Emily Waddell – Supreme Leak: Employment Lessons Learned


Download the Show Audio Here

Show Topic:

While the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization has led to significant media buzz concerning the Supreme Court’s role as law interpreter, the division of rights under state and federal law, as well as social activism generally, the draft ruling also reminds HR Professionals about some important policies and practices.

What are those policies and practices you may ask? In this episode of HR Power Hour, join co-host Tawny Alvarez as she talks to Labor and Employment Attorney Emily Waddell of Verrill concerning the importance of confidentiality agreements at work, how the National Labor Relations Act can effect an organization seeking to restrict employee discussion about social justice matters, as well as revisiting the protections afforded to employees who talk at work about their religious beliefs (which may or may not be directly tied to social justice issues).

Join us on the next episode of HR Power Hour as we discuss each of these important factors as they relate to the leak of the draft opinion relating to the proposed overturning of Roe v. Wade.
