Hewlett Packard Enterprise moving to Houston, TX

Along with a better-than-expected 4th quarter SEC earnings report, Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced that it will be moving the company headquarters from San Jose, CA to Houston, TX. The move will come in 2022, with the completion of a new state-of-the-art campus. HPE announced it will consolidate offices in California to the existing San Jose headquarters, but the move will not create any layoffs.

After years of increasingly exotic interpretations of already-vague guidelines, the US Department of Transportation recently set forth new rules for airlines regarding service animals. The new rules define a service animal as a dog, “individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability." All other animals must be checked in the cargo hold, generally for a fee. The new rule also allows airlines to place a limit on the number of service animals per passenger to only two, and they must fit within the passenger's foot space. The revised rule will go into effect in Jan. 2021.

World Human Rights Day

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere."
Eleanor Roosevelt.

When the vaccine becomes available, some employers are planning to mandate inoculation of all employees from COVID-19. There is plenty of guidance and discussion on whether an employer can mandate testing, but vaccinations are a different matter.

Current Guidance

The first step before making the decision to mandate vaccinations (after seeking legal counsel) is to determine whether the EEOC or similar state agencies have released guidance in this area. The EEOC has yet to provide specific opinion as to a hypothetical COVID-19 vaccine that has yet to be released, but they did address the matter in the H1N1, swine flu pandemic.

Our General Counsel Select service has no hourly fees. What does that mean? We assess your business's unique needs, and provide you a flat monthly fee for service - no extra fees for services that fall in your contract.
