When a company does "repeated and successive transactions" it is considered to be conducting business in the State and must registered as a foreign business. see Section 100-195 www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=corp&group=00001-01000&file=100-195.
However, merely having an employee in the State is unlikely to be considered repeated and successive transactions". The California courts have recently ruled that renting a space and having an employee in the State is not enough. See ARZAB v. KM ENTERPRISES, INC., Dist. Court, ND California 2012 source: www.scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=8406367728089251658&q=+Jarzab+v.+KM+Enters&hl=en&as_sdt=2,5
