This bill would establish a pilot program to investigate the pool and spa construction industry’s employment and payment practices. The pilot program would require the Employment Development Department, in consultation with the Franchise Tax Board, Department of Justice, Labor and Workforce Development Agency, and industry representatives, to develop and implement certain criteria that would trigger a recommendation for an audit or investigation to determine if an employer is in violation of any employee wages, hours, or working conditions statutes. After July 1, 2011, this bill would require the EDD to take action against employers who violate these statutes. This program would remain in effect until January 1, 2017.

Adds and repeals Labor Code Section 559.

To enrollment on 08/30/10.
