California Labor Code Section 2810.3 took effect January 1, 2015 and makes certain businesses jointly liable with labor ready outsourcers of labor for wage and workers compensation violations. If your company is outsourcing its labor needs through an employment agency or labor ready company the new law makes your company fully liable for any failure by the outsourced company to pay wages or secure workers’ compensation insurance. This law makes some of the benefit of outsourcing construction labor disappear.
