CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 543


Introduced by Assembly Member Chen

February 13, 2017


An act to amend Section 1182.8 of the Labor Code, relating to employment.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 543, as introduced, Chen. Employment: resident apartment manager wages.
Existing law provides that an employer is not in violation of specified orders of the Industrial Welfare Commission if he or she charges, pursuant to a voluntary written agreement, a resident apartment manager up to 2/3 of the fair market rental value of the apartment supplied to the manager, if the rental value is not applied to satisfy the employer’s minimum wage obligation to the manager.
This bill would extend the exemption from those orders of the Industrial Welfare Commission to an employer who does not charge the resident apartment manager any rent and, pursuant to a voluntary written agreement, applies up to 2/3 of the fair market rental value of the apartment to meet his or her minimum wage obligations to the manager.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 1182.8 of the Labor Code is amended to read:

1182.8.
 (a) No employer shall be in violation of any provision of any an applicable order of the Industrial Welfare Commission relating to credit or charges for lodging for charging, pursuant to a voluntary written agreement, a resident apartment manager up to two-thirds of the fair market rental value of the apartment supplied to the manager, if no credit for the apartment is used not applied to meet the employer’s minimum wage obligation to the manager.
(b) If an employer does not charge a resident apartment manager to occupy the apartment supplied to him or her, the employer, pursuant to a voluntary written agreement, may apply up to two-thirds of the fair market rental value of the apartment to meet the employer’s minimum wage obligation to the manager without violating any provision of an applicable order of the Industrial Welfare Commission relating to credit or charges for lodging.
