California has enacted two new pieces of legislation to take effect on January 1, 2018, that are intended to improve job opportunities, and opportunities for women in particular. This continues a nationwide trend toward the adoption of laws aimed at combating workplace gender inequities. The first bill, SB-63, expands the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid parental leave for employees of companies with as few as 20 employees. The second bill, AB-168, prohibits employers from seeking or relying on a job applicant’s salary history information when deciding whether to offer employment and what salary to offer and requires employers to provide the pay scale for a position to an applicant, upon request.

January 2007 - In keeping with its historical role as an environmental trendsetter, California has become the first state in the nation to mandate comprehensive reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and take specific steps to reduce directly the amount of carbon emitted into the atmosphere from fuels and manufacturing facilities. And, it is anticipated that the federal government will adopt a similar but perhaps less ambitious program in the not too distant future.

PRACTICAL LAWYER 25
NO ONE LIKES to lose business. On the other hand, nobody can do business with everyone who might like to be a supplier or
a dealer. At one time or another, every company must turn others down when they ask to enter into a business relationship, or
must break off one relationship to pursue another.

17 State Tax Notes 1681
More than 10 years ago, in Scheiner v. American Trucking Ass’ns, Inc., the United States
Supreme Court held that flat, unapportioned state taxes on interstate truckers are unconstitutional
under the Commerce Clause; the Court reasoned that such levies create the risk of duplicative
taxation because they are not apportioned between the states, and inevitably have the effect of
discriminating against interstate businesses. In response to the holding in Scheiner, several states
candidly acknowledged that their flat motor carrier fees were unconstitutional.

Arbitration is widely hailed a means of reducing the time and expense of resolving disputes. But health care providers, credit card issuers, and other businesses often favor arbitration for an additional reason — it reduces the risk of a huge damages award. Litigation presents the danger of runaway juries, exorbitant punitive damages, and, perhaps the scariest feature, class actions that may require company-breaking payouts to thousands or even millions of plaintiffs. A recent California appellate court decision now has jeopardized the ability to avoid class actions through arbitration.

enormous amount of money involved -- estimates of California's potential refund liability ran
(somewhat improbably) as high as $4 billion -- guaranteed wide attention for the case in the press.
