Voters, CalChamber Agree
Vote Protects Redistricting,
Rejects Food Labeling, Tax

California voters overwhelmingly passed California Chamber of Commerce-supported Proposition 40, the referendum on the Senate district maps drawn by the Citizens Redistricting Commission. Voters also rejected Proposition 37, the flawed food labeling mandate, and the Munger tax initiative, Proposition 38.

Court Agrees with CalChamber:
Rounding Policies OK in California

Last week, the 4th District Court of Appeal issued an employer-friendly opinion by concluding that, under California law, employers may round employee timecard entries to the nearest tenth of an hour. This ruling is particularly important because there is no statute or prior case law that expressly authorizes this common practice, which is permissible under federal law and followed by California’s labor agency.

Labor Law Corner
What to Do When Non-English
Conversations Spark Complaint
We have many nationalities of employees at work. While we try to ensure that employees respect diversity, recently a new employee complained that she thought she was being talked about and/or excluded from conversations because employees were speaking in a language that she did not understand. To eliminate this problem, can we require that all employees speak English?
