Customer service and attorney availability is something not usually inquired about when choosing legal representation. It should be.

Glad I was able to help this individual on an urgent basis for real estate and contract review needs.

Interesting data.

"According to the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Annual Report, 25% of women-owned businesses utilize personal/business credit cards for business expansion vs. 23% of men. Furthermore, the amount of women utilizing their personal or family savings for business expansion exceeds the amount of men who do the same."

Working as a team on a project? Team projects are required in just about every industry.

Be a leader! Use "Emotional Intelligence" and "Engagement Intelligence."

I saw this video about a month ago and thought this was a clever video worthy enough of sharing.

California's Labor Code contains a presumption that employees are employed at will.

Understand what "at will" means. This means that either the employer or the employee may terminate employment at any time, with or without cause or prior notice.

RESPONDEAT SUPERIOR. Learn this term if you are an employer or a business owner.

A temp. (temporary worker) on a temp. assignment drives long distance to return to his home after completing his assignment. On the way home he crashes into another car causing a fire. In the fire, the temp. and the driver of the other car die. A passenger in the other car survives. The surviving passenger sues the temp.'s estate and the employer who hired the temp. under the theory of Respondeat Superior, a legal theory that states that employers may be liable for acts committed by employees during the course and scope of their employment.

In this case, should the employer be held responsible for the temp.'s acts?
On February 22, 2017 a court confirmed the employer is not to be held responsible under this legal theory. Read the summarized arguments in the link. Lynn v. Tatitlek Support Services Inc., Calif. Ct. App., No. E063585 (Feb. 22, 2017)

Here's the highlight for employers: "Although an employer may have reasons to want to compensate an employee for his or her commuting time, doing so may make that time part of the employee's workday and may subject the employer for liability for the employee's actions during that time."

FREE RESOURCE. LIKE. SAVE. SHARE.

Working with a contractor lately? Here's a little blurb and reference book from the San Diego Law Library for you to use:

"Dealing with construction contractors can be complex and difficult as you try to get your project completed on-time with competent workmanship. The Law Library has several resources that can assist you in protecting your rights. We recently received a new edition of a key title in this area, Contractor’s License Law and Reference Book.

Contractor’s License Law covers the California laws and regulations that govern contractors and their business operations. The book includes narrative chapters detailing how a contractor is licensed. An important section deals with what is required by law to be included in construction or home improvement contracts. Additionally, there are sections detailing how consumers can enforce their rights through the complaint procedure available through the California Contractors State License Board.

This book is available in print at our Vista location and can be accessed from anywhere through the Library’s electronic catalog."

These client reviews are so much better than TED Talks to keep motivated. But if you'd like to watch a recommended TED Talk, watch "Eduardo Briceño: How to get better at the things you care about." Improve yourself every day through feedback and reflection in the "Learning Zone."
