Employment News – 02/10/16

AB 1506 now provides employers with 30 days to cure select missing information, specifically (6) missing inclusive dates of the period for which the employee is paid and (8) the names and address of the legal entity that is the employer. Before filing a civil action the employee must give written notice of the violation by certified mail to the Labor and Workforce Development Agency and the employer, including facts and theories to support the alleged violation.  Employers should pay attention to any correspondence served by certified mail addressed to the Labor and Workforce Development Agency and the employer identifying Labor Code violations. The cure provisions require providing compliant wage statements to all employees for the past three years, which may sound onerous, but is certain to be less costly than the penalties and attorneys fees available if the violation is not cured.
