AB 1897 (Hernandez; D-West Covina) Labor Contracting; Client Liability.  This bill would force one company to essentially insure the wage and hour obligations, workers’ compensation coverage, and occupational health and safety duties of a separate employer’s employees, which will discourage the use of contractors and their employees.

The CalChamber has identified both bills as “Job Killers,” and a large coalition of business groups are marshalling our forces in Sacramento to educate legislators about negative impacts of this measure.  This bill will be heard on June 24 in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

***ACTION NEEDED*** The bill will be heard on Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Please call any member with which you have a relationship with and/or have property in that district, and let them know how this bill will negatively impact your ability to provide jobs once you are targeted by advocates using this law as a leverage point in negotiations.
