    One More Big Reason to Join Us



    My last reason to join us is to stave off the feeling of being isolated or lonely. I hear this a lot from HR people who ARE the HR team or are part of a VERY small HR team in your company. And even in a larger HR organization.


    It’s easy to see how that can happen; especially when things aren’t going well. Being a good HR manager in any organization can be ‘personally’ challenging because, sometimes, you need to take a stand or insist on an approach your managers or senior leaders don’t agree with. If you want to win the popularity contest, you probably shouldn’t be in HR.


    But, the good news is that you aren’t alone. There is a larger, diverse HR community that you can be part of in North County. We have members of different ages, races, HR functions, levels of HR experience, perspectives and so forth. Even in our diversity, most of our members face the same set of issues you face. 


    You may find you have a lot of similarities to others in our NCHR-SD community. And you may get just the right perspective you need for success. 


    Our theme for 2017 is ‘Building our HR Community’. We take steps at our events to build our HR Community. 


    We hope to see you at one of our upcoming luncheons or workshops.


    Donna Evans,

    President, NCHR-SD

    By Kristina M. Launey & Melissa Aristizabal on April 18, 2017




    Seyfarth Synopsis: Back from Spring Break, and Back to Work: Our List of L&E Bills to Watch in the remainder of the 2017-2018 California Legislative Session. But, in comparison to prior years, the calendar has been surprisingly light for heavy-hitter labor and employment bills. The Legislature returned to work on April 17, after its spring break, and continued to push bills out of the house of origin in advance of the June 2nd deadline.


    Here’s what we’re watching:


    Opportunity to Work Act. Modeled after the City of San Jose’s November 2016 voter-approved Opportunity to Work Ordinance (effective April 1, 2017), AB 5 would require employers with 10 or more employees in California to offer additional hours of work to existing nonexempt employees in California…Read more...

    Top 10 Dumbest California Laws


    By Aaron George

    Lawkick blog post


    Despite over 200 years of being an independent country and countless hours of hard work by our politicians and government leaders, it seems we still haven’t quite figured out the whole “law-making” process. We were absolutely baffled to discover some of the laws that remain in effect today, and even some that have been passed recently.


    So, here is our list of the top 10 dumbest California laws.


    Dumb Law #10

    In Chico, CA, it's against the law to bowl on the sidewalk. 


    Dumb Law #9 

    It's illegal to lure someone to a store by playing a trumpet in Indian Wells, CA
