We're paying close attention to 2 different bills in Sacramento that have been strongly labeled as, "Job Killers" by CalChamber.
AB5 would create the Opportunity to Work Act and would require employers with 10 or fewer employees to offer additional hours to existing employees before hiring anyone new or using an Independent Contractor. In addition, there are provisions for employees to SUE the employer if they don't do this...what??
It's called SB 63, and in the button link below to CalChamber's article, you'll read about the plan to increase the time off for maternity/paternity an additional 12 weeks while expanding the law to include businesses with as few as 20 employees (currently 50)
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE family, I LOVE babies & bonding, but will this really help our small businesses stay staffed and efficient? What say you?
Thanks for clicking and reading through - these Bills are relevant to everyone, don't let them slide past your radar!
