You might not believe your ears at first, as Bruce Sarchet and Michael Lotito of Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute (WPI) heap praise on the City of Los Angeles for adopting a worker “right to recall” ordinance. Regular listeners of WPI’s podcasts know that more traditionally its members are expressing concerns and reservations as new employment laws and regulations are adopted. But the City of Angels did something truly revolutionary in this new law – it afforded employers the “right to cure” before a lawsuit can be filed.
WPI sees this as a positive development, a true win-win for businesses and their employees, and asserts in this podcast that the right to cure should be seriously considered and adopted in other employment and labor laws as well.
