In 2008, the legislature passed SB 940 (Yee - Temporary services employees: wages), which modifies Labor Code § 201.3, and changes payroll practices applicable to “temporary service workers.” With certain exceptions, temporary workers must be paid on a weekly basis. Wages for the current week’s work are due on the payday of the following calendar week. When the assignment is completed, the final wages for the assignment must be paid by the date of the regular payday in the week following the completion of the assignment, provided, however, that certain temporary employees assigned to work “day to day” must be paid at the end of each day. Failure to comply with these deadlines subjects the employer to waiting time penalties.
