#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, September 25, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT), with the #TChat Twitter chat right after from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about gaming and measuring talent, and this week we're talking about the rub of transparency and privacy in the workplace between employer and employee. The transparency movement has certainly solidified, particularly the fact that employees not just prefer but demand more transparency from their employers – for example, how much profit they’ve made, why they promote and fire certain individuals and not others. Truth be told, while many employment laws have an indirect "transparency" mandate like in the case of Title VII and Sarbanes Oxley, generally the law does not grant a "right" of transparency to employees. And it just gets more complicated when you add in privacy issues and the ability of an employer or an employee to prevent disclosures to the other. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guest: Mary Wright, a Shareholder and the former General Counsel of Ogletree Deakins, the US Powerhouse in Employment Litigation, and founding Editor of the HR Gazette, a daily on-line newspaper for HR Professionals and Employment Lawyers. This will be another important #TChat show about employment law, transparency and privacy.
