Speaking of California, the latest proposal from the Golden State, looks to redefine what constitutes a “workweek”. AB 2932, filed by Los Angeles County Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, would change the definition of a workweek from the current 40 hours to 32 hours for companies with more than 500 employees. In addition, it would require overtime pay for employees made to work longer than four full days per week and covered employers would be prohibited from cutting employee pay to compensate for a missing workday during the (shortened) workweek! Incredibly, Garcia, the sponsor of the bill who is currently running for Congress, said the goal was not to “shove the same amount of work into less time.” But in part to formalize some of the changes brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. The legislation, pending in the Assembly Committee on Labor and Employment is strongly opposed by California business interests.
