Yesterday, a preliminary injunction hearing was held by a Fresno County Superior Court on the “safe harbor” provisions of AB 1513, California’s piece-rate law. As previously reported in Spotlight, a temporary restraining order (TRO) was issued in the case of Nisei Farmers League v. California Labor and Workforce Development Agency, et al.
The court deferred its decision on the matter, effectively keeping the safe harbor election deadline fixed as July 28, 2016, unless a preliminary injunction is issued prior. Though no specific date for a decision was announced, the court is expected to grant or deny the injunction this week.
