EPISODES
  • Epilepsy and Mental Health with Jeff Demitrak

    Thursdays 5:00pm - 6:00pm (EDT)

    WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?

    There are several reasons to listen to this episode:

    1) It is the way that Frank About Health began as a show to eliminate the stigmas of Epilepsy and those that live with it.

    2) To learn more about Jeff's Book entitled: Dating in the Dark: A Memoir about Dating Disasters with Epilepsy, Anxiety, and Psychotic Breaks.

    3) Jeff's experiences with Epilepsy have made him become a mental health advocate so we will explore some of those issues and discuss how his appearance on Frank About Health will be the precursor to some new contributions to Frank About Health in 2023.

    EPISODE SUMMARY:

    For many years, Jeffrey Demitrack searched for a meaningful and fulfilling relationship and, most of all, hoped that one day he would find a significant other who understood and unconditionally accepted his struggles with epilepsy. People have their insecurities, and relationships already are hard without throwing seizures into the mix, so his search has been a challenging one. 

    When first diagnosed with epilepsy at ten years old, he knew that society believed many negative stigmas about the terrible illness. This would surely be an obstacle when communicating about epilepsy to dates and potential partners. The stress of relationships, the anxiety of illness, and the impact of seizures on mood and behavior all played a part in making his interactions tough and, many times, traumatic.

  • Employer Liability Insurance: What Employers Need To Know.
    WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?

    Our audience will learn when a business owner should consider purchasing Employment Practices Liability Insurance, while gaining an understanding of what the policy covers, what is not protected, and under what circumstances.

    EPISODE SUMMARY:

    The employer/employee relationship is a cornerstone of any business. But what happens when things go wrong? What happens when an employee accuses an employer of sexual harassment, discrimination, failure to promote, or fostering a hostile work environment?

    Most employers don’t want to think about these scenarios, but in reality business owners are statistically more likely to be sued by an employee than by any vendor, customer, supplier, or third-party. High legal costs, lost time, and the court of public opinion contribute to the high overall costs of dealing with claims of company misconduct from an employee.

    On the next episode of Employment Law Today, join me and my guest, Insurance Agency Founder Aaron Levine, on a discussion of the value and benefit of having Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI). What is it? When should a business owner consider purchasing EPLI? What is covered and what is not protected, and under what circumstances? Learn the answers to these questions by tuning in to Employment Law Today on TalkRadio.NYC, on Tuesday, October 18th at 5pm (EST).

  • Hybrid Humanity: Staying Connected In A Virtual Workforce

    WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?

    Our audience will learn methods and tips for maximizing connection in the virtual workplace, and for forming meaningful bonds over Zoom and other video forums.

    EPISODE SUMMARY:

    As humans, we crave connection through speech, touch, and acknowledgement of presence, but in the aftermath of the pandemic, that connection may seem weakened in the workplace. A change to a remote workforce, WFH, and hybrid settings have created "the virtual meeting space," remote and onscreen in order to function in a new era while working, learning, and being. How can we, as employers, employees, and business owners, build genuine relationships virtually when conducting business online? How do we keep our employees engaged and connected when they are miles and miles apart?

    There are many things we can do, from learning to read body language in a more subtle and nuanced way, to getting a bit more personal in our conversation pre AND post meeting. On the next episode of Employment Law Today, tune in when my special guest, Betty Monroe, connective engagement coach and film and TV actor, and I discuss methods and tips for maximizing connection in the virtual workplace.

  • Employment Considerations For A Business Sale

    WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?

    The audience will learn to identify and address the potential employee / employment issues that arise when preparing to sell their business to a prospective buyer. 

    EPISODE SUMMARY:

    When selling a business, many owners look at the state of their inventory, their profits and losses, and make sure that any tax liens and outstanding credit issues are squared away. However, in order to sell your business for a maximum profit, the seller must also make sure their employee affairs are in order. Are there outstanding challenges to the existing non-compete agreements? Might these agreements need revision? Is the company in compliance with federal, state, and municipal labor and employment laws? Are any Department of Labor inquiries resolved? What about pre-empting potential lawsuits from disgruntled, soon-to-be former employees?

    Tune in on Tuesday, September 20, when my guest, the very knowledgeable and business savvy Damon Pistulka of Exit Your Way, discusses the myriad of employment and business related aspects of preparing a business for sale or acquisition.

  • I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me: Monitoring Employees' Social Media and Internet Usage.

    WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?

    The audience (business owners) will learn what types of monitoring of their employees' computer use and social media use is and is not acceptable, what advanced notice must be given to workers of monitoring/surveillance, and will further learn when an employee's social media posts about work are protected, even when offensive to the company or to you, the boss.

    EPISODE SUMMARY:

    Many states and municipalities are passing laws about an employer's right to surveillance of their employees' social media posts, internet searches, and computer use while on the job. With the increase in a remote workforce and many employees logging in to work from the privacy of their own homes, these rules around notifying employees of their electronic monitoring can get quite complicated.

    In addition, with other employees using social media for posts about their working conditions, which may include insults to the employer and calls to unionize, employers need to be cautious about their responses to "offensive" social media posts by their employees. How can employers monitor what their employees are doing, without breaching state laws, or violating their privacy?

    In this episode, fellow employment law attorney Jon Hyman, Esq, and I will discuss which labor and employment laws come into play when it comes to monitoring an employee. We will address what the law says about an employer responding to employees' social media usage outside of working hours and will address any protections of employees' speech that may come into play under the NLRA and other laws. 

    Tune in Tuesday, September 13 for every employer's must-see episode!

  • Business Law Basics for Entrepreneurs

    WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?

    - Our audience will learn to identify the necessary business law items they need as a solid foundation upon which to build their company.

    EPISODE SUMMARY:

    Many business owners and entrepreneurs become so heavily focused on creating their products, goods, or services that they lose sight of the “business law basics”, such as having the necessary agreements, contracts, and business entity formation documents in place as a foundation upon which to build their company’s brand, customer base, and corporate culture. 

    While it may be tempting to skip these business law steps or to use knock-off online templates and cookie-cutter programs for legal documents, doing so can result in vague, incomplete documents, incorrectly filed entities, and a weak foundation which can potentially leave your business more susceptible to litigation and long-term legal woes. 

    On tonight’s episode of Employment Law Today, my guest, corporate attorney and business advisor Mitchell Beinhaker, Esq., and I will discuss some of the necessary business law items that you, the business owner/entrepreneur, and/or employer ought to complete as you start or grow your business.
