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.

Navigating Overtime Exemptions: A Guide to California Labor Laws

Overtime pay is a critical aspect of ensuring fair compensation for employees who work overtime hours. However, California law recognizes certain exemptions that relieve employers from the obligation to pay overtime to specific categories of workers. In this blog post, we'll explore the various exemptions from overtime pay under California law, shedding light on the criteria that determine whether an employee falls within these exemptions. Executive Exemption The executive exemption generally applies to employees in managerial or supervisory roles. The exemption applies where the employer can show: (1) that the employee customarily and regularly directs the work of at least two or more other employees; (2) that the employee has the authority to hire and fire, or to command particularly serious attention to his or her recommendations regarding such actions; and (3) that the employee is "primarily" engaged in more than 50% of worktime "duties that meet the test of the exemption." Administrative Exemption Employees engaged in administrative, office, or non-manual work may be exempt from overtime if their primary duties involve office or non-manual work directly related to the management or general business operations of the employer, and they exercise discretion and independent judgment. “Administrative employees" are those whose primary duties are directly related to management policies or general business operations of the employer or its customers, as distinguished from "production employees" whose primary duty is producing the goods or services that the employer produces. Professional Exemption The professional exemption applies to employees in learned or creative professions. To ... Read more

Navigating Equality: Understanding Disability Discrimination Laws in California

In California's diverse workplaces, creating an environment that values equal treatment under the law is essential. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) plays a critical role in preventing discrimination on various grounds, including discrimination based on disability. In this blog post, we'll explore the practical aspects of disability discrimination laws under FEHA and hopefully provide some insight for both employees and employers. The Foundation: California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) At the heart of California's commitment to fairness in the workplace is the FEHA. This legislation prohibits discrimination based on various characteristics. One of the protected characteristics is disability. The FEHA declares as public policy "that it is necessary to protect and safeguard the right and opportunity of all persons to seek, obtain, and hold employment without discrimination" on the basis of physical or mental disability or various other factors the statute enumerates. California Government Code § 12920 Prohibited Forms of Disability Discrimination The FEHA proscribes two types of disability discrimination: (1) discrimination arising from an employer's intentionally discriminatory act against an employee because of his or her disability (disparate treatment discrimination), and (2) discrimination resulting from an employer's facially neutral practice or policy that has a disproportionate effect on employees suffering from a disability (disparate impact discrimination). The Broad Scope of Disabilities FEHA's strength lies in its broad definition of disability. The FEHA prohibits discrimination against individuals who have a "physical disability, mental disability or medical condition." California Government Code § 12920 A "physical disability" includes ...
