Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!  I have been enjoying the excellent skiing in the Eastern Sierras (California’s snow pack is looking great this year).  So this Mammoth Skiingweek’s Friday’s Five article is a bit shorter, but I wanted to address five issues that the holidays create in regards to wage and hour issues in California:

1.     Five things to understand about holiday pay under CA law.

2.     Five rules for drafting vacation policies the right way under California law.

3.     Spending a lot of time with family during the holidays is a given, but is there room for workplace relationships

4.     Holiday implications for wage and hour issues.

  The Department of Industrial Relations provides a FAQ on issues surrounding holidays.

5.     Yearly items employers should audit.

Merry Christmas!  Hope you are enjoying some time off and time with your family.
