Summer brings the anticipation of more sunshine, vacation plans, and grilling out with neighbors you haven’t seen since the weather turned cold. In the workplace,conversations about summer may sound something like this: Why would an employee wear long basketball shorts and call them “capris” under the summer dress code? Who’s going to cover so-and-so’s vacation? Can we re-hire college kids from last summer without doing additional paperwork? All this and more is answered in our cover story on page 2.
Also kicking off the summer is National Safety Month. As we hear more stories about tragic events in the workplace, it becomes a timely reminder to revisit your company’s practices and responses to risks or threats.
