I like your timeliness and the fact that I find things here I don't find elsewhere. Thanks.

Had an opportunity to meet and listen to Phil in this week's CUE Conf. His presentation was an absolute home run - which is very appropriate for the host city - home of the Louisville Slugger. This information clearly focuses on "preventive medicine" which should eliminate or greatly minimize the risk of any serious "illness" - Left of The Boom is a great way to show importance of being pro active and what happens when we wait to react. Great job !

Refining The Definition of “Employee”

Brishen Rogers

Brishen Rogers

Pro-union law professor and former SEIU organizer Brishen Rogers has penned a treatise for the American Constitution Society suggesting legislative changes to “expand and clarify” the meaning of the term “employment.” His suggestions include:

  1. Redefine employment per the “suffer or permit” test and specify that the “suffer or permit” test defines employment very broadly;
  2. Define workers in certain highly fissured industries as the legal employees of firms who contract with them individually for labor, and/or the joint employees of user firms who obtain their labor through subcontracting or franchising arrangements;
  3. Develop concrete guidance for courts to apply in other industries, or direct an expert agency to do the same; and
  4. Place the burden of proof on the party seeking to avoid employment status and implement other procedural and remedial reforms.
