Penalties Against Employer for Paying Late Wages
Now that we're in 2020, California Assembly Bill 673 has become law. AB-673 updates existing labor code so employees can seek penalties for late wage payments. The penalty is $100 for the first violation. For further violations or anything deemed intentional, the penalty is $200 for each violation plus 25% of the wages owed. Late wages create difficulties for employees who need their paycheck when it's due. Hopefully, this law will encourage employees to pay their employees in a timely manner.
