Hiring New Employees in 2012 - New California Laws

Written By: Melissa C. Marsh, Esq., California Attorney, November 2011 Add to Favorites
Effective January 1, 2012, AB 469 known as the Wage Theft Protection Act of 2011 adds Labor Code §2810.5. Under the new law, California employers must provide each overtime eligible employee at the time of their hire with a written notice (in the language used to communicate in the workplace) that specifies all of the following:
  1. the rate or rates of pay and the basis thereof, whether paid by the hour, shift, day, week, salary, piece, commission or otherwise, including any rates for overtime, as applicable;
  2. allowances, if any, claimed as part of an employee’s minimum wage, including meal or lodging allowances;
  3. the regular payday designated by the employer as required by the Labor Code;
  4. the name of the employer, including any "doing business as" names used by the employer;
  5. the physical address of the employer’s main office, or principal place of business, and a mailing address, if different;
  6. the employer’s telephone number;
  7. the name, address and telephone number of the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier; and
  8. any other information the California Labor Commissioner deems material and necessary.
The California Labor Commissioner will make a template for the written notice available in Mid-December of 2011.

If the employer subsequently changes any of the information set forth in the written notice, the employer must notify its employees in writing within seven (7) calendar days, unless such changes are otherwise reflected on a timely wage statement in accordance with California Labor Code §226.
