I visited the new establishment, Cassie’s Deli for lunch. It’s only a week old and they have already more business then they can handle. Cassies is a deli that utilizes Italian meats, cheeses, and vegetables. The interior of shop models brick walls, wooden floors, and modern hanging lights complimenting the theme of the location to be “Small family place, good food. Everyone minds his business. Perfect.” 
I had their Goodfella (sandwich) which had various fresh and unique flavors of Salami, Pimento, and Spinach making it well worth the price.

2018 Employment Law Highlights:

Employment Law Seminar Update (as of January 1 2018) shared some powerful stuff that will really empower employees in California here are some highlights:

1. It is illegal for employers to ask about previous pay in a job interview.

2. Ban the Box: if you were convicted as a felon and have paid your dues, there is no box for you to check in an application, (huge benefits to first impressions). The only way criminal history will come up is in a background check, which would effect conditional terms of a job offering. Many positions don’t require this.

3. Employers cannot voluntarily let ICE in to their place of business without a warrant.

4. If you are required to bring your own hand tools to work, then you should be paid at least double the minimum wage ($21 or $22 an hour depending on whether your employer has more than 25 employees or not).

5. If you use personal cell phones and internet for work, you are entitled to some level of reimbursement, depending on the percentage of time such items are utilized for work. #employmentlaw  #empowerthepeople
