    Ep. 067 - Why I can't take off during blackout dates?

    Ep. 067 - Why I can't take off during blackout dates?

    Natasha, Jenna and Gip the Realtor vents about "Why I can't take off during blackout dates?" Blackout dates are most common in retail, accounting, sales and marketing companies. During the blackout dates employees cannot take those days as the companies need all employees working during this time. Maaannnn we got to do something different than seniority get to take days off first!! Jenna and Natasha cover the Employment Law from Texas made significant changes effective September 2021 around sexual harassment. Under the new law, the statute of limitations for filing a charge of sexual harassment is increased from 180 days to 300 days from the date of alleged harassment. The expanded limitations period only applies to sexual harassment claims based on conduct that takes place after September 1, 2021. Under the new Section 21.141 of the Texas Labor Code, the sexual harassment protections apply to employers that have one or more employees. With the expanded definition of “employer,” virtually all Texas workplaces are covered by the sexual harassment laws. Natasha and Jenna discuss, "Work one job with higher pay instead of several jobs to make more money." Pratchets, ya'll are stretching yourselves thin with all these jobs you're working and not making enough to cover your lifestyle.

    Ep. 066 - Offensive Shit that happens at Work

    Natasha, Jenna and Gip the Realtor vents about "Offensive Shit that happens at Work." There are a lot of things that happen in the workplace that comes off very offensive with things people say or do. We don't discuss these things openly enough so that people understand how to handle us/you in the workplace. Do black people raise red flags when people offend us? Jenna and Natasha covers the Employment Law from Colorado amended the Ban the Box law applying it to all private employers instead of employers with 11 or more employees. Employers can no longer disqualify job applicants with criminal records without first considering their qualifications. Colorado also signed into law"Gender Identity Expression Anti-Discrimination Act." The Act updates Colorado’s nondiscrimination provisions applicable to individuals seeking protection on the basis of “sexual orientation,” including by adding the terms “gender expression” and “gender identity” to 48 areas of state law (e.g., employment, housing, public accommodation) that prohibit discrimination against members of a protected class. Natasha and Jenna discuss, "How to ask for help from your coworkers." It is very conducive to the success of your career to ask people for help.

    Ep. 065 - Wanting to be Recognized for my Work

    Natasha, Jenna and Gip the Realtor vents about "Wanting to be recognized for my work." Some companies forget the true assets of the business, the employees. It is very fck'd up that companies do NOT do enough with showing appreciation and commendation to their employees. How would you like to be recognized at work? Want would help you decide to stay at a company when you feel unhappy? Jenna and Natasha covers the Employment Law from New Orleans requiring employers to provide accommodations for certain pregnant employees and limiting an employer’s use of an applicant’s criminal history in hiring decisions. Louisiana’s nondiscrimination law protecting “pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions” in employment (La. R.S. 23:341–42), was amended to include a requirement that employers provide reasonable accommodations for pregnant employees. Natasha and Jenna discuss, "How to find the right mentor for you and your next chapter in your career."

Such a great podcast

I can’t remember how I ran across this podcast but I am happy I did. I enjoy the vent session because I connect with what they’re saying. I love love love the drug test part 😂😂 I really like the section where they review new laws regarding employment. Also, they are very engaging with their listeners on social media.
