CalChamber Capitol Report: New Liabilities on Business​​​​ (AB 1897)



(August 11, 2014) CalChamber Policy Advocate Jennifer Barerra urges members to ask senators to oppose a “job killer” bill that forces one employer to be liable for another’s employment obligations and creates significant costs for the General Fund.

The bill, AB 1897​, unfairly imposes liability on a contracting entity for the contractor’s wage and hour violations and lack of workers’ compensation coverage despite the lack of any evidence that the contracting entity controlled the working conditions or wages of the contractor’s employees.
