Hiring of Unemployed/ Lee Petillion

Legislation has been introduced in Washington prohibiting employers from not hiring people who are not employed. Apparently there are a number of employers that are putting on their job information sheets that people should only apply if they are employed. New Jersey is the only state in the country at this time that prohibits this. As small business people how do you feel about this?

Lee Petillion has been elected to the Board of Small Business California. Lee is an attorney at Petillion Hiraide and Loomis with offices in LA and South Bay. He specializes in corporate financing for early and growth stages companies. He will be heading up the access to capital committee for Small Business California.

We are excited about having Lee on our Board as he has a great background in access to capital for small business. He also has experience in writing legislation to help small business and with his help Small Business California will be introducing legislation next year to help access capital.
