Vaping”—i.e., “smoking” an e-cigarette—is becoming more and more popular, but the jury is still out as to both the potential benefits and risks of the practice. Studies continue to be done about the potential risks of vaping,  how much nicotine or other harmful chemicals are being inhaled when one vapes, and whether there are any benefits associated with using these products.  While there are no federal or Michigan state laws currently in place regulating e-cigarette use, when that happens it will create one more concern for HR managers to address.


Last fall and winter during the run-up to the unionization vote at Volkswagen in Chattanooga, TN, Americans learned a lot about European-style Works Councils. One reason why a lot of people thought the UAW would prevail in the election was that it had agreed ahead of time with VW that it would allow the plant to form a Works Council if it won. But it did not win. And despite brave assertions by VW that it would establish a Works Council even without the presence of the UAW, no Works Council has yet been formed. And if one is to be formed it will bear only a passing resemblance to any of VW’s Works Councils outside the U.S.
