Jurupa Valley, California

Jurupa Valley is a city located in Riverside County.  Jurupa Valley is home to more than 100,000 residents.  It covers approximately forty three square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 91752, 92509.  The City of Jurupa Valley was incorporated on July 1, 2011, by a group of passionate community volunteers. The primary reason for incorporation was the strong desire for enhanced police services and local control over planning and zoning issues. Jurupa Valley is rich in history dating back hundreds of years. “Jurupa” in Jurupa Valley derives its name from the first inhabitants of the area, Native Americans who called “Jurupa” their home. The Jurupa Valley area lies at the territorial boundaries of two different Tribes, the Gabrielino Tribe and the Serrano Tribe. Over the years, there have been various interpretations of the meaning of “Jurupa”, from a greeting meaning “peace and friendship” to the first padre to visit the area, to a more widely recognized origination that “Jurupa” refers to the California Sagebrush common to the area. In 1838, the area became known as Rancho Jurupa under a land grant to Senõr Don Juan Bandini by the Mexican government. By the late 1800s, the Jurupa Valley area began to live in the shadow of the more popular City of Riverside. Much of the Jurupa Valley area has what once was a Riverside mailing address. Yet, settlement of the area in and around what is now the City of Riverside actually began in the Jurupa Valley many years before Riverside’s founding. The City of Jurupa Valley today is a mix of high and low-density residential development, rural farming and other agricultural activities, and a mix of commercial retail and industrial activity. Two primary transportation corridors traverse the Jurupa Valley area, Interstate 15 which runs north and south, and State Highway 60, which runs east and west. It has been in recent years that residential development and economic activity has increased, in particular in the areas adjacent to the I-15 and Highway 60. The City has significant capacity for expansion of both residential and commercial development activity in the future.

Three Things Employers Should Consider Doing Before Firing an Employee

The process of letting somebody go is probably one of the most dreadful parts of being an employer. It's never fun to tell somebody that they are losing their job. Be that as it may, employee terminations are simply a part of running a business, particularly when the employer has more than just a small handful of employees. This blog will consider three things that an employer in California should consider doing whenever it becomes necessary to let someone go. Confirm That the Decision to Terminate is Not Based on A Reason Which is Illegal A good way to minimize the risk of exposure to potential claims of wrongful termination is for a company to employ a system of checks and balances which prevents a single person from making decisions without the benefit of a second set of eyes reviewing that decision. Stated differently, managers who make decisions regarding terminations should be required to explain their termination decisions and/or recommendations, as well as the basis for them. It is not uncommon for employees to work their way up the chain of command and, over the course of many years reach middle management positions. Being a hard worker and a dedicated employee does not necessarily qualify a manager to unilaterally decide who to fire and when to fire them. Sometimes managers make decisions without considering the legal repercussions, and that, of course, can be dangerous for the employer. For example, a manager might decide to let an employee go for attendance ... Read more

Three Things Employees Should Do When Complaining About Workplace Sexual Harassment

More often than not, an employee who finds him or herself in a position of coming forward with the sexual harassment complaint will be doing it for the first time, and will therefore have no prior experience to draw upon. The victim of workplace sexual harassment is often scared and does not know what to do. Here are three things that every employee should consider doing when complaining to his or her employer regarding unlawful sexual harassment in the workplace: Comply with the Employer’s Procedures for Making Complaints of Sexual Harassment Some employers will have written complaint procedures. Some employers, particularly the larger ones, will also have designated individuals who are assigned the task of handling employee complaints. Some might even have an employee complaint hotline. When an employee decides to file a complaint of workplace sexual harassment, he or she should make every effort to utilize those procedures. Be Persistent and Go Up the Chain of Command If You Must Some employees will finally muster the courage to make a complaint about sexual harassment in the workplace, but thereafter do nothing. This can be a mistake. While it is important to provide the employer with a reasonable opportunity to take corrective action, the failure to follow up with the employer’s representative regarding the status of the complaint can be a mistake. Employees working in the human resources department, like all other employees, sometimes fail to do what they're supposed to do, leave their jobs, go on a vacation, or ... Read more
