Prior highlights from AccelPro Employment Law:
With Narcisa Przulj, Partner at Sandberg Phoenix
Cannabis law is an emerging field in employment law. Marijuana is now legal for recreational use in more than 20 states, and that number will continue to grow.
Employers face the complicated proposition that a substance that was illegal throughout our country’s history is now legal. What does that mean for the workplace? Should employers test for it in states where recreational use is legal? What does the law say about jobs with safety concerns?
Narcisa Przulj, a partner at Sandberg Phoenix counsels employers as they wrestle with these changing laws. In this interview, Przulj explains the perils of testing, the mitigating factors of safety and government contracts, and the importance of having consistent policies.
With Stacy Hawkins, Professor at Rutgers Law
This episode explores what the ruling in the Harvard-UNC Supreme Court case means for workplace diversity.
Stacy Hawkins, a professor at Rutgers, walks us through key concepts to understand the differences between race-conscious college admissions and workplace diversity hiring efforts; discusses the search for a hiring case similar to the admissions case; and lays out her passion for reviving the role-model theory as a strategy to increase the diversity of workplaces.
Hawkins also explains how she transitioned from a career in private practice to being a professor, commentator and thought leader and offers practical advice for anyone hoping to make a career change.
