Exhausted? Blame Zoom. Or Skype

Evil HR Lady

I cannot even begin to count the number of video conferences I’ve done since the beginning of March. I’ve worked exclusively at home for 11 years, and so I thought I was as up to date as anyone on remote communication. I teach a daily class via Skype and thought I was prepared for all my real-life meetings to replaced with video conferences–mostly Zoom. But, I find them exhausting.

Sklover’s Thoughts for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

“It’s OK to not be OK.”. – Brian Stelter. With the blessing of life there comes not just joy, but also sorrow, grief and pain. Sure, we all try to keep ourselves “above water,” but sometimes we just can’t do that. Or get to sleep at night, or out of bed in the morning. Not just you, but all of us. Sometimes, we can’t brush our teeth, shave or shower. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed. All of us. These are such times, and those feelings are – in this circumstance – acceptable.

Age Discrimination or Protecting a Vulnerable Employee?

Evil HR Lady

My “position” was called back to our store after furlough but I was not. My coworker, who I trained and share the position with, was called back yesterday. No one will answer my calls or questions about my possible return. I am 58 years old and have had higher evaluation scores than my coworker. Is this a case for age discrimination? They will not tell me that I am laid off yet but they are not having me return to work alongside my coworker. Any advice would be appreciated.

You Love Dress Codes

Evil HR Lady

Last week I wrote about a judge’s request for lawyers (lawyers!) to get out of bed and put some clothes on before appearing in a virtual court. I knew this would result in people telling me that dress codes are stupid and what matters is performance and not whether the lawyer is wearing a swimming suit. I was right. I got messages. Okey-dokey. Performance is what matters. What is a part of performance? How you communicate. What are clothes? A means of communication.
