This week’s Safe For Work Video looks at the issue of employers’ rights.

In this video, Jon Stossel talks with special correspondent Kennedy and John Tillman of the Illinois Policy Institute about whether employers deserve the same rights as unions.

There isn’t an abundance of information on this topic; believe it or not, this Fox Business News video was the only relevant result I found after searching Google and YouTube.* Fortunately for employers, there’s a new resource available that fills this gap: The Employer Bill of Rights: A Manager’s Guide to Workplace Law, by Jonathan Hyman.

Take a look at the video, and be sure to join us this afternoon at 3PM Eastern for The Proactive Employer Radio Show - we’ll be speaking with Jon about his new book, what ten workplace rights employers have, and why they must exercise those rights vigilantly to create a productive, harmonious workplace.
