AB 1744 has been signed into law. Current law under Labor Code § 226 requires every employer, semimonthly or at the time of each payment of wages, to furnish each employee with an accurate itemized statement in writing showing certain information including hours worked, pay rates, deductions and similar information. Current law provides that a knowing and intentional violation of this provision is a misdemeanor. AB 1744 adds a requirement for temporary services employers to include the rate of pay and the total hours worked for each assignment, with certain specified exceptions. Temporary services employers must also include the physical address of the main office, the mailing address if different from the physical address of the main office, and the telephone number of the legal entity for whom the employee will perform work.
The law becomes effective July 1, 2013. It will incorporate changes to Labor Code § 226 under SB 1255 and AB 2674, and shall be chaptered last among those three bills.
