San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce
STATEMENT FROM THE SAN DIEGO REGIONAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
SAN DIEGO (April 12, 2012) – The Chamber praises the decision made by the California Supreme Court regarding Brinker Restaurant Corp v. Superior Ct. After more than eight years of litigation, California businesses are finally free from a significant burden that has a critical bearing on how each business manages its employees.
In 2009, the Chamber led a local effort to file an amicus brief in the Brinker Corporation suit – an unprecedented step for the Chamber. We are proud of this effort because it helps to protect businesses from undue regulatory burdens and relieve small businesses of potential costs associated with litigation. This decision will have a positive impact on San Diego businesses, as well as their employees.
--Ruben Barrales, president and CEO of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce
