Human Resources

With the employment laws constantly changing and evolving in every state, we must be well versed in all that is going on. In my home state of California, employers don’t know half of all the changes being made 😳 Lee Goldberg says, “If you don’t have an HR professional, then you are definitely violating the law, somewhere” Simply put, you don’t know what you don’t know. Do you have an HR Professional that can guide you through all the changes continuously happening? If so, give them a shout below! We are an HR community embracing collaboration to better the workplace…
  Heading into audit season, a simple and cost effective solution to ensure your documents are prepared correctly is having an ERISA Wrap Document. Including a wrap document will mean if there’s anything missing in your insurance policy or coverage certificate, this one document will supplement the information necessary to comply with ERISA. It’s a bit like playing defense, it’s nothing flashy but when you need it, you’re so glad you’re covered. Plus, at less than $500 a year, it’s the easiest way to save yourself a ton of headaches. What is ERISA? Employee Retirement income Security Act (ERISA) is…

By Lee R. Goldberg, Esq. www.callawyers.com January 12, 2021   No, I am not writing about some new government loan program – though they are out there. I am writing about the importance of (and regulated requirement for) good, written and implemented policies, practices and procedures for businesses in the COVID era (yes folks – it will be here for a while longer). As of November 30, 2020, with limited exceptions, all companies are required to prepare and adopt a written COVID Prevention Program (“CPP”) (California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Section 3205(c)). Cal OSHA has posted a “sample” plan…

For the first twelve years of my professional career, I had a secret that I didn’t share with anyone at work. That secret was that I didn’t have a college degree. It made changing jobs challenging because I wasn’t sure if I would find a place that would accept me for my talents, skills, and experience. Sure, I had been to college, but I hadn’t finished. I was 32 years old when I completed my undergraduate degree. I kept my secret because it was one way in which I was different from the majority of my professional colleagues. I wanted…
  I know I’ve talked a lot about this, but everything that I do comes from vulnerability. When you lead with vulnerability, you’re going to get exactly that back from your employees with support and honesty. I’m an absolute believer in all that my team does for me, but it’s amazing to how supportive back they are of me. This all stems from unconditionally accepting and unconditionally loving them, even when I might be upset or even upset at them. Just do me one favor. Please be a leader that makes the changes and starts to lead with vulnerability. It’s…
As a business consultant, professional recruiter, and executive coach I have spent a good amount of time with owners who proudly point to their written business plan on the shelf in their office.  When asked the last time they looked at it, they will dutifully take it off the shelf, dust it off, and offer that it has been a few years.…
Maybe we think that we have to still: ☑️ Lead by example ☑️ Keep a stiff upper lip ☑️ Not show any weakness ☑️ Have to be “perfect” That’s not the case anymore. We need to make sure that we are being as honest as we can be, to each other and with each other. We need to be able to lay down our vulnerability and grow in our relationships with others. Vulnerability can be a dear friend and we can embrace it, with open arms, and not be afraid anymore. I’ve been more open and honest about how I…
