    Gov. Jerry Brown directed the California Department of Public Health to allow for a separate religious exemption for vaccination counseling. But research from the California Immunization Coalition reveals found that few, if any, religions actually oppose vaccination. The only vocal critic is Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who claimed the flu vaccine was designed to kill people.

  • L.A. Votes: Greuel, Garcetti navigate union waters, roast colleague

    Seema Mehta
    22 Mar 2013 | 9:44 am
    As the mayoral candidates crossed the two-month mark until the runoff election, Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti are struggling with a bit of a paradox -- the two long-time, pro-labor Democrats are jockeying over which of them is more likely to stand up to city-employee union demands. Both candidates have labor backing, but the most influential and deep-pocketed unions have thrown their support behind Greuel. That has resulted in a political dynamic few expected -- Greuel has emerged as the de facto labor candidate while Garcetti has been painted as a union nemesis. Greuel has been…

    The 911 caller who falsely claimed that he was robbed at gunpoint the night Pasadena police shot and killed unarmed 19-year-old robbery suspect Kendrec McDade is due in court Tuesday to face misdemeanor charges that he lied to emergency dispatchers. Oscar Carrillo, 27, is charged with one count of making a false report of a criminal offense and a second count of reporting an emergency knowing the report was false, a Pasadena city spokesman said. If convicted on both counts, Carrillo faces a maximum sentence of 18 months in jail, his defense attorney, Andres Bustamante, told the Pasadena Sun.

    I received another opportunity to work with NestFresh Eggs in conjunction with National Egg Month this month! National Egg Month is around to help educate folks and raise awareness for choosing healthy eggs and including them into your diet. Did you know that NestFresh eggs are certified cage-free, non-GMO, and free-range – but what the heck does that mean? Cage-free means the little hens get to roam around and feel like free little birds instead of cooped up in close quarter cages and free range means they get to roam a little further away from the barn and towards the outside world…

    It’s amazing how many foodie related “holidays” there are. For instance, today is National Blueberry Pancakes Day and I wonder, is there a Cheetos day, or is it only recipes? And also, why only blueberry pancakes today? Is there an apple cinnamon pancake day, too? Or a dutch baby pancake day? I’m sure Google could answer all of these questions for me but I think it’s best to just let them drift into the void and wonder, like when we posed questions about things pre-internet. You’d wonder and then forget you ever asked the question or hope that Dad knew the…

  • Five exempt employee classifications all California employers should understand

    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…
  • Five indispensable items employers must know about California's Wage Theft Protection Act's Notice to Employee

    The Wage Theft Protection act of 2011 added Labor Code section 2810.5 requiring all private California employers to provide a written notice containing specific information to non-exempt employees upon hire. Below are five indispensable items employers should understand about the Notice to Employee (“Notice”) required under the law. 1. All private employers, regardless of size, must provide the Notice to employee with some limited exceptions. The DLSE explains that the Notice is not required for employees “directly employed by the state or any political subdivision,…
  • Five errors that make defending an employment lawsuit harder

    Anthony Zaller
    16 Jan 2015 | 10:11 am
    In litigation, the following five issues make defending an employment lawsuit much more difficult. 1. No documentation. No matter what type of employment litigation is at issue - wage and hour claims, leave issues, or harassment claims - the amount of documentation an employer has dramatically increases the odds of prevailing in litigation. I would even go as far as to say there is a relationship in place here (similar to Moore’s law in the computing industry) that the likelihood of avoiding a devastating judgment is proportionate to the amount of documentation the employer has…

    Let me start with the lawyer’s disclaimer up-front: this Friday's Five list has no scientific or statistical backing whatsoever, I generated it based on the cases I’ve been litigating in 2014. My experience may be (and probably is) skewed a bit, but nevertheless California employers should pay attention to the following areas of potential litigation. 1. Meal and rest break litigation. Meal and rest break class action litigation is still very prevalent in California. While employers are becoming more sophisticated in ensuring compliance with their obligations, the litigation has…

    In In re Walgreen Co. Overtime Cases (10/23/14, pub. 11/13/14) --- Cal.App.4th ---, the plaintiffs sought to certify a class of hourly employees on the theory that Walgreens propounded a lawful meal period policy, but in practice Walgreens failed to provide its employees with compliant meal periods. The trial court denied their motion for class certification, and the Court of Appeal affirmed, holding as follows: The trial court held that employers must make meal periods available, but need not ensure that their employees actually take those meal periods. Slip op. at 3-6.

The question after Martinez was whether the Wage Order definition of "employer" would apply in all wage and hour actions or whether courts would continue to look at the multi-factor test found in cases such as S.G.

The date of the event will be Tuesday, February 24th at 6 PM, and it will be held at The Hideout, the new “it” place in Aptos. There are a limited number of tickets available – less than 40 in all will be sold, so…

    Pot Belly Beach is located between Seacliff State Beach and New Brighton State Beach, on the border of Aptos and Capitola. The beach is partly privately owned (up to the high tide water mark, anyway), with a number of multi-million dollar homes built right up on the sand. As this is mostly a private beach, there are no amenities and most “users” of the beach are just passing through. However, Pot Belly Beach is also known as a good spot to learn to surf, away from the maddening crowds. See also: New Brighton Beach Web Page Pot Belly Beach Aptos The post Pot Belly Beach appeared…
