    Last weekend Jake and I felt like young adults again, going out for dinner and a play. At night! On a Friday! By ourselves! This is a rare thing these days. We were going over to Coronado to check out the play, Avenue Q, and needed a little dinner before the show. Jake nixed any suggestions I made for dining in Downtown so I went with a place just outside of Downtown in Barrio Logan. A new place called ¡Salud! which is the restaurant version of San Diego Taco Company, a local catering company specializing in taco parties. The other nice thing about going here for dinner was we were so…

I’m not even a fan of regular peas by their lonesome self, but I do love me some pea soup so I figured it’d be worth it to back the project and try them out. I always like trying new things!

Their roots are in Denver and I’m glad they made the trek out West since their breakfast items are totally delicious.  We went on the morning of the Super Bowl so while it looked crowded to us, our waitress told us it was actually “slow” for them. I’m sure this place is usually completely packed. If you’ve ever just driven by a Snooze AM Eatery then…

    A spontaneous boyfriend and low gas prices prompted a mini road trip last month to Yuma, AZ. Why Yuma and why Arizona, you might ask? Mostly it was so I could finally try Cracker Barrel, a chain “down home cooking” restaurant present in many states but not California. Jake and T has tried it last year when they went to Aspen so it was finally my turn. I know, it’s just a chain restaurant but I was still curious! We rolled out early on a Sunday morning after dropping off Jake’s dog at my house. It was really a lovely day. It’s about a two and a half hour drive out…

    California Employment Law Report

  • Five issues employers should become familiar with under California's Labor Code provisions regarding one day of rest every seven days of work

    Anthony Zaller
    27 Feb 2015 | 11:23 am
    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has asked the California Supreme Court to clarify three questions pertaining to California’s little known, and very rarely litigated, laws regarding a day of rest every seven days. The case is Mendoza v. Nordstrom. The California Supreme Court’s clarification could result in a new-found focus on these laws, and it is worth it for California employers to follow the issues raised in this case. Below are five issues employers ought to pay attention to: 1. Is the requirement to provide one day of rest every seven days based on a rolling seven days or…

    There is always a lot of attention paid to what notices and forms should be given to new-hires. However, today’s Friday’s Five post I want to focus on the documents that should accompany an employee’s separation from employment: 1. Paycheck for all hours worked until separation including all accrued but unused vacation time. Generally, the paycheck must be provided at the time of termination or within 72 hours if employee quits without providing 72 hours’ notice. Here is a more detailed article I wrote on the topic previously. 2. Notice to Employee as to Change in…

    Anthony Zaller
    6 Feb 2015 | 8:19 am
    One policy that I find is usually not given the attention it deserves when drafting employee handbooks is the policy for vacation time. There are numerous rules about how employees earn vacation, and it is often tricky to draft a proper policy without someone experienced in this area. Many out-of-state employers assume that their policy complies with California law when setting up operations, but California is unlike most other states when it comes to vacation time. Here are some of the more problematic areas I see arise (for more detailed overview it is worth reading the DLSE’s website…

    Anthony Zaller
    30 Jan 2015 | 12:10 pm
    I apologize for the long post in advance, but I’ve been receiving many questions about exempt vs. non-exempt classification of employees lately. This article is the first in a series of articles to help employers tread through this technical area, hopefully in a manner that makes it at least somewhat easier for employers to understand. California law presumes that all employees are non-exempt employees, meaning that they are not exempt from the Labor Code requirements, such as overtime pay, meal and rest breaks, and minimum wage. Exempt employees are designated as such because they are…

    The Cardboard Guys: Jordan Kepler, Justin Farr and Jake Disraeli There’s a hot new Kickstarter project in town – so hot, in fact, it was named a Kickstarter Staff Pick within hours of launching. It’s an idea whose time has come: sturdy, inexpensive furniture made from 50% post-consumer recycled cardboard – designed for kids. The project is the brain child of Aptos native Jordan Kepler, who recently graduated Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. Kepler, along with fellow Cal Poly alumni Justin Farr and Jake Disraeli, came up with the idea as part of their senior project. They…

    A Walk on the Beaches of Aptos I’ve always enjoyed going on a nice walk, and Aptos is a wonderful place to go for a stroll.
