Guest:

Stefanie K. Johnson, Ph.D., associate professor of management at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the restaurant industry files more harassment claims than any other industry. In fact, 90% of women and 70% of men have acknowledged experiencing some form of sexual harassment while working in restaurants.

What fuels this trend and what can HR personnel in the industry do to reduce the risk of such incidents within their establishment?

In this episode of HR Break Room, organizational leadership and diversity expert Stefanie K. Johnson, Ph.D., joins hosts Caleb Masters and Chelsea Justice to discuss:

  • why sexual harassment happens more frequently in the restaurant industry
  • the differences HR professionals in this industry face, compared to other industries
  • how HR personnel in the restaurant industry can create policies to mitigate exposure within their organizations
  • how HR can help facilitate a safe and healthy workplace culture for all employees

Phillip B. Wilson, president and general counsel of the Labor Relations Institute

On Sept. 14, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) published a notice of proposed rulemaking intended to clarify what constitutes a joint-employer relationship between two businesses. Franchises, construction companies and organizations that use temporary or contract labor are among the employers that will be impacted most directly.

In part one of our HR Break Room conversation with Phillip B. Wilson, we defined the proposed new joint-employer rule and how it is different from the standard set by the Browning-Ferris case. How can HR prepare for these changes so that your workforce remains compliant?

In part two of this two-part episode of HR Break Room, Phil Wilson of the Labor Relations Institute joins hosts Caleb Masters and Chelsea Justice to discuss:

  • the impact the proposed new joint-employer rule may have on employers
  • why it’s so important for HR to watch the outcome of the ruling
  • how organizations can prepare for potential changes in the relationship between employers and contract employees
