President's Message - Balance is the Key to Long-Term Happiness and Success

By Jeff Braun, P.E. Balance is the key to long-term happiness and success. The balance that immediately comes to most adults minds is the work-life balance. While this is important, it is not the balance I’m addressing in this message.  We all recognize the drive and hunger in our most successful role models and peers. They appear to never be satisfied with their current state, always looking for opportunities to learn more skills, become more efficient, and design and construct amazing projects to improve our built environment.

Law and CE News - New California Hiring Laws

By Collins Collins Muir + Stewart LLP On October 12, 2017, Governor Brown amended Labor Code section 432.3 to prevent questions about an applicant’s salary history. The ostensible purpose is to prevent the perpetuation of discrimination based on race or gender in pay and to push employers to offer salaries based on market value.   The new law therefore prohibits all Californian employers, including state and local governments, from seeking information about an applicant’s prior salary, compensation, or benefits. This means employers cannot ask for an applicant’s prior salary or use information about an applicant’s such salary in the hiring process. While the law does not prohibit an applicant from voluntarily disclosing salary history or related information, the employer may not consider or rely on that voluntary disclosure in determining salary or whether to make an offer.
