California Cites Staffing Firm For Violations

California Labor Commissioner Julie A. Su issued additional citations totaling over $600,000 to Premier Warehousing Ventures, LLC for violations discovered during an Oct. 12, 2011 inspection of Schneider Logistics.

The citation was issued for Premier Warehousing’s failure to provide employees proper wage statements. California Labor Code 226 requires that employers furnish an accurate itemized statement with employees’ paychecks that includes detail on the total hours worked, hourly pay, piece rates if piece rate pay is utilized, deductions and other wage information.

The Labor Commissioner also cited Premier Warehousing for failure to keep payroll records in California, a requirement under state law.

“We hope this citation sends a message to all employers in California that when the failure to keep and provide records as required by law is part of a concerted effort to deny workers their hard-earned wages, we will not tolerate it,” Su said.
