California’s 2013 New Employment Laws -

A new year always means new California employment laws. And 2013 is no different. In 2012, employers saw the new independent contractor misclassification law go into effec —California Labor Code Section 226.8 1 — which imposes a minimum $5,000 and maximum $25,000 fine for willful misclassification of an individual as an independent contractor. Also in 2012, California employers saw the new Wage Theft Protection Act — California Labor Code Section 2810.52 — which requires all employers to provide each nonexempt employee new hire with a written notice that contains specific wage and employer information, and to provide written notice of any changes to this information.
