the Sixth Circuit faced a challenge to the district court's grant of plaintiff-retirees' motion for summary judgment in their suit under the Labor-Management Relations Act and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), claiming that they were entitled to fully funded, lifetime health care benefits. As satated in the decision: "In the 1993 Cap Agreement, the parties agreed 'to limit [Detroit Diesel]'s contribution toward retiree health benefit premiums' without providing for an expiration date for the limitation.  This indicates the broad shift made by the Cap Agreements, ...

Concurring Opinions » Bob Morse's Stunning Complacency
Why is Bob Morse, USWR’s ranking guru, so unafraid of competition? There’s plenty of evidence that his rankings are fragile – for example, changes at the “bottom” of the scale have unexpected influences on schools at the top because the magazine engages in a statistically bizarre forced normalization – and that they measure factors that have little relevance to an underlying “quality” measure of importance in the market for legal jobs.  But he persists in acting like an incumbent politician, prioritizing optics over real reform. Here’s an example.  A few weeks back, Bob Morse ... market research, surveys and trends
Why lay off firemen first? « Don Surber
From the Associated Press: “On Saturday night, the White House released a letter Obama sent to congressional leaders of both parties asking for nearly $50 billion in emergency aid to state and local governments to fend off ‘massive layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters’ and to prevent a possible double-dip recession.” Why are the teachers, police officers and firefighters going to be the first ones to be laid off? The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the government at all levels had 23,370,000 employees on the payroll in May — up by 742,000 from May 2009. Private sector employment saw ... market research, surveys and trends


Storm's California Labor & Employment Law Archives
AB 1825, the law that requires employers with more than 50 employees to train their managers on sexual harassment, is now in effect. But with the little guidance it gets, I’ve had a lot of questions. Who can do the training? Can you do the training? What does it have to cover? Who is a supervisor according to this law? Etc. etc. Hopefully these regulations will provide some guidance. According to the article linked above, California licensed attorneys can do the training (all-righty then). The trainer should be able to cover: (A) what is unlawful harassment; (B) how to intervene when harassing behavior occurs in the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research - Study: U.S. workers put in most hours - August 31, 2001
Lawrence Jeff Johnson -- the chief labor market economist who has led the ILO team in producing its new "Key Indicators of the Labor Market 2001-2002" study -- also says American workers are, per person, more productive than their counterparts in other countries. "But we're not the most efficient, when you compare it per hour, looking at the Belgians and the French." Weigh in on the ILO's study finding: Are you working longer hours now than you were 10 years ago? It seems almost cruel to mention this to our Stateside readers on Labor Day weekend, but Johnson says the Europeans' comparatively ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Kagan Opposed Nationwide Ban on Assisted Suicide, Papers Show
June 5 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan as an aide to former President Bill Clinton said that federal legislation criminalizing doctor-assisted suicide was a “fairly terrible idea,” according to newly disclosed documents. Kagan’s hand-written note was included among 46,500 pages of records the William J. Clinton Presidential Library released yesterday. The documents shed new light on Kagan’s views on social issues including affirmative action, gun control and cloning. The assisted-suicide note was prompted by Oregon’s 1997 enactment of a right-to-die law, which stirred an ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Fred Malek: It's not the 'Jew-counting,' it's the deception
Thursday. The recap: Fred Malek, who in 1971 aided President Richard Nixon by naming the "ethnics" in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, has become chairman of Gov. Bob McDonnell's Commission on Government Reform and Restructuring and chairman of the new conservative group the American Action Network. It's the former job, along with the release of new memos from the Nixon White House, that has sparked a new round of attacks on Malek. Why is this a story? I've had some trouble figuring that out. Malek's work from 39 years ago has haunted him since it was reported by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Employment Opportunity ...
In the 1960s, Americans who knew only the potential of "equal protection of the laws" expected the president, the Congress, and the courts to fulfill the promise of the 14th Amendment. In response, all three branches of the federal government--as well as the public at large--debated a fundamental constitutional question: Does the Constitution's prohibition of denying equal protection always ban the use of racial, ethnic, or gender criteria in an attempt to bring social justice and social benefits? In 1964 Congress passed Public Law 82-352 (78 Stat. 241). The ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
