Is Quiet Quitting the New Workplace Phenomenon?
If we have learned anything about workplace culture from the pandemic, it’s that things are constantly changing. One of those changes, coined as “quiet quitting,” can generally be described as the practice of an employee disengaging from the workplace by only performing the bare minimum job requirements—think Stanley from The Office. In our last episode of 2022, Labor & Employment Practice Group member Jaycee Booth discusses how quiet quitting has affected businesses’ productivity, hiring efforts, and reputations, and explores simple but innovative methods employers can utilize to combat this new employment phenomenon.

Chipping Away at McGirt: SCOTUS Rules in Favor of State Sovereignty
On June 29, 2022, in Oklahoma v.

Indian Law & Gaming Practice Group Chair Mike McBride and associate Greg Buzzard discuss the importance of the change in composition to the Supreme Court between McGirt and Castro-Huerta, including the court’s decision to apply the Bracker balancing test for the first time in a criminal law case. They also examine the potential impact of the decision on states with considerably different Tribal jurisdictions and demographics to those in Oklahoma.

Prioritizing Functionality: New Office Space Promotes Connectivity and Comfort
Crowe & Dunlevy’s Tulsa office recently relocated to 222 North Detroit, becoming the first tenant to occupy space in the new building in downtown Tulsa’s Greenwood District. Real Estate Practice Group co-chair Malcolm E. Rosser IV joins Briefly Legal to discuss the more than 34,000 square feet of office space that prioritizes functionality, technology and efficiency while also promoting connectivity and comfort. Mac discusses moving away from the traditional heavy allocation of square footage to individual offices and toward work café and other connection spaces facilitating collaboration and interaction among its team and visitors—a new concept for large law firms, and food for thought for business people in this new era when traditional brick-and-mortar is learning to adapt to post-pandemic expectations from the workforce.
