CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 410


Introduced by Senator Leyva

February 12, 2021


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


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 410, as introduced, Leyva. Department of Industrial Relations.
Existing law establishes the Department of Industrial Relations for specified purposes and provides for its administration by the Director of Industrial Relations. Under existing law, when term “head of the department” is used in certain provisions of law, it means the Director of Industrial Relations, unless the Labor Code expressly provides that another entity retains jurisdiction over a specific matter.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that provision.
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:
