WIRTW #542 (the “Scared. Ashamed. Crippled.” edition)


A few days ago, Mark Goldstein, an attorney at Reed Smith, tweeted me (and others) this:

 https://www.law.com/2019/02/12/scared-ashamed-crippled-how-one-lawyer-overcame-living-with-depression-in-big-law/

If you read on thing this week, read Mark's article, 'Scared. Ashamed. Crippled.': How One Lawyer Overcame Living With Depression in Big Law. We are in the middle of a mental health crisis in America. The more we talk openly about it, the more it becomes de-stigmatized, and the more comfortable those suffering will be to come forward and seek the help they need. It took a lot of courage for Mark to write this article. If you are suffering with mental health issues, or know someone who is, use Mark's example to ask for help. As Mark says, "You are not alone." We are here to help you, and will gladly do so, without judgment or scorn. 

Here's what else I read this week:

Discrimination

HR & Employee Relations

Technology

Wage & Hour

Labor

OSHA & Safety
