Welcome to the Central Coast Employment Law blog. The mission of this blog will be to act as a resource to you concerning significant legal developments affecting employers throughout Northern California including Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Santa Clara Counties. Regardless if you operate an ag company in Salinas, run a hotel or restaurant in Carmel or manage a start-up tech company in Santa Cruz, you are facing an ever-increasingly complex regulatory environment that can lead to draconian penalties if you are not up to speed with the latest legal trends. Each month, this website will attempt to spotlight some of the most pressing areas that human resource managers, executives and business owners should consider as they conduct medium and longer-term planning of their businesses. While most blogs spit out daily robo-news articles and alerts regarding some new case or new regulation that usually does not apply to you, our blog will attempt to introduce you to innovative new trends and practical policies of general importance that will hopefully help you run a smarter, and more profitable, business. Thank you for visiting.
