The California Department of Industrial Relations updated its FAQ webpage on piece-rate compensation (AB 1513) to include much-needed information on the pay-outs for wages due to piece-rate employees. Employers impacted by these retro-payments should now be processing those payments to workers.
Info on retro payments can be found in the FAQs by going to the section on Calculating and Making Back Payments to Employees and Former Employees for Purposes of the Affirmative Defense.
Western Growers held a series of Town Hall meetings in September and October in the Central Coast, the Central Valley and in the Imperial Valley. The town Halls were designed to provide important insights from legal experts and fellow employers to help members reduce their liability risk and overcome the technical compliance challenges of AB 1513’s safe harbor provisions. WG members can access a recording from one of those events on our website (WG members must be logged in to the website to access the video).
