A pivotal California decision on the issue of "reporting time pay," has expanded the definition of "time worked" here in California. In Ward v. Tilly's, a divided California appellate court recently held that "reporting time pay" is owed to employees who have to call in two hours in advance to see if they are on the schedule (and then are told not to come into work).
The California Supreme Court recently held that payroll providers aren’t on the hook for paycheck errors and wage and hour violations. Instead, the employer alone is liable for wage and other pay violations
The California Labor Commissioner’s Office secured $1.7 million in assets from the owners of a Bay Area restaurant chain, Mango Garden, to pay 56 workers who were victims of “wage theft.”
