On September 27, 2021, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez’s Assembly Bill 1003 into law.  This new legislation establishes that intentional theft of wages or tips by employers is punishable as grand theft.  The law takes effect on January 1, 2022.

According to the bill’s author, Assemblywoman Gonzalez (D-San Diego), AB 1003 will serve as a deterrent.  “For too long, corporations have gotten away with stealing from their employees and faced nothing more than a slap on the wrist,” she said. “The system isn’t working if we can’t deter the most egregious actors from taking advantage of their own workers. This law sends a clear message: if you intentionally steal workers’ hard-earned wages, you can actually go to prison.” Existing law makes a violation of specified wage and gratuity provisions a misdemeanor, and provides for civil penalties and remedies for the recovery of wages.
