WIRTW #485 (the “what I’m listening to this week” edition)

A few weeks ago I listed my five favorite podcasts, and asked you for some suggestions to add to my listening queue.

Had I waited a month, Hostile Work Environment would have topped the list.
Each week, Marc and Dennis will bring true stories of wacky, grotesque, and just plain bizarre workplace happenings. And while we hope that you find these cases as interesting and amusing as we do — and laugh along with us in the telling — make no mistake, we’ll also be bringing analysis and legal discussion of those cases.
Two episodes in, they have not disappointed. You cannot go wrong discussing an employee’s fear of the mark of the beast, or a company that disciplines poor performers by spanking them with yard signs.

If you’re reading this, I know you’re an employment law and HR nerd (it’s okay to admit it; I came to grips with it a long time ago). Do yourself a favor a jump over to, or your podcast app of choice, and queue up the first two episodes. I guarantee that your daily commute will thank you for it.

Here’s what I read this week:



HR & Employee Relations

Wage & Hour
