As I finally flew home last week, I sat beside Jeff Smagacz, the owner of an engineering firm, RMG.

Legal Alert/Article
March 3, 2015, previously published on February 4, 2015
Crazy as it seems, highly publicized Pandemic, Ebola and now Measles concerns are good for the U.S. Each time our short attention span is directed to the latest disease concern, we briefly recognize the seriousness of such concerns and improve national and individual capacity to respond.

A recent post appearing on U.S. Labor Department's blog begins, "The federal tipped minimum wage has been $2.13/hour since 1991. That's right - it's been the same for nearly a quarter century."

Legal Alert/Article
February 27, 2015, previously published on January 30, 2015

HTMLDon’t tell Me That It Couldn’t Happen at Your Workplace
Howard A. Mavity; Fisher & Phillips LLP;
Legal Alert/Article
February 27, 2015, previously published on January 27, 2015

Poor judgment results in experienced craft workers skipping a step and getting killed. Poor judgment results in employees or managers engaging in sex...

 

HTMLHonesty Never Goes Out of Style
Howard A. Mavity; Fisher & Phillips LLP;
Legal Alert/Article
February 27, 2015, previously published on December 28, 2014

Legal Alert/Article
February 27, 2015, previously published on January 5, 2015
I recently read a fictional account of a 1918 flu-like pandemic which shut down basic services for an extended period. I come from a less conspiratorial perspective, but the Annapolis grad author raised some valid points and painted an all too vivid picture of how badly people might behave.
