Deflategate Ruling Shouldn't Deflate Georgia Employers


Bert Brannen’s article “'Deflategate' Ruling Shouldn't Deflate Georgia Employers” was featured in Daily Report on September 4, 2015.

A decision Thursday by a federal judge to overturn the NFL's four-game suspension imposed on New England Patriots' star quarterback Tom Brady provides valuable lessons for Georgia employers.

  3. Your Punishment Needs to Fit the Crime
  4. Arbitration Decisions Are Still (Mostly) Sacred
