  • Your First Response to a Crisis Might Be Your Next Crisis - The Takata Airbag Recall

    18 Nov 2014 | 1:29 pm
    Recently, several automobile manufacturers have issued recalls for potentially defective airbags. These recalls are certainly crises for the automobile companies, but those recalls are not the most potentially devastating crises unfolding. As a New York Times article describes, the airbag manufacturer, Takata, apparently knew, based on actual airbag testing ten years ago, that their airbags posed significant dangers to crash victims. Takata’s response to that knowledge was, allegedly, to hide the test results and leave the problem uncorrected. That decision – that response to a crisis…
  • IPv6, a Revolution for Your Network?

    18 Nov 2014 | 1:21 pm
    This article originally appeared on the BAMA at Work website, and is reprinted here by permission of the Author, Brenda Truelove. What do the WWII Allied invasion on the beaches of Normandy and IPv6 have in common? Answer: On June 6, we remember both the launch of the WWII Allied forces D-Day invasion, and the launch of the new 128-bit hexadecimal number protocol, IPV6. The former happened in 1944 on the beaches of Normandy, and the latter in 2012 on networks worldwide. IPv6 is an updated way to assign IP addresses, which are unique numbers for internet-connected devices. These two events,…
  • Understanding Avian Flu - Key Facts

    18 Nov 2014 | 7:57 am
    The European Commission has recently adopted protective measures to try to contain a bird flu outbreak after new cases were reported in the UK and the Netherlands. The measures include killing animals in infected areas and banning sales of poultry products from those areas. The Dutch government has reported the "highly contagious" H5N8 strain at a poultry farm there, and the UK reported a case at a duck farm in East Yorkshire, of which the Commission said was "probably identical". On 17 November 2014 the Commission adopted interim protective measures for the Netherlands and for the United…

    24 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    If you wonder why American workers need protection from workplace bullying, consider last week’s decision by a federal appeals court in Chicago regarding a 51-year-old plant  manager who was fired by Sun Chemical Corp. in 2009.

    As the holiday season approaches, the U.S.  Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Chicago has released a decision that harkens back to the working conditions of Victorian England which inspired Charles Dickens. George Widmar, 51, was a plant manager for 16 years who was fired in 2009 by Sun Chemical’s National Manufacturing Manager, Keith Roberts. Widmar was denied […]
  • EEOC Snubs Age Discrimination – Again

    Patricia Barnes
    21 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Yet again, the EEOC in 2014 devoted a disproportionately small percentage of its resources toward litigating age discrimination complaints. The EEOC filed 133 merits lawsuits during FY 2014, compared to 131 in 2013 and 378 a decade ago. Merits lawsuits include direct suits and interventions by the EEOC alleging violations of the substantive provisions of […]

    Patricia Barnes
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:09 pm
    The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission logged approximately five percent fewer discrimination complaints in Fiscal Year 2014 than the year earlier. The EEOC received 88,778 private sector charges in FY 2014, compared to 93,727 in 2013 and 99,412 in 2012. Does this reflect an improving economy or is it a sign of difficulties within the […]
