SB 229 expands the Labor Commissioner’s mechanisms for enforcing an employer’s violation of the Labor Code’s anti-retaliation provisions.  If the Labor Commissioner investigates a retaliation complaint and determines that a violation took place under the Labor Code, the Labor Commissioner may issue a citation to the person or employer responsible for the violation.  SB 229 establishes procedural requirements and deadlines for the Labor Commissioner to file citations with the court for judicial enforcement and the collection of remedies.  The bill also provides procedural requirements for any person or employer who wishes to contest such citation.

(SB 229 amends Section 98.74 of the Labor Code.)
