Calabria Group’s Season of Giving

In December 2021, Calabria Group kicked off the season of giving by donating to charities that mean the most to our employees and have directly impacted them. This lead us to working with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Ronald McDonald House of Northern California, and the Special Olympics of Northern California. Our employees connected directly with members of the organization and snapped a few photos along the way! It was a pleasure to connect with such moving organizations in our community.
To find out more about the organizations we worked with and how you can help, visit their websites:

Did You Remember to Make Necessary Changes to Comply with New 2022 State and Local Wage-Hour Laws?

December is not the shortest month of the year, but it always seems to go by the fastest. And with holidays and vacations, not to mention employees working remotely, it’s not unusual for matters to be put off until the new year — or for a project or two to fall through the cracks. Oftentimes, there are no real consequences if a project gets pushed off into the new year. But that’s not the case with new state or local wage-hour laws.
