    He's Here, He's There, He's Every Effingwhere, Jon Hyman, Jon Hyman! (Another Ted Lasso Discussion)

    Our friend Jon Hyman joins once us to dissect the employment law issues in our favorite show, Ted Lasso! This time through the end of Season 2.

    SPOILERS ABOUND

    We discuss Nate's descent into darkness, the fallout of Sam's big choice, Trent Crimm, Independent, and much much more.

    Most importantly, we discuss mental health in sports and at work. If you or someone you know needs support, here's a list of resources that can help, shamelessly stolen from Jon's LinkedIn page:

    National Alliance on Mental Health: nami[dot]org; info@nami[dot]org; 800-950-NAMI; or in a crisis, text "NAMI" to 741741

    Department of Health & Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration: samhsa[dot]gov; 800-662-HELP (4357)

    National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: suicidepreventionlifeline[dot]org; 800-273-8255

    Other than letting employees know about these resources, what else can employers do to help ensure that employees have the support and resources they need now and in the future? I have five suggestions.

    1/ Check in with your employees to make sure they are doing okay.

    2/ Check the benefits available to your employees, including EAPs and mental health and counseling services.

    3/ Revisit paid-time-off policies and consider providing employees the time they need to take care of themselves and their families.

    4/ Consider holding town hall or all-employee meetings that focus on mental health awareness.

    5/ Small gestures of kindness can go a long way to make employees feel appreciated and alleviate stress.
