New 2019 Labor Laws Affecting California Employers
With 2019 comes a host of new California employment laws that took effect on January 1.
Many of the new laws stemmed from the #MeToo movement and strengthen harassment protections, while others clear up ambiguities in laws that were passed last year, such as the ban on asking about an applicant's salary history. Still a few make small changes or may only affect employers in specific industries.

Owners Urged To Create "Pollinator Habitats"
According to a recent poll by the National Recreation and Park Association, 95% of Americans agree special efforts should be made to create designated areas where plants support the health and growth of pollinators, like honey bees and butterflies.
However, only about a third of Americans are confident they know what actions can be taken to help the conservation of pollinators.
The poll was conducted by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) in partnership with The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation in an effort to learn more about perceptions and educational needs regarding pollinator conservation.
Many local park and recreation agencies offer information or staff who can speak to the importance of conserving pollinators and can help educate community members on what actions they can take. Read More>
Should I Continue Marketing in the Off-Season?
By Mark Koep, CampgroundViews.com
One of the big questions we get is can or should I reduce or stop my advertising in the off-season or slow season? The source of the question is blatantly obvious from two points:
- If I am not making money why should I be spending it?
- If it is the slow season is it even worth advertising?
The answer to this question is a bit more complex than a yes or no to these questions.
To fully understand the answer to "Should I Continue Marketing in the Off-Season?" is to first understand your guests. Who are your guests? What do they look for in a campground? And, most importantly, when do they look for a campground?
Here is an interesting statistic on travel decision makers to help drive some thoughts on the topic...the average traveler begins planning their trip 56 days in advance of their travel, visiting 28 different websites over 76 different sessions. So if you want guests to stay the moment you open on April 1 that means you better be advertising and reaching them as early as Feb 1. Read More>
