California's "Sue Your Boss" law allows employees and former employees to sue for any violation of the California Labor Code, and to pocket civil penalties and collect attorney's fees. Businesses are already being sued under the law, and labor attorneys are looking to find new ways to sue. SB 796 created new California Labor Code sections 2698 and 2699. The law was signed by Governor Davis after he was voted out of office, and the law became effective January 1, 2004. We are offering what we believe to be the most extensive resource devoted to the new law.
Here is what others have to say about the Bounty Hunter Law-
In this corner ...
"Expands the grounds by which employers can be sued by private attorneys, increasing the risks of hiring employees, increasing insurance costs, increasing attorney fees, increasing costs of settlements, raising costs to consumers, making the employer less competitive, killing jobs."
[California Chamber of Commerce]
and in the other corner ...
"The growing state budget virtually guarantees that no new enforcement staff will be hired. There must be a way to enforce labor laws without further relying on state resources. Recognizing that the State cannot be everywhere, this bill would help crack down on the underground economy and other scofflaw employers, and enhance needed revenue to our State by prescribing civil penalties for violations of the labor code which would be able to be assessed and collected by aggrieved workers acting as private attorneys general."
[California Labor Federation]

Examples of Potential Wrongdoing [lawsuit generators]
- A national company with thousands of employees throughout California and the country, is headquartered in New York where it keeps payroll records for safekeeping. Sue Your Boss explains why the California Labor Code has probably been violated.
- To save money and prevent paychecks from being lost or stolen, a company implements a mandatory direct deposit policy. Although well intended, there has likely been a violation of the Labor Code.
- The business has 15 employees, all women, and one bathroom with a stall. Another employee is hired (it doesn't matter whether they are a man or a woman). There has probably been a violation of the Labor Code. What do bathroom stalls have to do with the Labor Code? Find out why in Sue Your Boss.
- The employee handbook includes a term that turns out to be illegal. Even if the term has nothing to do with the Labor Code, there is probably a violation of the Labor Code. Find out why in Sue Your Boss. The potential civil penalties are per employee, per pay period that the illegal term has existed. What are the potential penalties for your business?
How Does the Law Work?
Let us assume a business omits required information on its pay stubs and the business has 50 employees. The business could be subject to a $100 penalty for each of its employees in the first pay period this occurs, or $5000 in penalties. What if the error is not caught for almost the entire year - fifty pay periods? Now, the business is potentially liable for an additional $500,000 in penalties, plus paying the attorney's fees for the employees, not to mention paying its own attorneys. Are the penalties covered by insurance? Probably not. Ouch!
Now, are you ready to read this ebook?
Are you 100% confident there are no obscure laws you never heard of that you are not violating? Before reading this web page, did you even know there were laws about having toilet paper?
The new amended law divides claims into multiple categories, each with stringent rules and deadlines. There are now 3, 17, 30, 33, and 120 deadlines. (Leave it to the California legislature to create 17 and 33 day deadlines. Have you ever given a customer 17 days to respond to something?) Missing a deadline by one day can have huge results. The amendment goes on for pages and pages and pages and is almost undecipherable. We turn this incredibly complex law into a simple step-by-step outline that you can easily use.
It could cost thousands of dollars to hire an attorney to prepare a review of possible labor code violations a business may face. It will cost much, much more if a notice or lawsuit is filed. Fortunately, since valuable information can be provided more affordably via the Internet than other distribution channels, the purchase price is only $10.
