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.
