This web-log is devoted to all aspects of California Labor & Employment law. It is the editorial policy of this blog not to take positions on political issues as they pertain to these matters; however, this does not limit this web-log's intent to analyze, construe, and otherwise detail laws and politicians where relevant. This web-log is not a "blog of record," and the editor carefully selects those items he believes are newsworthy or relevant to the practice of labor and employment law, including legal, economic and political issues.
