In episode 93, Coffey talks with David Miklas about recent news items affecting human resources.

They discuss the possibility of new employment law claims because of tort reform legislation and best practices to avoid litigation from hungry plaintiffs’ attorneys; the social media backlash to MillerKnoll’s CEO’s “rant” at a company Zoom meeting and whether she deserved the public flogging she’s received; the implications of a report claiming many people are still accessing their former employers’ accounts long after termination; the risks of ChatGPT usage for company business; and the practical issues surrounding the employment practice of sending remote work overseas.

‘Leave pity city,’ MillerKnoll CEO tells staff who asked whether they’d lose bonuses (NPR)
