Compliance with California Labor Code Section 2810.5 Notice Obligations

The California Wage Theft Prevention Act of 2011 (''WTPA'') became effective on January 1, 2012. Among other provisions, the WTPA adds section 2810.5 to the California Labor Code. That section obligates California employers to provide a notice to new non-exempt employees at the time of hiring and to existing non-exempt employees under specified circumstances. The California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (''DLSE'') has belatedly issued both a template notice and FAQs that raise many compliance questions. We have prepared a letter containing our compliance advice that we will send to our clients who are interested in receiving a copy. Please feel free to contact your existing Paul Hastings lawyer or any of the partners listed below. Thank you.
