Corra Group recently attended the 2018 ATX Automation Technology Show, in Anaheim, California. The show is branded as the largest design manufacturing conference in North America’s, and a “don’t miss experience.” Hundreds of exhibitors have on display and in demo mode products for automation technology, robotics, and 3 D Printing.

“Corra Group is based in El Segundo, California,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. El Segundo is one of the premier centers for defense, aerospace, robotics, and advanced technology. In El Segundo, some of the major innovators in this space are our neighbors. Corra Group offers its employment screening services to these companies as well as to business entities national and globally. With all the changes in the working environment, automation and robotics are key components in the expanding modern industries.

“The ATX Automation Technology Show was a major success,” said Basichis. “There were far more exhibitors than last year, and attendance had to be triple of what it was for the previous show. When I spoke to clients and other exhibitors, they told me business were coming to buy. Companies had extra financial allocations, based on the recent corporate tax cuts, and now they were looking to upgrade their manufacturing facilities.”

Basichis noted that the technology has improved in just the past year. He pointed out that the robots were cheaper, faster, and more sophisticated. He cited how some didn’t require their own power source but could run simply by plugging them into any standard electric outlet.

California is on a roll with new employment-related laws effective January 1, 2018. The latest relates to salary history disclosures by job applicants. There is essentially a complete prohibition on an employer, either orally or in writing, personally or through an agent, seeking salary history information, including compensation and benefits, about an applicant for employment.  This applies to all employers (private/public) and the only exception is publically available salary history information. Background screeners and employers take note and check out section 432.3 of California’s Labor Code.
