New “Employment Law Now” Podcast Episode Released!

Good morning – I just released a brand new “Employment Law Now” podcast episode!   In today’s episode, I talk with my Cozen partner, David Barron, about what employers should consider when it comes to employee marijuana use, and also discuss two significant developments from the NLRB on independent contractors and individual employee gripes in the workplace.
