LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1082, as amended, Williams. Employee records. Employment records: report.
Existing law requires every person employing labor to provide the Industrial Welfare Commission with any report or information the commission requires to carry out its duties, including, but not limited to, records showing the names and addresses of all employees employed and the ages of all minors.
This bill would require an employer who employs 50 or more full-time equivalent employees to annually report to the Employment Development Department specified information relating to the average number of hours each employee worked per week in a calendar year and whether those employees were enrolled in minimum essential coverage, as defined, under an eligible employer-sponsored health care plan.

The Labor Code requires employers to maintain specified records of their employees, including, but not limited to, the names and addresses of all employees employed and the ages of all minors.

This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to require employers to keep records of the number of hours each employee worked per week and whether the employer provided each employee with health insurance for the period of employment.
