    Gender Equity Pay Law: Fair Ways to Challenge Wage Gaps!

    in Business

    Join us today for Women Lead Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of Women Who Lead, interviews Denise Visconti, Office Managing Shareholder at Littler Mendelson, P.C.
    As of January 1st, 2016, California employers are required to adhere to the Fair Pay Act, SB 358, which prohibits employers from paying employees differently based on gender.  Employers must have a non-sex-based reason, or a reason that is supported by an identifiable business necessity, for any differentials that might exist between the compensation they are paying employees performing “substantially similar work.”  
    This new law also allows employees to discuss their salary and wages and ask questions of their employer relating to compensation without fear of retribution.  Under the Fair Pay Act, not only is this type of discussion allowed, and therefore enables everyone to determine if they are being paid an equal wage for “substantially similar work,” but such discussions are protected.  Any employee who asks questions about their pay or takes action to rectify an existing wage gap also is protected.
    Denise specializes in employment and wage and hour litigation. She also regularly counsels employers regarding compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations that govern the workplace.
    As the CEO and Co-Founder of Connected Women of Influence, Michelle Bergquist is a passionate advocate for women in business. At Connected Women of Influence, we believe that more women need to lead in business and everything we do is center-focused on designing platforms, programs, connections and collaborative opportunities for b2b women to prosper, succeed and lead the way in business today!

    Ep. 23: I Hope This F*cking Works! Ugh!

    in Personal Journals

    I just can't get a great sound! Not unless I pay $400 minimum to direct connect with BlogTalkRadio. I don't have an income. My spinal cord injury & spinal arthritis prevents me from obtaining employment. It's difficult to find a job that would allow me to lay in bed 3 or 4 times a day to relieve the pain in my spine. So, anyways.... I just rewired the gear. I hope it sounds ok, live.

    Gone But Not Forgotten on Brunch In The Basement With JaVonne

    in Music

    On this segment of Brunch In The Basement with JaVonne, we take time to talk about and listen to some of the music of our legendary singers who have passed away. Some left us way too soon, Like Aaliyah, Minnie Riperton, Phyllis Hyman, Biggie, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Gerald Levert, Heavy D, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, and Tupac. What might they be giving us and feeding us today had they lived longer. And then those voices that I grew up on, Billie Holiday, Barry White,  Rick James, Teddy Pendergrass, McFadden and Whitehead, not to mention our recently fallen angels like Natalie Cole and Maurice White. This show will pay honor to as many as we can discuss in two hours. Please join us for this tribute and Brunch in the Basement with JaVonne.

    Super Bowl 50 Preview: Broncos or Panthers; race issue? Fantasy done in US?

    in Football

    Our super Bowl picks.  A big game because Boychic and I are both 7-3 in the playoffs.  And that is all that matters.


    Is this a make or break Super Bowl for Cam Newton?  And what about the race question.


    More on the L-A relocation.  We think we know what will happen next season. 


    Will you pay attention to half-time show?


    And fantasy sports is still a jumble.  We don’t really know if it will be here or where.  I’m just back from the world’s biggest gaming convention in London and I witnessed a new fantasy sports site.


    Banks closing down fantasy sports.


    Kap wants to go to the Jets?


    Johnny Manziel might have worse problems than his arm.  We’ll go into some rumors and reports.


    Eric Snyder is the author of a book on the Raiders and Raider Nation.  You can hear him on the Power Hour on 1340 Fox Sports Radio in Las Vegas.


    I have the Panthers winning 23-16.  It think it goes down to the last series and the kickers are involved.  A few days ago I thought this might be a blow out, but as I looked further I think it is going to be a good one.  I am still worried about the Denver defensive injuries -- even though reports say they played at full speed.  Overall, I think the Panthers are loose.  I think they are a better team but I think the Denver experience keeps them real close.  Who you got?


    You can follow me on Twitter and Facebook at John Daly Sports. 


    Folks, thanks for following and tuning in.  Enjoy the game.

    Truth Be Told

    in Christianity

    Proverbs 13:11-13


    11 Dishonest money dwindles away,
        but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
    12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
        but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
    13 Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it,
        but whoever respects a command is rewarded.

    Health & Wellness Show - Feb 5, 2016 - Depression and the Insanity of the World

    in Health

    Corruption, war, human suffering, disease - there's seemingly no end to the level of insanity and evil that prevades the world around us. It's unsurprising that many who are paying attention will succumb to feelings of depression, anxiety and an intense lonliness.


    What's the right perspective to hold on the insanity that surrounds us? How can we continue to function when the world seems bent on descending into chaos? Are we really alone in our unceasing efforts to pay attention to reality, left and right? Is there anything left to be hopeful for?


    All these subjects and more will be explored today, as we look into how to stay sane in a world gone mad. With us, as always, will be resident animal health expert Zoya, with her weekly Pet Health Segment. Join us Fridays at 10am EST for the SOTT Radio Network's Health and Wellness Show.

    Sacrifice now for a greater reward later.

    in Entertainment

    Today we are going to be talking about what it means to pay now for a greater reward later.  Some of us are so caught up on the here and now that we miss the prviliege of the journey and therefore we miss out on what life has to offer.  Our culture and society has been conditioned to look for instant gratification and I will tell you that in most cases...that means stagnation.  When we do not look to the future we can get caught not preparing for it and thus not having one.  Yes, it is important to live for today...but what if tomorrow comes...are you ready!
