CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2015–2016 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 588


Introduced by Assembly Member Grove

February 24, 2015


An act to amend Section 2699.5 of the Labor Code, relating to employment.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 588, as introduced, Grove. Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of 2004.
The Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 authorizes an aggrieved employee to bring a civil action to recover specified civil penalties, that would otherwise be assessed and collected by the Labor and Workforce Development Agency, on behalf of the employee and other current or former employees for the violation of certain provisions affecting employees. The act provides the employer with the right to cure certain violations before the employee may bring a civil action, as specified. For other violations, the act requires the employee to follow specified procedures before bringing an action.
Existing law requires an employer to provide its employees with specified information regarding their wages either semimonthly or at the time of each wage payment and provides that the employer does not have the right to cure a violation of that requirement before an employee may bring a civil action under the act.
This bill would provide an employer with the right to cure a violation of that wage statement law requirement before an employee may bring a civil action under the act. The bill would also delete obsolete provisions of law.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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