• Warning, Will Robinson! Warning, Will Robinson! Danger! Danger! Danger!

    Everyone once in a while I get a moment to look at other websites and blogs that have nothing to do with employment law.  (Lawyers are entitled to breaks, too!)  While waiting for WordPress to load this morning, I saw a blog title that caught my eye: “Job Searching 101: Early Warning Signs Your Employer is a Jerk

    I had not reviewed this particular blogger’s posts before, but the title caught my eye so I clicked and read on.  Dawn Akemi, the author, describes her recent experience searching for a new job.  The content is good, but Dawn paints a great picture of what she experienced when she walked into a small sushi restaurant in search of a server position.

    Granted, the post has little, if anything, to do with California employment laws, but if you have a moment it is worth a read.  It makes you wonder how some companies stay in business.

  • Recent Article in ACBA L&E Section Newsletter: Department of Labor Proposes Change the Companion Exemption

    If you missed some of my prior posts talking about proposed modifications to the FLSA regulations regarding “companions,” I wrote an article for the Alameda County Bar Association’s Labor & Employment Law Section Newsletter.  The issue came out in May, but somehow it passed under my radar until I was searching for new information on the topic and came across the article.

    You can download a copy of the article at the ACBA L&E Section website.

    If you, or someone you know, works in the home care industry, I highly recommend reviewing the article.
