The result of such suckage is American voters being sucked dry along with the whole "Democratic" process.  It's a sucky slap in the face of America's Founding Fathers who, of

    Happy NINTH Blogiversary to This Tasty Life!  I can hardly believe its been nine years since this blog started. My blog would be in the 4th grade if it were a child! Also, my blog and Maya are the same age, if you can believe that.  I’ve slowed down a little on the blogging lately due to being busy at work, hating my laptop at home (that thing is OLD and needs to be replaced), and generally wanting to be OFF the computer on the weekends and evenings.

    On Mother’s Day this year, Jake wanted to take Carin out for breakfast to Tobey’s 19th Hole but Carin dropped a hint that she would like to go to Nate’s Garden Grill. She had never been there and it’s very close to Jake’s house, so we figured we’d drive by and see how busy it was and use Tobey’s as the backup plan. The place was not busy at all, lucky for us! Nate’s Garden Grill is located inside the City Farmer’s Nursery so if you’re not really paying attention, it can be easy to miss. If you see a big fence and a lot of greenery…

The restaurant came about as a way to bind all three ventures into one, making it a place to not only get a great meal but to also enjoy some local wine and craft beer! Jake and I went in on a Friday night with T in tow. The restaurant is in kind of a weird spot. When you make the turn you think, “Am I in the right place…?” since it looks like a business park…

I didn’t promise myself I would actually buy anything and my intentions were to only buy a strawberry cheesecake macaron if they had them. And if not, then nothing. That obviously did not pan out the way I thought it would. I peeked on the macaron shelf and saw no strawberry cheesecake macarons that day. I was a little sad until I saw one that said “Mostra Cold Brew” and my…

  • Five strategies to make sure you are getting the best service from your lawyer

    Anthony Zaller
    22 May 2015 | 9:22 am
    Today’s Friday’s Five article is a bit different in that it focuses on the attorney – client relationship.  Here are five recommendations to get the most out of your relationship with your lawyer: 1. Ask a lot of questions. No question should be off limits with your lawyer. Ask questions about litigation issues, billing issues, what legal terms mean. Very few clients routinely deal with litigation and understand the legal process or legal terms. Your lawyer should be able to explain these issues in a manner you understand. If your lawyer is put off by your questions, it is probably…
  • California’s paid sick leave: How to calculate pay for part-time employees, alternative work schedules and employees who receive fluctuating pay

    Anthony Zaller
    21 May 2015 | 6:20 pm
    As the July 1 deadline for employees to begin accruing paid sick leave, employers are wrestling with some of the ambiguities created by the law.  The legislation left many unanswered questions for employers to grapple with.  Some of the more common questions employers have had deal with how to calculate the accrual rate for part-time employees and employees working alternative work schedules (such as a 4 day 10 hour schedule), and how to calculate the amount owed to employees paid by piece rate or commissions when they utilize paid sick leave.  As set forth below, the Department of…

    While July 1, 2015 is the primary date making most headlines for the new sick leave requirement in California, and is when in fact employees begin to accrue and will be eligible to take paid sick leave, there are many other deadlines employers should keep in mind: 1.      January 1, 2015: Required poster “Healthy Workplaces/Healthy Families Act of 2014 – Paid Sick Leave” must be displayed. Employers must start using revised Notice to Employee for all new non-exempt employees hired. If an employer takes any adverse employment action against an employee within 30 days of…

    Based on last week’s post about the lawsuit filed against LinkedIn alleging that it violated the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), I thought it would be good to point out a few issues the arise when employers conduct background checks.  This article is not comprehensive, and this area of the law is very detailed, but the article is to remind employers to use caution when implementing these policies, as the exposure for violations could be huge. 1.      Treat everyone equally. If an employer makes the decision to obtain background reports for applicants or employees, the…

    Just a very quick note on Dickson v. Burke Williams, Inc. (3/6/15) --- Cal.App.4th ---, in which the Court of Appeal held as follows: [T]here cannot be a valid claim for failure to take reasonable steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment if, as here, the jury finds that the sexual harassment that occurred was not sufficiently severe or pervasive as to result in liability. A claim for failure to take reasonable steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment cannot prevail when the necessary element of sexual harassment is not established.
