This legislation amends section 1182.12 of the Labor Code by increasing the minimum wage to not less than $9 an hour beginning July 1, 2014, and to not less than $10 an hour beginning January 1, 2016.

This legislation adds Part 4.5 (commencing with section 1450) to Division 2 of the Labor Code, to be known and cited to as the Domestic Worker Bill of Rights, and repeals current section 1454 of the Labor Code. The legislation regulates the hours of work of domestic work employees who work as personal attendants by providing an overtime compensation standard for those employees.
