The Employee Survival Guide is a podcast only for employees. We will share with you all the information your employer does not want you to know about and guide you through various important employment law issues. The goal of the Employee Survival Guide podcast is to provide you with critical insights about your employment and give you the confidence to protect your job and career, especially during difficult times.
YOUR HOST MARK CAREY
The Employee Survival Guide podcast is hosted by seasoned Employment Law Attorney Mark Carey, who has only practiced in the area of Employment Law for the past 25 years. Mark has seen just about every type of employment dispute there is and has filed several hundred lawsuits in state and federal courts around the country, including class action suits. He has a no frills and blunt approach to employment issues faced by millions of workers nationwide. Mark endeavors to provide both sides to each and every issue discussed on the podcast so you can make an informed decision.
EMPLOYEE SURVIVAL GUIDE PODCAST IS LIKE NO OTHERS
The Employee Survival Guide podcast is just different than other lawyer podcasts! How? Mark hates “lawyer speak” used by lawyers and just prefers to talk using normal everyday language understandable to everyone, not just a few. This podcast is for employees only because no one has considered conveying employment information directly to employees, especially information their employers do not want them to know about. Mark is not interested in the gross distortion and default systems propagated by all employers, but targets the employers intentions, including discriminatory animus, designed to make employees feel helpless and underrepresented within each company. Company’s have human resource departments which only serve to protect the employer. You as an employee have nothing! Well, now you have the Employee Survival Guide to deal with your employer.
Through the use of quick discussions about individual employment law topics, Mark easily provides the immediate insight you need to make important decisions. Mark also uses dramatizations based on real cases he has litigated to explore important employment issues from the employee’s perspective. Both forms used in the podcast allow the listener to access employment law issues without all the fluff used by many lawyers.
