Governor Keeps Bob Jones at LWDA

Don't expect a worker-friendly environment at the California Labor Commissioner's office during the Arnold Schwarzenegger years. Shortly after the California Senate rejected his appointment as LWDA Deputy Secretary, Governor Schwarzenegger appointed him to a comparable position as deputy secretary general counsel for the LWDA. The position pays the same, and is nearly as influential, but does not require Senate confirmtion.

This is being received as good news by employers, but it is also good news, in a roundabout way, for all attorneys with a wage and hour practice. The Labor Commissioner's office will continue to be a place where employees cannot expect effective resolution of their wage and hour claims, leaving them with no good alternative to taking their claims to court.
