Welcome to a discussion of HR requirements and strategies for the small to mid-sized business.

You know that your employees are the key to your business success, but being an employer or being “the boss” can get complicated at times. Focusing on your business and your customers is the top priority. It can be a challenge to also make time to develop expertise in improving employee performance and reducing employer risk.

Through my consulting business, First Thing Tomorrow Human Resources Consultants, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work alongside many gifted business leaders.

I welcome your comments and questions. Please feel free to contact me at info@firstthingtomorrow.com.

New California Law Requires Leave for Military Spouses

Effective immediately, all California employers with 25 or more employees are required to provide up to 10 days of unpaid leave to an employee whose spouse has been deployed to a scene of military conflict and is home on leave from the Armed Forces, National Guard or Reserves. Qualified employees are those who work an average of 20 or more hours per week and have provided advance notice to their employer within two business days of having received official notification of their spouse’s leave from deployment.

The full text of the statute, AB 392, may be found here: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/07-08/bill/asm/ab_0351-0400/ab_392_bill_20070920_enrolled.pdf
