Amends law to establish administrative penalty of $5,000 for Employee Misclassification.
Existing law authorizes the Labor Commissioner to impose certain administrative penalties against an employer who misclassifies a person as an independent contractor or otherwise fails to properly classify an employee
35 including: (1) for a first offense committed by an employer who unintentionally misclassifies or otherwise fails to properly classify a person as an employee, a warning; (2) for a first offense committed by an employer who willfully fails to properly classify a person as an employee, a fine of $2,500 for the first incident of willfully misclassifying one or more persons; and (3) for a second or subsequent offense, a fine of $5,000 for each employee who was willfully misclassified.
