16 The amended Labour Code Section 2751 stipulates that all California employees paid commissions have effective Commission plans as of January 1, 2013. The information contained in this publication is only for informational purposes and does not provide legal advice or advice and does not replace the professional assessment of a lawyer. The Wage Theft Prevention Act 2011 (“WTPA” or “Act”)1 will come into effect on the first day of next year, January 1, 2012. The WTPA is one of half a dozen new laws that influence an employer`s wage payment obligations. WTPA amended five existing statutes within the California Labor Code and created five new statutes in the same code2. The revisions to the Commissioner of Labour`s WTPA FAQ focus on issues related to changes to the submission form. An important point of interest for employers is that the revised FAQ continues to take a position, as noted in our January 9, 2012 alert, that employers are not required to send an initial WTPA notification to all California workers currently unal audiotaped after the new law comes into effect. (Advertising should only be made available to current staff if the relevant information has been changed in accordance with the conditions set by the statute). While the revised FAQ states that making the provision of a first notification to all current non-exempt California employees is a “best practice” (see review implemented on January 23, 2012), this is only a recommendation and not a requirement.

The FAQs add that if, at the time of hiring, the staff agency or the leasing company knows the name of the client activity for which the employee is placed and working, this information must be indicated on the notice under “another agency for which he will perform work”. In the event of a subsequent transfer of the employee to another location, the staff agency must provide a new notification or change on a broken-down wage statement (lohnstub) or other legal communication. 3 Cal. Lab. Code 2810.5 (c) (1)–3). In 2012, the public minimum wage will be $8 per hour; 30% more than the minimum wage will be $10.40 per hour. Keep in mind that the reference to the “state” minimum wage is that some countries have higher minimum wages (for example. B the minimum wage in San Francisco is $10.24 per hour as of January 1, 2012). Also keep in mind that the requirement that a worker under a collective agreement receive 30% more than the state minimum wage is not stipulated in the standard form of the Labour Commissioner.
