Check your pay stubs for compliance with California Labor Code Section 226.
The latest trend in lawsuits against employers revolves around violations of CA Labor Code section 226 (the pay stub statute). Under previous law, if an employee, or class of employees, wanted to pursue a claim for violation of section 226, they had to prove they suffered an actual injury as a result of an incomplete pay stub. Recently, section 226 was amended to effectively eliminate any requirement that an employee prove injury. Injury is now presumed if the itemized wage statement fails to provide the required information.Details
