Assembly Bill
No. 1047

Introduced by Assembly Member Fong

February 21, 2019

An act to add Section 2061.5 to the Labor Code, relating to employment.


AB 1047, as introduced, Fong. Car washes: registration requirements.
Existing law regulates the industry of car washing and polishing by providing specific recordkeeping requirements that employers of car washers must implement with regard to car washer wages, hours, and working conditions. Existing law requires employers of car washers to register with the Labor Commissioner and pay a specified registration fee. Existing law requires that the employer provide specified information and documentation before the registration can be approved.
This bill would prohibit the Labor Commissioner from requiring that the employer fill out and submit a specified tax form to the Internal Revenue Service, as part of the registration process under these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


 Section 2061.5 is added to the Labor Code, to read:

 Notwithstanding any law, inclusive, but not limited to, Section 2061, the commissioner shall not require, as a condition of registration of any employer, that the employer complete or submit to the Internal Revenue Service, the form entitled “Tax Information Authorization” (Form 8821 (4/04) Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service).
