Debra Monroe Speaks about Age Discrimination on Swedish TV
Debra Mugnani Monroe was interviewed earlier this month for a segment on age discrimination for Swedish TV (the Swedish equivalent of the BBC, serving 7 million viewers.) Contrary to Sweden’s socially responsible reputation, they still have no legal age discrimination protection and those over fifty are having the hardest time finding work there. There is a push to change that happening there now. You’ll find the interview around the 28 minute mark on this video.

With the new changes to the I-9 form and increased worksite enforcement actions completing and maintaining the I-9 form has become more complicated and riddled with significant liability.

Did You Know?
The San Francisco Employer Advisory Council (SFEAC) can be a great resource for anyone involved in their company’s human resources functions. Partnering with the state Employment Development Department (EDD), the EAC helps employers do business more effectively and efficiently by educating them about relevant employment issues, increasing employer knowledge of EDD programs and services, increasing cooperation and communication between EDD and the private sector, and identifying ways to improve EDD services. The EAC also assists employers in their efforts to give back to their communities by advocating local workforce development efforts, supporting veterans’ stand downs and providing scholarships to local area youth.
Who should belong to the EAC? Employers from businesses of every size can benefit including business owners, corporate managers, human resource managers, office managers and CPAs, CFOs or Treasurers. Members can stay abreast of changes in employment law through expert speakers, often from well-renowned labor law offices, at general membership meetings, receive assistance on a variety of human resource tops through the management hotline, and network with peers. In addition, members receive the EAC newsletters and can attend seminars and workshops on job services, employment tax, disability insurance, unemployment insurance and personnel administration.
