Travel and Drive Time during Training

Drive Travel Time During an Employee new hire training  in California

A few years when we open a small pilot office in California and we had to hire an employee training was essential on the way we were doing business.

Some of the considerations we had to think off was will it be compulsory for that person, where will be held and how far commute will  that person have to do to get to the raining venue.

Looking at Federal jurisdictions for one travel time is not necessarily compensated and training hours may or may not be classified work.hours.

However after doing our research the State of California is more pro employee and supercedes Federal laws.

This meant that since the person is mandated to go to training and travel to the location both travel and training time are work time and must comply with overtime pay as well as most of the time it involves more than an 8.hour day.

A lot of other business owners or even HR generalist even from established companies tend to confuse these as they may have developed travel time policies generally tailored to Federal statutes.

Any small business owner operating in California should  be looking at both Federal and Stare laws to avoid any confusion which could be hefty penalties.

America's Dreyus Nixon's Case to Trump's Present Scenario

America's Dreyfus written by Bestselling Author Joan Brady author of the Theory of War writes on the trial of the century during the Nixon years. Similar to incumbent Donald Trump, Richard Nixon also had a single aim in life, "Win".
In 2016 this book had so many reviews about the real story of Alger Hiss. Joan Brady believes that Hiss was innocent but thinks, as did many of his friends at the time, that he was suicidally naive about what he faced. Chambers had appeared before HUAC in 1948 and, in the fashion of the day, had produced a list of alleged communists in government service.
The main summary of this book is that it is about the dirty tricks employed by Richard Nixon and his allies in the late 1940s and early 1950s to secure the conviction of Alger Hiss, a former government official, on a trumped-up charge of perjury. 
Thus, the start of the discussion on the statements of conversations could have been taped, was just a strategy to ensure the loyalty of Former FBI …

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails

New Book Reveals Hillary Clinton Spied on Campaign Staff Emails



Touching on Hillary's campaign rift with the Democratic party and talking about the reluctance of supporters of Bernie Sanders in supporting Clinton as front runner sort of explained initially why people then thought they had a flawed presidential candidate.



The book discusses on Clinton's winning the popular vote yet was not really successful in getting a lot of Senator Sanders supporters. Although Sec. Clinton's campaign staff are her deep loyalist, she spent enormous amounts of time asking existential questions to them.



Yet in summary although the book centers around on the ultimate failure of Hillary, the problematic circumstances and fiasco has nothing to do with her.

Stalin and The Psychology Behind North Korea, Why It Is A Country Hard to Understand for many

The Real North Korea by Andrei Lankov published in 2013 talks about the birth of the regime in 1947 after the election of Kim Il Sung known as "Liberator of Small Nations Generalissimo Stalin!"
Thus, the book describes that since 1972, all North Koreans above 16 years old are required to patch a badge showing Kim Il Sung's visage when they leave their homes. Likewise Kim Il Sung's portraits were to be placed at every office and house. As it goes by 1980 portraits of his successor son Kim Jong Il were displayed side by side his father. By the 90's Kim chng-suk, Kim Il Sung's wife and Kim Jong Il's mother were added. There were special instructions on hoe such images were supposed to be maintained in pristine condition as one would be punishable should they be missing or damaged. 
Parts of the book describes how Kim Il Sung spent some years in the Soviet Union while the complete media control of the regime. This book authored by Andrei Lankov is so far I'…
