Western Growers will present an AB 1513 “Safe Harbor” seminar conducted by industry lawyers on June 22 at the Taylor Farm headquarters in Salinas, Calif.

July 1, 2016, is the deadline for employers to elect the safe harbor option under AB 1513. Employers who timely make the election and back payments will have a legal defense to claims for back wages and other penalties associated with unpaid and underpaid piece-rate compensation. Read “Countdown to Piece-Rate Safe Harbor Election” for more information about the deadline.

The important and timely seminar will guide you in calculating the unpaid rest and recovery and “other non-productive time.” This will be significant in enabling your company to make an informed decision on the “safe harbor” option in accordance with AB 1513. The seminar is ideal for owners, accountants and bookkeepers so they understand how to make the calculations necessary for making back payments under the new law.
