Governor signs AB 1245 sponsored by SB Cal/ Ab 525 Op Ed/Sept. 22 IIPP Workshop in Madera, CA.

Yesterday the Governor signed the bill sponsored by Small Business California  requiring all businesses to file their EDD reports online. The bill will require businesses with 10 employees or more to comply with  this requirement by 2017 and for businesses with less than 10 by 2018.  Note there is a exemption for businesses that don’t have the technology to do this. Also note Small Business California stressed the importance of a marketing plan to reach out to small  businesses around the state to help them do this. Currently only 35% of businesses file online.
We sponsored this because we believe filing online is more efficient for small businesses , cuts down on errors and will gives businesses an immediate receipt of filing.
It should also be noted it will save about $8 million for EDD and some of that money can be used for the outreach to small businesses.

In today's Chronicle I did an Op-Ed piece on why we are supporting AB525. This is the bill that gives some protections to Franchisees in negotiating with Franchisors. Please see link to Op-ED

For those of you in the Madera area please note that September 22 an Injury and Illness Prevention Program  training   session will be held.These training sessions are being held around the state. As all of you should know every business with employees is required to have a written IIPP and it must be effective meaning you cant just have the document but must remind employee at your safety meetings.

Dear Friends,

I am excited to share with you an upcoming IIPP training we have scheduled for Tuesday, September 22, 2015 in Madera, CA. Any help you can provide in helping us promote this training is greatly appreciated. Attached is the course flyer. As you know, this is a free class designed to help small business owners and managers create or improve their health and safety program that helps them into compliance with Cal/OSHA's IIPP standard.
