Kao v. Joy Holiday

Wage-and-hour requirements cannot be avoided by classifying an alien who has not yet received his work visa as a "trainee" where the company derives benefits from his efforts. In determining whether an employee is salaried, as opposed to hourly, nonmonetary benefits may not be considered in determining if recompense is at the minimum level for salaried employees.

Heimlich v. Shivji

Party was not required to present his Code of Civil Procedure Sec. 998 request for costs to an arbitrator before the arbitration award was rendered, because an offer which is not accepted "cannot be given in evidence upon the trial or arbitration." In the course of his request to confirm the arbitration award, party established that the arbitrator had refused to hear any evidence of opposing party's rejection of Sec. 998 offer. Party timely presented his Sec. 998 claim to the arbitrator, the arbitrator should have reached the merits of that claim, and the arbitrator's refusal to hear evidence of the Sec. 998 offer warranted partially vacating the arbitration award.
