AB 1775 – Contract Requirements When Contracting For Live Events
Assembly Bill 1775 requires entities entering into contracts with entertainment vendors for events held at certain public venues to require the entertainment vendor to make certain certifications in writing as part of the contract. A “public events venue” is defined as a state-operated fairground, county fairground, state park, California State University, University of California, or auxiliary organization-run facility that hosts live events. The vendor must certify that all employees and employees of its subcontractors involved in the setting up, operation, or tearing down, have complied with specified training, certification, and workforce requirements, and have completed prescribed training of the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Failure to obtain these certifications will subject the entity to a citation and a civil penalty from the Division of Occupational Safety and Health.
(AB 1775 amends add Part 14 (commencing with Section 9250) to Division 5 of the Labor Code.)
