As Amends the Law Today


SECTION 1.

 Section 352 is added to the Labor Code, to read:

352.
 (a) As used in this section, “entity” means an organization that uses an online-enabled application or platform to connect workers with customers to engage the workers to provide labor services, including, but not limited to, a transportation network company as defined in Section 5431 of the Public Utilities Code.
(b) An entity that permits a patron to pay for services performed by a worker by debit or credit card shall also accept a debit or credit card for payment of gratuity. Payment of a gratuity made by a patron using a debit or credit card shall be made to a worker not later than the next regular payday following the date the patron authorized the debit or credit card payment.
SEC. 2.
 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
