What the Supreme Court decision means for workers — especially if you work at a private company

““It’s giving the green light to people like Harvey Weinstein,” Benjamin Dictor, an attorney who represents labor unions, said. “An employer [can now] force employees into binding arbitration, where they know they have significantly more power than the employee and significantly more resources and can hide their misdeeds.” (Editor’s note: Dictor’s clients include the Mic editorial union.)”

A case against Trump is going to trial. Attorneys want a judge to force him to testify.

“The law gives plaintiffs a right to the testimony of every defendant in the case. By our motion today, we have asked the court to secure that right and affirm the principle that no one, including defendant Trump, is above the law,” said Roger J. Bernstein and Benjamin N. Dictor, attorneys for the plaintiffs.

““Some of the strongest unions in American history started with what people might consider itinerant work,” Dictor says. “People showing up at the dock and waving their hand in the air asking to be picked to unload a ship turned into one of the strongest and most influential unions in the United States. And it’s innovative on the part of this group to look at domestic work as having that potential, as something that has always been here, will always be here, and is an important part of the economy and labor force that has not been organized.””

“When paychecks bounced in January 2015, the staff finally refused to work anymore, and the business closed. Dictor, who represents many of those employees, referred to her as "the vegan Bernie Madoff."”

Ellen's Stardust Diner Is Still Serving Drama

“But employees are suggesting the sudden accusation is a retaliation for that class-action lawsuit being brought by Stardust Family United, a group of workers at the restaurant who have never officially sought federal certification as a union, but who are collectively suing Ellen’s Stardust Diner. Their attorney, Ben Dictor, told the Post that these accusations of theft are meant to “chill other people’s participation” in the worker’s lawsuit, which accuses the owner’s of abusing, withholding and wrongfully distributing their tips.”

How Will These New Freelancer Protections Work, Exactly?

“Benjamin Dictor, an attorney with the labor law firm Eisner & Dictor, represents unions and individual workers. He urged anyone who thinks they might qualify to exercise these new rights. "Creative cases can advance the law," he said. "The law might be written by a legislative body, but it is plaintiffs that advance it and develop it. Anyone who thinks that their rights have been violated should seek legal counsel."”

“Labor lawyer Ben Dictor, a partner at the firm Eisner & Associates, explained in an email that while independent contractors lack formal bargaining rights, "becoming a member can give an independent contractor access to benefits and a stronger, collective voice within their industry." He continued: “One could see how this could be particularly useful from an advocacy and industry standards perspective for workers who, like cab drivers, work alone for significant parts of their workday. Joining a union is one way to pool economic and political power to push the industry forward.””

“The company, Dictor says, is “saber-rattling” that it is going to pull out of mediation because of this week's actions, but he says the workers still want to negotiate. All they want, he says, is for their boss to sit down with them and talk. “The workers have been extending their hand since Day One to seek a negotiated resolution to these issues," Dictor says. "The company has fought them at every turn.””
