00:03
so the trends employment litigation deal
00:06
with people going through various
00:08
transitions for example sometimes people
00:10
having children can can create certain
00:14
traumatic situations and they will need
00:16
help from their employers or work
00:19
through certain issues with the
00:20
employers it may be to care for a an
00:24
elderly person an elderly or sickly
00:26
parent or family member that can become
00:28
a strain on both the employer and the
00:31
employee and I think that there are laws
00:33
that have been passed more recently
00:35
amendments to the Family Medical Leave
00:37
Act and in Massachusetts certain other
00:41
statutes that have been passed to give
00:44
employees certain rights in that regard
00:46
so it’s important that the employer and
00:49
the employee work together and try to
00:51
work out a plan that works for both of
00:54
them whether it’s starting later leaving
00:57
early or whether it’s working more
00:58
remotely I think one of the trends in
01:01
today’s workplace with younger people is
01:04
that they’re just used to working
01:05
remotely they don’t take it as even
01:07
necessarily benefit they take it as a
01:09
given which I think often times some
01:11
employers that are that grew up in a
01:14
more traditional environment find that
01:15
to be more challenging so making sure
01:18
that if someone is working remotely that
01:20
they’ll that they’re working
01:21
productively and in a way that provides
01:25
the employer with what they need is a
01:27
challenge and I think it requires some
01:29
flexibility and some policymaking on
01:32
both sides and communication on both
01:35
sides so that it continues to work for
01:37
for both as I say both sides
