Why is the employment lawyer blogging late on a Friday night? (Hint: ⚖️💉🤯)

Workplace Safety / Violence


I’ll get to my dessert in a bit. And, no, that’s not why I’m blogging tonight.

It’s because I love my readers — again, not the alcohol talking — and I thought you should know that the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has — get this — DISSOLVED the stay of OSHA’s vax-or-test Emergency Temporary Standard. That’s right! The OSHA ETS is back on! You can read a copy of the full opinion here.

You must have many questions…

  • Why did the “conservative” Sixth Circuit disagree with the Fifth Circuit? (I’ll tackle that on Monday.)
  • Eric, are you really drinking BTAC? (Sadly, no.)
  • Will the petitioners appeal to the Supreme Court? (Does a bear poop in the woods?)
  • Will OSHA begin enforcing the ETS in the interim? (Unclear. It hasn’t updated its website yet.)

Try to enjoy your weekend. But find some pearls for clutching. I’ll be back on Monday with an update.


My firm, FisherBroyles, has entered the Am Law 200, the ranking of the largest 200 law firms in the United States

FisherBroyles, LLP, which added more partners in 2020 than nearly all of the Am Law 200 firms, is the first distributed law firm to crack the list.

The press has been loving us something vicious (here, here, here, and here). And so have lateral partners. What's the attraction (besides me, of course)?
  • The firm is recession-proof. Attorneys continue to get paid exactly what they earn. Indeed, our partners always keep 80% of the revenue from work that they bring in and perform.
  • There are no sharp elbows, star chambers, or billable-hour requirements (among other highlights).
  • Me! (Duh.)
We are so much different than other large law firms. And, yes, FisherBroyles, the first and largest distributed model law firm in the world, is still hiring!

If you have AmLaw200 experience and a significant portable book of business, we should really talk. You can reach me confidentially. Text or Signal: (202) 441-1424.
