The Law at Work: The Ins and Outs of Paid Vacation Time
As the holiday travel season and year’s end approach, SCMV shareholder Dan Eaton lays out the basics of California’s paid vacation rules and the recent wage-reporting change employers need to be aware of in his latest “The Law at Work” in The San Diego Union-Tribune.
