Oct. 2, 2012 - PRLog -- ‘If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.’ Sound familiar? That quotes been around for a long time and has been attributed to everyone from Benjamin Franklin to Winston Churchill. The reason it’s been around so long? It’s absolutely true; and in this day and age, the ramifications are particularly onerous for small businesses. Whether you’re just starting out, or a seasoned professional, your first priority should address what steps to take to insure your business, and the technology that runs it, are bulletproof and can not only withstand, but thrive, regardless of any calamity that might come your way.

That’s why San Ramon and the Walnut Creek Law Offices of Israel & Samuels LLP have collaborated to present a FREE Lunch & Learn seminar on disaster-proofing your business, Thursday, October 18th from 11AM-1PM. The seminar will be held at the Danville Chamber of Commerce (Conference Room A), 117E Town and Country Drive, in Danville.

Part 1 will focus on Employment Law, one of the most complex and perplexing topics for many business owners. Small Business Attorney Eric Samuels address questions such as:

■What are the ‘Wage and Hour’ laws, and how do they affect you?
■Are you sure you know the difference between an exempt and non-exempt employee?
■How a simple error can cost you thousands and thousands of dollars?
■What’s the difference between an employee and an independent contractor? Are there any gray areas? Do you have any potential problems?
■Do you need to have an employee manual? What needs to be in it?
Eric will provide the tools to help you to determine whether you are fully compliant, partially compliant, or out in left field somewhere waiting for a big fine. If the answer is anything other than “My business is in fine shape”, the time is now to take corrective action and shut that barn door before the horses are stolen.

Part 2 will center on your data backups: how to recover from a disaster, and how to plan for the survivability of your business in the event your systems fail. Statistics show that more than 1 in 4 businesses will experience a disaster over the course of a year and that 43% of those without a disaster recovery plan never reopen. With the ever-present risk of technology troubles like electrical outages, server failures, fire, and communications service breakdowns,  it’s easy to see that disaster recovery and business continuity must be a central part of your organization’s planning. Jim Erickson, Owner of Web Dispatch will demystify the disaster recovery process and help insure that your data is safe in case of emergency.

During this session you’ll discover:

■The two-step backup system you must have in place to be 100% certain your business is back up and running FAST in the event of a sudden, fatal server crash or disaster.
■What you must have in place to ensure a fast, complete recovery of your data in the event of a data-erasing disaster.
■How to get your business back up and running in the shortest possible time.
■What you need to do to plan for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity.
