Letters of Intent

Letters of Intent

A letter of intent (“LOI”) may be used to identify and frame the deal terms of a potential transaction. LOIs may be binding, non-binding, or partially binding. In our experience, effective LOIs are typically partially binding, with the non-binding provisions relating to the description of the transaction, price, quantity, or delivery and with the binding provisions relating to the parties’ duties of confidentiality, due diligence, and exclusivity.

Compensating Employees for Workplace Injuries

Compensating Employees for Workplace Injuries

Employees must be paid for the time spent waiting for and receiving medical attention for a work-related injury (e.g., initial doctor visit). In fact, under the California Labor Code, employees are entitled to receive reimbursement for reasonable expenses, along with lost wages, when they submit to an examination by a physician at the request of the employer, the insurer, the administrative director, the appeals board, or a workers’ compensation administrative law judge.
