For an eight hour shift, an employee is entitled to 2 (10 minute each) paid breaks, so in effect an employee works 7 hours and 40 minutes, yet gets paid for 8 hours.

It was scenarios exactly like that helped me to make my decision to place "former" before the title of owner on my resume. :~)  In CA if an employee quits then they do not get unemployment.

I fired a guy for stealing from me, he got unemployment despite my protests and contesting it to the ends of the earth. I would file with the EDD explaining the view that he walked off...
Instead of 1/2 real and 1/2 ready made, make a vegetarian brown sauce. Use it as the base in place of the 1/2 ready made to lower the cost of your product while still maintaining the quality.   Vegan Brown Sauce   Weight or Volume                                                                  Ingredients 1 cup                                                                                       red onions, chopped 1...
