In this new podcast episode, recent cases and news from the world of Labor & Employment Law will be discussed, including:

SpaceX v. NLRB – The NLRB issued a complaint against SpaceX and in response, SpaceX filed its own lawsuit claiming that the entire structure of the NLRB is unconstitutional. This could get interesting

Johnson v. Federal Information Systems, Inc. – In this case, an employee was discharged after making a complaint of discrimination, which sounds like a classic retaliation claim except for one key fact.

Ledesma v. Orland Park Wedding Center, Inc. – What should you do if an employee discloses mental health conditions and asks for a leave of absence?

Galette v. Avenue 365 Lending Services LLC – Can an employee make an accommodation request that alters their job duties?
