About La Quinta, California

La Quinta is a city located in Riverside County.  “La Quinta” is a Spanish idiom meaning “the country villa.” La Quinta is home to more than 40,000 residents.  It covers approximately thirty five square miles and encompasses the following zip code: 92253. In the late-19th century and early-20th century agriculture developed in present-day La Quinta and “East Valley.” At the time, California and federal land surveyors declared the sand dunes uninhabitable, only the hard rock ground of the “Marshall Cove” held potential farming and residential development. In 1926, Walter Morgan established the La Quinta Resort at the northern section of Marshall Cove as a type of secluded hideaway for nearby Hollywood’s celebrities and socialites. The Resort was the site for the Coachella Valley’s first golf course, coinciding with the construction and pavement of State Route 111 in the 1930s.  As nearby desert cities grew to capacity, La Quinta’s growth rose dramatically by the mid-1980s, which led to its incorporation as a city in 1982. As travel to the desert became easier, Los Angeles residents began making trips to the area. La Quinta was named for the La Quinta Resort. In the 1980 census, La Quinta had 4,200 residents, then increased to 11,215 by 1990 in the city’s early phases of residential area growth. It was predominantly a part-time community until around that time. The City of La Quinta is booming with a growing population, as well as a large seasonal population of “snow birds.”

Featured Employment Case

Ragsdale v. Wolverine World Wide, Inc. 535 U.S. 81, 122 S. Ct. 1155, 152 L. Ed. 2d 167 (2002)

This is a United States Supreme Court case from 2002.  This case revolved around the interpretation of the notice provisions of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the consequences of an employer’s failure to provide proper notice to an employee. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that provides eligible employees with certain job-protected leave for specific family and medical reasons. It requires that employers provide employees with notice of their rights and responsibilities under the FMLA. In this case, Patricia Ragsdale, an employee of Wolverine World Wide, Inc., took a leave of absence from work due to medical reasons. During her leave, the employer failed to provide her with the notice required by the FMLA that explained her rights and obligations. When Ragsdale returned to work, her employment was terminated. She sued Wolverine World Wide, Inc., claiming that the failure to provide the required notice invalidated the termination of her employment. The Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, held that the failure to provide the required notice did not invalidate the termination of Ragsdale’s employment. The Court ruled that the FMLA contained a “no-fault” provision that excused an employer’s failure to provide notice if the employee did not suffer any actual harm as a result of the failure. In other words, a technical violation of the notice requirement did not automatically invalidate employment actions if the employee was not harmed or prejudiced by the lack of notice. The case clarified that under the FMLA, a violation of notice provisions would only have consequences if the employee could demonstrate that they suffered harm or prejudice as a result of the employer’s failure to provide the required notice. In this case, because Ragsdale did not suffer harm, her termination was not invalidated solely on the basis of the notice violation. This decision had significant implications for the interpretation of notice requirements under the FMLA and the consequences of non-compliance with those requirements.
