AB 243 (Assembly Member Luis Alejo)...

AB 243 requires a farm labor contractor (FLC) to disclose the name and address of the entity or entities that secured that contractor’s services on the pay stub of the FLC’s employees. Vineyard management companies licensed as FLC’s will have to comply with the new requirement. The bill is similar to bills vetoed in years past. The plain purpose of the legislation is to strengthen the nexus of liability between the illegal acts of a farm labor contractor and the farmer who contracted with that FLC. Despite broad agricultural opposition, the bill was signed by the Governor’s office.
