Due to summer vacation, this month’s First Thursday was a week late (hey, we all need to recharge our batteries). But don’t worry, it’s still chock-full of useful information!

Featured in this month’s podcast:

  • A round of decisions on what’s mandatory for bargaining that cover topics including insurance, vehicles, assignments, vacations, fitness for duty and hours of work.
  • A decision out of California requiring the City of Los Angeles to arbitrate a grievance requiring furloughs
  • A decision by the New Jersey Public Employment Relations Commission entitling union to see the sick leave records of supervisors
  • The interplay between Garrity and Weingarten
  • An order not to leave – when is it a Fourth Amendment ‘seizure’?
  • The strange world of First Amendment law under Garcetti
