Labor Commissioner Publishes Optional Notice for Employer Use to Comply With Wage Theft Protection Act
Effective January 1, 2012, California employers will have to comply with newly enacted Labor Code section 2810.5(a). This new law, known as the Wage Theft Protection Act of 2011, requires employers to provide employees with written information at the time of hire concerning wages and related information. California's Labor Commissioner was tasked with creating a template employers may use to provide the required information. The Labor Commissioner has just published the optional template, which is available here. For more information on the requirements of the new law, click here and here.
