Why is new hire reporting required in California?

New and expanding businesses in California are no doubt aware of the numerous requirements and processes that go into hiring a new employee, contractor or seasonal worker. In California, the number one goal is to create a safe, fair and accessible job market so that businesses and their employees can flourish. But understandably, many small businesses and start-up companies can get frustrated at all the hoops they have to jump through. While excessive reporting and paperwork requirements can require significant administrative time, it does help to know that some of these requirements have a noble purpose behind them.

Who pays for legal fees in a contract dispute?

People in the construction industry know that some disagreements and misunderstandings are an inevitable part of almost every single project. In a complicated construction project, architects, contractors, subcontractors and other parties are all expected to speak the same language and hold up their end of the bargain, but when something goes wrong, each party scrambles to protect themselves from liability. Whether it is a design flaw, construction defect, delay or failure to perform, contract disputes happen, and when they do, these parties need to reach a solution. Sometimes that solution isn't possible without litigation or arbitration, but before things every get that far, it's important that contractors protect themselves by drafting and executing good contracts.

Economic optimism spurs construction growth

People in the construction industry in California may have found themselves a bit busier now than they have been in recent years, as new projects and new opportunities seem to be coming around after a long-dormant period of economic recession. The good news is that this optimistic outlook appears to be widespread, and hopefully will translate to continued economic success in several major California markets in the coming years.

Confidence in construction litigation starts with experience

People in the construction business know that there is no substitute for experience. No two projects are ever the same, and the dozens of minor issues that are likely to arise in the course of a construction project may not have the same solution every time. So how do construction professionals and small businesses get the edge they need to successfully compete for bids, complete projects and avoid the common pitfalls that are common in the industry, all while turning a profit? The answer lies in having the experience and knowledge to handle any construction litigation situation.
