Dive headfirst into the world of modern employer-employee dynamics, as we shine a spotlight on some of the trickiest situations that can land employers in hot waters. This captivating episode promises to equip you with the knowledge and insight to navigate these murky waters. We address this head-on with an engaging discussion on the legality, and potential fallout, of requiring employees to stay within the premises during an unpaid lunch break – a question sparked by our keen listener. Employers take note as we dissect the legal implications of such a policy and stress the importance of seeking legal counsel before implementing such measures.

Hold onto your hats as we dissect hush-hush tactics employees may resort to for upper-hand leverage.
