CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1643


Introduced by Assembly Member Robert Rivas

January 12, 2022


An act to amend Section 53 of the Labor Code, relating to employment.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1643, as introduced, Robert Rivas. Department of Industrial Relations.
Existing law establishes in the Labor and Workforce Development Agency the Department of Industrial Relations for specified purposes and provides for its administration by the Director of Industrial Relations. Existing law defines the designation “head of the department” to mean the Director of Industrial Relations, unless the Labor Code expressly provides that another entity has jurisdiction over a specific matter.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that definition.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 53 of the Labor Code is amended to read:

53.
 Whenever in Section 1001 1001, or in Part 1 (commencing with Section 11000) of Division 3 of Title 2 2, of the Government Code “head of the department” or similar designation occurs, the same shall, designation, for the purposes of this code, shall mean the director, except that except, in respect to matters which by the express provisions of this code are committed to or retained under the jurisdiction of the Division of Workers’ Compensation, the State Compensation Insurance Fund, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board, the Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board, or the Industrial Welfare Commission Commission, the designation shall mean the Division of Workers’ Compensation, the Administrative Director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation, the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, the State Compensation Insurance Fund, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board, the Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board, or the Industrial Welfare Commission, as the case may be.
