California Workers’ Compensation Update

As of 1/1/15, California employers will be responsible for workers’ compensation coverage and wage violations committed by contracted temporary-labor supplies. Employers with fewer than 25 employees, those with fewer than 6 temporary workers, trucking companies and cable and communications employers are exempt from the law. The law is the strictest in the U.S. for protecting temporary workers.
