  • California State Laws California

    Hello,

    My employer is out of Maryland; however we plan to hire 30 employees in California. I am looking for suggestions of where I can take a class on California state laws. I heard a nasty little rumor that California was like it's country when it came to employment laws

    You might try the Chamber of Commerce, I think they have a good publication.

    The EDD often has workshops; I don't know if any of them are webcast.

    Oh, and I'm sorry.

      Also try a local SHRM chapter in CA, BLR has some good online courses.

        Sorry, but it's not a rumor.

          You might want to download CA publication DE-44 (employer tax guide). Past that the following pointer has CA-DLSE fact sheets.

            I second the Chamber of Commerce. Here is their HR site, an awesome resource for employers!

              You mean the Peoples' Republic....of California??

              Just wait until you get your first CA maternity leave that qualfies for FMLA/CFRA. (with 30 employees PDL is an automatic shoo-in, but you don't have to deal with FMLA/CFRA until you hit 50 employees in CA).

              I would venture we will be seeing you post more frequently

                I had taken one of the members credit card number and used it to buy a gift card for $360.00

                lost prevention and my manager pulled me into the room where i confessed to this crime with a written confession statement.

                Since this is illegal not only by the company but by law as well why was i not firied? why was i only placed under unpaid administrative leave if i confessed to the crime and they caught me on camera. why not fire me. is there some kind of law or rule to this i can know about since i should have been fired on the spot please someone help me

                    California has a wonderful law that says if an employee leaves and you fail to pay them all of their pay, you have to pay them a day's wages for up to 30 days as a penalty. Most employees don't know about it, but you should.

                    As a Californian, I'm amazed at the lack of worker rights in the rest of the nation, it's funny that y'all think it's a hellhole for employers. The laws wouldn't have been passed if employers treated their employees like real assets to their company instead of mules.

                      It's not the rights or lack thereof; it's trying to keep track of two different sets of rules. CA has made laws about things that no other state has even thought to put into place. The reason is more or less immaterial; someone asks a question and it's more like, there's the rule for the rest of the country, now what's the rule for CA again?

                      And again, regardless of the reason, many smaller employers simply can't afford the costs of all the wonderful rights CA gives to employees.
                      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

                        Apparently, the state of CA can't afford it either.....

                            Second that AMEN!!! Arnie helped by implementing some workers' comp reform in 2004, but the new legislation is all focused on job killers.

                            By the way, we don't RAISE TAXES anymore; we merely INCREASE REVENUE STREAMS. Nice verbiage, huh?

                            Can I get a ladder to get off my soapbox now? I believe there is a CA law that says the employer must provide it!
