  • UNFAIR LIEN AND LABOR BILLS

    Posted: July 11, 2014 | Posted by Crystal Whitfield | No Comments

    Two labor-backed bills that could place pull your business into labor disputes that you have nothing to do with, Will be considered when the Legislature comes back in August.  We oppose both bills and are strongly urging all of our members to get engaged locally on these measures.  Make sure your members know about them and reach out to local legislative offices to explain how they would impact your operations.

    AB 2416 (Stone; D-Scotts Valley) Unproven Wage Liens.  This bill creates a dangerous and unfair precedent in the wage and hour arena by allowing employees to file liens on an employer’s real or personal property, or property where work was performed, based upon alleged yet unproven wage claims.

    AB 1897 (Hernandez; D-West Covina) Labor Contracting; Client Liability.  This bill would force one company to essentially insure the wage and hour obligations, workers’ compensation coverage, and occupational health and safety duties of a separate employer’s employees, which will discourage the use of contractors and their employees.

    The CalChamber has identified both bills as “Job Killers,” and a large coalition of business groups are marshalling forces in Sacramento to educate legislators about negative impacts of these bills.  But we need your help locally.
