In this episode of the Left of Boom Show, we welcome Jon Hyman, a seasoned employment and labor attorney with over 25 years of experience, to the Left of Boom Show. As the leader of the Employment & Labor Practice Group at Wickens Herzer Panza, Jon brings a wealth of knowledge on a range of employment and labor law issues.

We dive into the hot topics of the day, starting with the Supreme Court’s decision involving Starbucks and the Memphis 7. We also chat about the recent legal battles involving Amazon, including the US Court of Appeals’ decision to throw out a cease-and-desist order against the company. This leads us into a conversation about the challenges the NLRB faces with 10-j injunctions and what it all means in the broader context of labor relations.

With the Chevron doctrine possibly going away soon, Jon explains why this matters and how it could impact agencies like the NLRB, EEOC, and DOL. We also touch on Anchor Brewing and the complexities of asset purchases and union recognition.

Jon then shares the story behind the “Worst Employers List,” why he created it as part of his blog, and why it remains relevant today.

We wrap up with some fun, talking about Jon’s summer adventures with his daughter Norah, a memorable encounter with Rhett Miller of the Old 97’s, and Jon’s love for Portugal.

Join us for an insightful yet relaxed conversation that blends professional expertise with personal stories, offering valuable takeaways for anyone navigating the modern workplace.
