Liz Johnston

Show Topic:

Authenticity is key to having an inclusive work environment. But studies show that upwards of 60% of your workforce is likely covering some aspect of themselves.

What is covering? Coined in 1963 by Erving Goffman, the use of the term covering is increasingly used today for when individuals manage or downplay their differences and aspects of their true identity in order to “fit in.”

Examples of covering can include everything from hiding one’s sexual orientation or group affiliations to altering their appearance and grooming habits.

On this episode of HR Power Hour join Tawny as she talks to Verrill Labor and Employment lawyer Liz Johnston as they talk about what covering in the workplace looks like, how it is sabotaging DEI plans, and the legal implications of covering in the workplace.

About The Guest:

A regular contributor to Verrill’sTaking Care of HR Business blog, Liz handles a variety of employment matters including working with businesses of all sizes to ensure that their policies are in compliance with the latest legal updates and are working effectively for the organization in practice.

Liz also advocates for clients facing claims before state and federal courts, the Maine Human Rights Commission, and the Maine Workers’ Compensation Board.
