Podcast: Fighting for the Workforce

by Katie Wolf

on 02 August, 2019

We live in a country that touts itself as the land of the free and the home of the brave. And yet we spend the majority of our waking hours in undemocratic workplaces where we fear retaliation for speaking out against fraud, assault, or other forms of misconduct.

We’ve seen how the #MeToo movement is pushing back against workplace harassment and nondisclosure agreements. We’re also living through some hard fights over mandatory arbitration agreements, the place of unions in our society, and whether whistleblowers should be protected.

We’re living through a battle over what justice looks like in the workplace. And today’s guest is right in the thick of the fray.

Today we’re talking with attorney R. Scott Oswald. Scott is a hugely accomplished trial lawyer working with the Employment Law Group in Washington DC. He has done groundbreaking work around employment law and whistleblower law.

He’s also a prolific speaker, advisor, and writer on these issues. We’re lucky to have him on the show today. (edited)
