How broken contracts impact businesses

Businesses need several tools to be successful. These include financial resources, technology, quality customer service, and stable leadership. While all of them are important, it is the relationship a company builds with others that help determine its long-term prosperity.

Addressing frivolous lawsuits

Frivolous lawsuits are the last thing any small business wants to deal with. Unfortunately, any owner can be susceptible to them – and it can be a big headache for everyone involved. It just goes to show that no matter how strategic and careful an organization is, it can still be subject to petty litigation.

Accommodations for your worker with autism

Temple Grandin, a renowned professor of animal science at Colorado State University, said "the world needs all kinds of minds" in her Ted Talk back in 2013. Ms. Grandin, like many others across the United States, lives with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which is previously known as autism. The disorder is difficult to characterize because individual cases vary greatly. Some common behaviors of ASD include social awkwardness, sensitivity to external stimuli and repeated actions or body motions.

AB5 could change definitions of contractor and employee

Protesters made their way through the California Capitol building last week, pressuring lawmakers to pass AB5, a bill that would require companies like Uber and Lyft to treat their workers as employees instead of independent contractors. The legislature has to decide on AB5 before the end of their session on Sept. 13. Both rideshare companies and their workers have thrown a lot of time and money into lobbying the issue. California Governor Gavin Newsom has even said that if Uber and Lyft want a say in the decision, they will have to arrange an agreement with labor groups or face “insurmountable” opposition.

Insurers help design disaster-resistant homes

Some of the most beautiful properties in California are unfortunately in areas prone to fires and other human-made or natural disasters. Those who wish and can afford to build there nevertheless still want to avoid receiving money property losses – there has been $170 billion paid in property losses here in the U.S. since 2016. With climate change a reality, that number is likely to continue to rise. This has led insurers to get involved with the planning and building of properties.
