   Office Space

By Debbie Stephens


Last week I took a trip to Tacoma, Washington to visit a friend and ex-co-worker of mine.  Thanks to my husband’s Air Force career we spent about 18 years in the Pacific Northwest and for me it’s always bitter sweet making that trip.  It’s like going home again and I just for a moment long to move back to the “great Northwest”.  Then the reality of the constant rain and dampness takes me out a temporary dream state and I remembered why we moved back home to San Diego…oh how I love the sun! click here to read more...


SDEA Salary Survey

According to San Diego Employers Association’s 68th Annual San Diego Wage and Salary Survey, businesses are opening up their pocketbooks more and rewarding their employees with higher thanaverage wage increases. “This finding adds another positive indicator to the continued recovery and growth of the region’s economy,” remarked Chris Bryant, President and CEO of San Diego Employers Association (SDEA). The average increase that was provided for non-exempt employees was 3.5% and was 4.3% for exempt employees.


Projections for 2016 continue to show increases in line with 2015’s numbers. “These are the highest numbers we have seen in years,” said Bryant, “and these increased amounts are even higher than the national average of 3%.”


In addition to monitoring the average salary increases of over 190 local jobs, SDEA’s survey covers over 9,500 incumbents and provides data on incentive programs, shift differentials, and Cost of Living Adjustments. This year’s survey found that 72% of participating companies reported having some sort of employee incentive program, which is up by 7% over the prior year.Click here for information...






Legal Update  for September 2016     

Author: Chris Olmsted (San Diego)

Ninth Circuit Approves Neutral

Time Clock Rounding Practice


Authors: Christopher W. Olmsted and Jaclyn A. Simi


Time clock rounding is a longstanding employer practice. Employers will round employee starting and stopping times to the nearest 5 minutes, or to the nearest one-tenth or quarter of an hour. Is the practice legal? For over 50 years, a federal regulation has authorized the practice, but until now, no federal appellate court has endorsed the practice. In May of this year, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals determined that an employer’s procedures complied with federal law in Corbin v. Time Warner Entertainment-Advance/Newhouse Partnership, 821 F.3d 1069 (9th Cir. 2016).
