Protecting Workers in the New Subcontracted Society

We are half way through 2015. Are you following the employment laws that went into effect January 1, 2015?

 Protecting Workers in the New Subcontracted Society
AB 1897 requires a client employer to share all civil legal responsibility and civil liability for the payment of wages and the failure to obtain valid workers’ compensation coverage for all workers supplied by certain labor contractors.  It amends existing law which prohibits a person or entity from entering into a contract for labor or services with a construction, farm labor, garment, janitorial, security guard, or warehouse contractor if the person or entity knows or should know that the contract or agreement does not include sufficient funds for the contractor to comply with laws or regulations governing the labor or services provided.
