“SDEA is an excellent resource for California business owners.

Everyone I’ve worked with is knowledgeable, friendly, prompt in their response to questions, and has a sincere desire to help. I have attended several SDEA seminars and they are timely and informative in ever-changing HR law. I recommended SDEA to all of those who I know that are starting a business and hiring employees. Fees are very reasonable for the amount of service provided.”

“Even with my professional background in corporate HR, I can’t begin to express how valuable SDEA has been to us

when I’ve needed help with things such as putting together our handbook and training programs but also when I needed a second opinion on a legal matter.  SDEA is  also very helpful in providing forms, templates, compliance posters, and so much more.  They have been a valuable resource to us and I can’t imagine not having their support”.

“Top notch organization and resource for employers. 

I have been a member via my business for 10 years. Jennifer and Molly are awesome. Always honest, helpful and resourceful. Their annual employment law update is my go-to to get updates on nee CA laws. I have used them for trainings and mock audits. I highly recommend them. Been around for over 100 years”.

“Jennifer at SDEA has been absolutely amazing for our company.

She has guided us with our many questions over the past year, and she has served as a crucial resource for our company in so many HR specific areas. Although we have an HR Representative in our company, we communicate with SDEA on an on-going basis to answer our questions and help guide us. We have learned so much that we would never have known had we not worked with SDEA. Jennifer has always made us feel welcomed to ask her questions, SDEA has help put together our Company Handbook, and SDEA has also helped us in very crucial times where we were not sure what to do with specific decisions. I 100% recommend Jennifer and SDEA as the best association for your HR and employment needs. I honsetly do not know how our business would function correctly without SDEA!.”

“I have been so happy with having SDEA as an HR partner for our small business. 

They are a quick phone call away to help advise on important HR rules or any gray areas that come up on a daily basis in dealing with employees, terminations, performance reviews, leave requests, handbook updates, time off policies, etc. I feel much more equipped having Jen, Molly and the whole SDEA team by my side as an extension of our team at SSA. I highly recommend their invaluable membership!.”
