CLIENT ALERT: PAGA Amended to Allow Cure for Labor Code Section 226(a) Violation

By lfsuser on October 03, 2015

Effective immediately, Governor Brown signed AB 1506 on October 2, 2015 to amend California’s Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”) to give employers a right to cure certain wage statement violations before an employee may bring a civil action under PAGA. Under the amended rule, an employer may cure a violation of Labor Code section 226(a), which obligates an employer to provide employees with the inclusive dates of the pay period and the name and address of the legal entity that is the employer. However, an employer may take advantage of this provision only once for the same violation of the statute during each 12-month period.
