The ones who have accepted this view the benefits of the twelve hour shift as compensating for that. Those additional hours. That's not the way most people have done without. Most people have gone to some sort of system that balances out the hours over time and the two most common are some folks will work and eight hour shift into the twelve hour schedule do so. Every couple of weeks That works to balance out the twelve hour shift. Others will simply give an adjusting amount of compensatory time off somewhere down the road So that In the end the employees work two thousand eighty six or eight or eighty would have however. You're counting hours per year And it's very common to see twelve hour shift configuration more employees. Get an additional ninety. Six hours are one hundred ten hours of time that they can use over the course of the year. That's the way people have done it. Historically what are the advantages of a twelve hour shift and crisis time like this well There several of them. First of all when you're dealing with an infectious disease you have employees who are showing up in cohorts So theoretically they could only in fact people who are working on the same shift and so there's somewhat of a limitation to the transmission of the disease a second benefit quite apart from disease element of it is from an employer standpoint. Employees have typically fewer breaks on a twelve hour shifts. Not so much. Fewer breaks as fewer break minutes per day. So they're available for work more. Also from both standpoint of an employer and an employee this cohort notion gives you continuity of supervision that you frequently don't have with an eight or a ten or eleven or nine hour shift or whatever else Might be out there. There's a bunch of different advantages to a twelve. Hour shift disadvantage. Of course. Is You get tired on a twelve hour shift in the long term? Studies aren't very optimistic about The health implications of a twelve hour shift on employees particularly long-term twelve hour shifts. We are also saying changes and shifts in the fire service less so because majority of firefighters are already on the ideal shift For such a situation which is a twenty four hour shift but there are some firefighters most prominently the Fire Department of New York who are not on twenty four hour shifts who and who have now moved to twenty four hour shifts There is also talk in the ORC about moving. Ems personnel who are not in the fire department. There there's a separate apartment moving. Ems personnel to twenty four hour shift. We don't know that yet. So that's the first of the big changes we see. Employers wanting to make changes shift likes very similarly a saint category really changes them days off days off. Configurations cancelled days off that. Were saying changes in work schedules. Apart from going to the Twelve hour shift. We see some going to tense and the like the fourth of changes is whether an employer can force employees who are symptomatic to go home. V very related like Cannon Employer Force employees whose family members are symptomatic to go home Dairy similarly can an employer force employees. Who have been exposed to corona virus either by virtue of travel or by virtue of actual exposure with someone who test positive for the disease whether they can force to those individuals to go home Seventh what we've seen some employers wanting to make changes in their sickly policies. The circumstances under which sickly can be used eighth There are some employers particularly. This is true it seems to be on the East Coast who are simply shutting down secondary employment opportunities including canceling all secondary employment Knife were saying a bunch of departments most prominently here. Lapd Where detectives are being assigned to patrol duties or an interim step were saying whether detectives can be required to report to work in uniform rather than plain clothes in the event there needed for patrol functions and then lastly tenth we are seeing Staffing changes Particularly moving away from or in some cases moving towards two person cars in law enforcement. So what are the General Rules about? These sorts of universal unilateral changes What what can you expect to see a corridor Labor board or an arbitrator look at to decide whether or not an employer has the right to make these changes and it's very much a triaging sort of effect? I think that you're going to say first of all does the contract or the Memorandum of understanding if you're in a state that has emily us. Instead of collective bargaining agreements. Does the contract have an emergency or force? Measure clause that covers the issue force. Mushir basically kind of means Act of God. Think of it kind of like that So does contract say something about whether the employer can act unilaterally under some circumstances and would these circumstances fit so that that's obviously the first place you turn with any unilateral change issue. Is You ask? Does the contract control this And some do most dome Most collective bargaining agreements don't have Emergency clauses and and it's very where to see force measure clauses. I can by the way along pronounced mispronouncing force measure for the rest of this podcast. I will so wait for it So you don't see too many contracts with those clauses so that gets us into our secondary level of analysis. Let's assume the contract doesn't cover the issue? Secondly is there a provision in state law that allows employers to act unilaterally in a particular area in the event of an emergency so there there are some state laws where basically the employers allowed to fundamentally disregard collective bargaining agreement if an emergency is declared Florida? I think it's the most prominent example of that there are other state collective bargaining laws that allow some unilateral changes. California. I think is probably the most prominent example of this There's an emergency clause in the California state collective bargaining law there. It's called the Meyer milius Brown after 'em Mba. There's an emergency clause that allows an employer to act unilaterally to make changes that aren't specified in the collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the employer to violate specific clause that's in the contract but allows the employer to change things that are not specifically referenced in the Clause The M MBA California law requires free change notice to unions of change and Post Change Post Implementation Bargaining And that's I think is going to be where you see these emergency. Clauses and collective bargaining agreements are. Choose me state laws. That's going to be the predominant. Form of the emergency clause is something like that pre change notice post chain bargaining And an employer is GONNA be allowed flexibility to make changes and things that aren't in the collective bargaining agreement. The National Labor Relations Act has an emergency exception. It's thought of as being though an economic Exigency EXCEPTION. It's not a broad-based emergency exception. So it's not quite clear. What State Labor Board State? Local Labor boards are going to do with case law under the National Labor Relations. Act We've got to say okay. So that secondary a level of analysis. But.
