    A few weekends ago, Stacey and I went to the 3rd VinDiego Wine and Food Festival. VinDiego changed venues this year – moving from the Broadway Pier in Downtown over to Liberty Station. I was again invited this year but only got one media ticket. Stacey and I split the difference between a discounted ticket. Let’s see what shenanigans we got up to this time! Jake dropped me off at the NTC Command Center where VinDiego was being held. Somehow I got in the “good” line since I got wristbands right away for both Stacey and I.

    The Mira Mesa Farmer’s Market happens just about every Tuesday. I was driving home from work yesterday and passed by the high school and thought, “Oh! Farmer’s Market! I’m gonna go.” And so I did.  The market seemed a little emptier on the farmer’s side yesterday, there was a big gap with some missing vendors – maybe they didn’t have enough stuff to sell that day. After wandering through the whole market I went back to check out the food. I noticed there was a little stand making takoyaki with two Japanese ladies. The banner is in Japanese…

El Agave Tequileria is located in Old Town (aka Tourist Land) just on the outer edges. They have their own parking lot in the back (to the left of this photo) but I ended up parking on the street nearby. Once you step inside, you see that the whole restaurant is a homage to tequila. There are tequila bottles EVERYWHERE. In the walls, along the ceiling, in cabinets. Seriously – every inch of this place seems to have a…

    California Employment Law Report

  • Five statutes that can shift attorney's fees to employers

    Anthony Zaller
    24 Apr 2015 | 11:13 am
    You may recall from your college business law class of the “American rule” regarding attorney’s fees: generally in the United States each side is responsible to their own attorney’s fees, and unlike other countries, the loser does not have to pay the other party’s attorney’s fees. Employers can basically ignore this general rule in employment litigation under California law. I debated about writing this article because once a lawsuit is filed, employers don’t have any control over what claims and damages the plaintiff will assert, so why would…

    You’ve set up a successful company and begin hiring employees. To be a successful operator in California, a company’s management needs to be familiar with the critical legal concepts in order to successfully navigate California’s complex employment laws. You never wanted to go to law school, but time to hit the, ahem, books (or the Internet).  Here are a five fundamental legal concepts that every employer should understand: 1. At-will employment.

    3 Apr 2015 | 1:08 am
    1. CEOs and founders need to be involved in the hiring process. This is simply something too important for a company to leave to other people.  Sam Altman, of Y Combinator, wrote: The vast majority of founders don’t spend nearly enough time hiring. After you figure out your vision and get product-market fit, you should probably be spending between a third and a half of your time hiring. It sounds crazy, and there will always be a ton of other work, but it’s the highest-leverage thing you can do, and great companies always, always have great people. You can’t outsource…
  • 5 common questions about class actions every employer should understand

    Anthony Zaller
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:18 pm
    1. What is a class action? To understand what a class action is, it is better to start with the basic individual litigation concept. Normally, parties bring their own disputes to court and litigate the case against the other parties who have been officially designated a parties and served with process and understand that they are parties to the lawsuit. Class actions, on the other hand, are brought against a defendant, but the claims are being asserted on behalf of parties who are not actually in the courtroom or named as individual plaintiffs. In the employment context, the plaintiffs are…

See, e.g., Campbell v. Regents of University of California (2005) 35 Cal.4th 311; MacDonald v. State of California (8/27/13) depublished 11/27/13.
