    The Joke- Men and Women Are Unequal in Pay- It's a Fact!

    The Joke- Men and Women Are Unequal in Pay- It's a Fact!

    In this episode of the Employee Survival Guide®, Mark discusses the continuous pay disparity among female and male employees.  Mark shares two recent studies that support the conclusion that women earn 80 cents on the dollar in comparison to men.  He explores several explanations for the cause of the pay disparity.  Mark advocates that the facts speak for themselves- men do not want women to be paid equally.  Employees 30 years and younger actually have the solution- they share their compensation information with one another in order to get around the employer's wall of pay secrecy.  Mark offers the solution that all employers should disclose pay compensation for all employees.  There is more financial benefit to "say your pay" than to hide it.

    Employees Are Losing A Big Opportunity to Change Work Forever

    Corporate Empathy or Just Plain Old Apathetic Employment Practices

    Corporate Empathy or Just Plain Old Apathetic Employment Practices

    In this episode of the Employee Survival Guide®, Mark discusses the recent trend by employers to provide empathy training to managers.  Mark argues that this is just an attempt by companies to keep employees from jumping ship to the next employer during this employee run economy.  He further argues that what employees really want is to trust their employers and stop fearing if they will be placed on a performance improvement plan or fired without a reason. Mark argues to eliminate the employment at will rule and replace it with a "just-cause" termination rule for all employees.  This new rule would create more security and the type of trust where corporate empathy can really strive.

    The De Minimis Value of Religious Freedoms At Work

    The De Minimis Value of Religious Freedoms At Work

    In this episode of the Employee Survival Guide®, Mark discusses the  myth that employees have a right to religious accommodation at work.  The fall out from the vaccine mandate is that no, employees do not have a right to religious accommodation because employers can assert the minimalist of an explanation to deny such an accommodation.  Learn how the U.S. Supreme Court let this happen and why the Court is unsettled with that decision.
