Marc A. Mandelman, a Member of the Firm in the Labor and Employment practice, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted in TheStreet, in “10 Ways to Score Office Freebies,” by Greg Emerson.
Following is an excerpt:
There is one strategy that may allow employees to use semantics to increase their chances of getting a new piece of gear at their desks. Mandelman says that sometimes a request for a special accommodation will be much easier for an employer to agree to if it’s presented as a temporary request, one that in the future can be passed to another employee who might make a similar request. “An employer may be able to meet a request on a temporary or other limited basis, but not be able to manage that request on a permanent basis,” Mandelman says.
