California Assembly Bill to End Ag Overtime Exemption (AB 2757) Died on the Assembly Floor

AB 2757 (Gonzalez), which sought to repeal longstanding law allowing California Agriculture to pay overtime after 10 hours of work in a day failed to pass an Assembly floor vote on June 2, 2016.

Notification Deadline for AB 1513 Piece Rate Safe Harbor is July 1, 2016

Effective January 1, 2016, AB 1513 set minimum standards for piece-rate workers' compensation during rest breaks and recovery time, as well as any other non-productive time required by the employer that is not income generating, such as meetings, trainings, set up time, etc. Within this bill, the California Legislature created a safe harbor for employers that did not compensate piece-rate employees following the Bluford and Gonzales decisions of 2013.
