The California Legislature enacted the Wage Theft Protection Act of 2011,
which went into effect January 1, 2012. The Act requires that all employers provide employees, upon hire, a notice of employment related information. The notice includes for example the legal name of the employer, their address and phone number. The information includes the rates of pay, and whether the rate is by the hour, the shift, the day, week or by salary piece rate, commission or otherwise.
While the Wage Theft Protection Act of 2011 will not stop employers for stealing wage,
it will assist employees in knowing what they are suppose to be paid. If you believe you’ve been the victim of wage theft, you should contact our office immediately for an evaluation.
