Newsweek: Attorney Andrew Lieb Analyzes Ed Sheeran Copyright Trial

"How does an artist know when similar works are commonplace enough to not infringe? In the era of technology, it's time for there to be an algorithmic-based test so artists know when works infringe rather than leaving it to filing procedures and the jury," says Andrew Lieb, Esq.

FEMA Employment Rights Signed into Law

In the wake of Hurricane Ian we are all thinking of the people of Florida and the Carolinas. However, what about the workers who are going to save lives and communities in the wake of the storm? What happens to them when they leave their jobs and do what is necessary in the blink of an eye. Are they sacrificing their continued employment by just leaving?


On September 29, 2022, President Biden signed the CREW Act into law to protect these important workers. Now, these workers who give notice of absence from a position of employment are considered to be engaging in a "military necessity" and these FEMA workers are now entitled to reemployment rights and benefits. 


This is good law.

Tattoo Stigma Discrimination - Maybe It's Too Woke?

The New York City Council introduced a bill to prohibit discrimination against people based on their tattoos. Are they taking discrimination law too far? 


Yes, it's true that employers ban tattoos at the workplace all the time. Yes, there is a stigma attached to those with tattoos. Yes, that stigma is not associated with actual data of lower work quality or effort and it's therefore, wrong. However, unlike sex, religion, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, race, and the rest of the protected classes in New York City, getting a tattoo is a personal choice. Or is it? Don't some religions endorse tattoos (e.g., Buddhism and Hinduism) and isn't tattoo discrimination therefore religious discrimination? But, wouldn't those with religious tattoos already have a discrimination claim if they were denied employment and not need this bill? 


What do you think? Do you think tattoos should be a protected class giving rise to a discrimination lawsuit if someone is denied work because of their tattoo?


Shouldn't jobs be based on work quality alone? Or, shouldn't a boss have some say in who works for the company outside of qualifications? 


This is a tough one.

Employment Discrimination - Federal Sector - Regulatory Changes Coming

Did you know that employees of the federal government have special rules to sue their employer for employment discrimination? For example, these employees only have 45 days to initiate their complaint after the discriminatory event or they are foreclosed from bringing a case.


Now, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is proposing an amendment to the regulation that governs these types of discrimination cases, 29 CFR 1614.


The proposed amendment is a step forward by embracing the EEOC's Electronic Public Portal, but it's not nearly enough for these employees who are often a day late and a dollar short in bringing their claims. What really needs to happen is to provide federal sector employees with extended timelines to bring their cases, which match that available to private sector employees (180 days or 300 days depending on local discrimination laws). 


That said, the proposed regulatory change is designed "to authorize the Commission to transmit its hearing and appellate decisions and other documents to registered complainants through the EEOC Electronic Public Portal," which makes sense.
