Labor Code 101 for Public Agencies

CATEGORY: Employment Law, Public Agency

The California Labor Code is far from clear as to which of its provisions apply to local government agencies, such as cities, counties, special districts, community colleges and school districts. The problem becomes more difficult as the Legislature adds new laws that fail to specify whether they apply only to private employers, public employers, or both. For example, while local agencies are not required to comply with most state wage and hour laws, the state minimum wage now applies to all local agencies. This workbook covers the Labor Code sections frequently cited by employees, or employee associations and unions to stress the concepts which public agencies deal with on a regular basis.
