MoFo Partner Backs Ombuds as Remedy for Micro-Inequities

Eric Tate, a prominent attorney and partner at megafirm Morrison & Foerster, recently says everyone has experienced “micro-inequities” in the workplace, and he is no exception. (The term was first coined by Mary Rowe, Ombuds at MIT, in 1973.) Speaking at the ABA Annual Meeting in New York City, Tate called for an awareness of the problem. Among other remedies, he said employers should appoint Ombuds to handle complaints. (ABA Journal; see also Rowe's JIOA Article.)
