NEW LAW REQUIRES WAREHOUSE EMPLOYERS TO PROVIDE NOTICE OF QUOTAS

California bill AB 701 relates to Warehouse Distribution Employees (e.g., Amazon workers). The law, which goes into effect on January 1, 2022, requires employers with large warehouse distribution centers (employers with 100 or more employees at a single warehouse distribution center or 1000 or more employees at one or more warehouse distribution centers in California) to provide employees with “a written description of each quota to which the employee is subject to, including the quantified number of tasks to be performed or materials to be produced or handled, within a defined period of time, and any potential adverse employment action that may result from failure to meet the quota.” The bill prohibits an employer from taking adverse action against an employee for failure to meet a quota that has not been disclosed or for failure to meet a quota that does not allow a worker to receive compliant meal periods, rest periods, or protection under occupational health and safety laws.
