Wage Theft Investigations and Citations in the Construction Industry

Evelin Y. Bailey - California Construction Law Blog

This month we share some cautionary tales for employers in the construction industry. During the past several months the California Labor Commissioner has cited or filed suit against several construction companies. In one investigation, a general contractor was held equally responsible for wages owed by a subcontractor to its employees.
