WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

to tell you about all their services, fees and how often they can come. They are so proud of their well-managed team of professionals, who actually enjoy their job, and honored that so many have chosen them to take care of their home and business for so many years.

No Housework This Weekend! Well, the 4th of July is just around the corner and the local farmers are bringing in the harvest every day. This is when our famous Brentwood Sweet Corn makes it to our local Safeway, U-pick farm stands of Harvest Time in Brentwood and your dinner table. That, along with our other local fruit and vegetables, it is the perfect time of year to invite your friends and family over for weekend of fun. What a great time to check in on a local business who can get you ready for the crowd. Class Act Cleaning Services has been in this area for 30 years and is family owned and operated. Here at the Monthly Grapevine, we are super excited to have Class Act be this month’s Snoop, because, they are indeed a class act and recommended by many of us here. As soon as you talk to Traci, you know you have made the right choice for your home or office. She will take the time

I think the part I personally like best about their services is they are so thorough and professional. And, they are licensed, bonded and fully insured. Now the good part, THEY DO WINDOWS! Well, of course they do. But I thought you would enjoy the humor. In addition, they clean counters, stoves, inside and outside of appliances, dust, vacuum, empty trash, dust baseboards, pictures, sills, stair rails, and all furniture. Your glass and mirrors will sparkle and they will even change your bed sheets. This is a ten pointer, as I hate stretching those fitted sheets over the corners. Another plus, they will even clean your fridge, blinds, tile grout, floors, carpet and did I mention windows? They will even rescreen your screens. And all of this is just your home, how about your business? You can actually grab your brief case and Class Act will take out the trash, dust, vacuum, clean your floors and totally clean the break room and bathroom.

“Start the car!” you are on your way home with no worries. I hope you are considering Class Act at this time, but there is more. They will clean the outside of your home or office, up to two stories, and steam clean walkways and driveways too! I told you these guys were a class act. And, finally, they accept all major credit cards. So, Traci Bernal and the entire team of Class Act Cleaning Services, this secret shopper gives you 10 feather dusters for taking such good care of all of us and bringing your professionalism and excellent customer service to the industry. You are amazing! Who will be snooped next, could it be you?

Class Act can be reached at 925-706-772 or visit their website classacthousecleaning. com. Find their coupon in this month’s issue for 10% off!

Who’s Who... in East County

With a love for creating beautiful haircuts combined with a love of children, Adela Camacho opened Lollipop Haircut Shop in 2007. Being an owner gives Adela a lot of flexibility, allowing her to bring her ideas to life and work hard doing what she loves! That love comes through with each and every haircut, wash & style. Lollipop is a hair salon that offers haircuts for children and adults, hair styling, and a variety of professional hair care products for the whole family. The salon environment is very child friendly and is equipped with car styling chairs, TV's, and a waiting area full of toys and books to keep the little ones entertained, so both children and adults can enjoy a nice haircut. In addition, Adela keeps up with the latest trends by offering feathers, bling strands, color rub, etc. And, for those special first haircuts, they offer an adorable "first haircut package,” which includes a certificate, small picture and a lock of hair.

With an atmosphere geared towards kids, the little ones take notice the minute they enter the salon. What the adults will appreciate is the quality of the haircuts. Adela says, “The fact that we can give a good haircut on a moving target still amazes us!” And their prices are reasonable. There is not a salon like them in the area, and their prices are very competitive with local “regular” salons. They want customers to come to them without feeling like they are breaking the bank. In addition, the ladies of the Lollipop Haircut Shop say it makes them very proud to see customers happy and excited to return. They would like customers to have fun and leave the shop, relaxed, satisfied and feeling like they got their money’s worth. Appointments and walk-ins are always welcome.

PATRICK MCCARRAN

Going Green: Seeing the Light If you want to be ecofriendly and want to help the environment, yet worry that making changes in your home will be costly or inconsequential, think about lighting. Making-energy efficient home improvements doesn’t have to mean sweeping changes. You can help do your share to go green and creating a better carbon footprint for your house by taking a first step and start changing out your lights. Recent studies have reported that 80% of homebuyers identify energy savings and comfortable surroundings as key factors when deciding between listings, so more agents today are working with home sellers on innovative energy, environmental and ecological approaches and opportunities for selling the home. One simple and easy change concerns the lighting in your house. Today’s green

lighting isn’t limited to the fluorescent light bulbs to which most people have quickly adapted. There are plenty of other options including LED gaining in popularity as a viable and affordable home-lighting source.

Energy-efficient lighting can also be used in exterior fixtures of the home as well, such as around any deck, pool, patio or garden. These low-energy emitting lights are perfect complements to any outdoor features you want to show off.

LED is a energy-efficient, semi-conducting light source that started growing in popularity in 2007. In the past, LED lighting appeared as unattractive blue hues but today’s LED lighting offers the same bright white output or a warm color option that was the staple of incandescent lighting. LED light now come in all shapes and sizes including chandelier faux flames lights and four foot tubes to retrofit your garage fixtures. You buy a retrofit for your can lights or recessed lighting that is a simply switch out. LED lighting can also be used as a tool in some areas of the home that will better showcase features when one looks around. From track lighting over the fireplace to undercounter cabinet lighting to can lighting in the hall, LED fixtures can cast dramatic light on your home’s best features.

FERBER LAW

An Epic Win for Employers: United States Supreme Court Endorses Class Action Waivers Employers across the nation received a green light from the United States Supreme Court in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis (May 2018) to include class action waivers in arbitration agreements. The Court specifically concluded that arbitration agreements which provide for individualized arbitration preventing class actions do not violate the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The decision was the result of three separate cases wherein plaintiffs claimed wage and hour violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Plaintiffs had signed arbitration agreements, executed as a condition of employment, barring class actions but argued that such a provision infringed upon their rights of “concerted activity” pursuant to the NLRA. The court concluded otherwise and determined that the NLRA “concerted activities” section

was directed only to the right to bargain or organize unions collectively, not the right to a collective action proceeding, such as a wage and hour class action under the Federal Arbitration Act. The decision resolves a split amongst the federal circuits, and actually confirms what had already been state law in California. Recall that in 2014, the California Supreme Court upheld express class action waivers in the context of employee-employer relationships by concluding that such waivers do not violate public policy (Iskanian v. CLS. Transp. Los Angeles, LLC). However, the, Iskanian court specifically excluded from its ruling representative actions brought under the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA). The holding in Epic Systems does not change the fact that class action waivers are still unenforceable as applied to PAGA actions in California. Unfortunately, we can expect to see a continued increase in the rate of filing of PAGA actions. As always, the California wage and hour labyrinth continues its web of intricate twists and turns. If you are considering instituting an arbitration agreement as a condition of employment, or need review of a current agreement, contact

Julie Ann Giammona of Ferber Law in our Brentwood satellite office at jgiammona@ferberlaw.com or visit www. ferberlaw.com. Julie Ann is a resident of Brentwood and has almost 30 years of experience representing employers in labor and employment matters. Julie Ann is a passionate and loyal advocate for business owners. She defends employers against wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination and wage and hour issues in state and federal courts, at administrative hearings, and at arbitrations and mediations. Her analytic and strategic mind allows Julie Ann to immediately spot issues and build a comprehensive plan to affect resolution.
