The California Chamber of Commerce is supporting legislation to prevent employers from being punished for relying on written compliance advice from the state Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE).
The bill, AB 2688 (Brown; D-San Bernardino), has been designated as a job creator. It prevents an employer from being financially penalized through the assessment of statutory civil and criminal penalties, fines, and interest if the employer relies in good faith on written advice from the DLSE, and a court ultimately determines the DLSE’s advice was wrong.
Fullerton Chamber is urging members to express support for AB 2688. An easy-to-edit sample letter is available at www.calchambervotes.com
