California Companies Can Be Fined for Hiring the Wrong Janitorial Service

03 Aug 2018 9:44 AM | IJCSA (Administrator)

Beyond price and service, should companies care about the janitorial service they hire? With provisions of the California Property Service Workers Protection Act taking effect on July 1, 2018, and the Labor Commissioner recently fining Cheesecake Factory and its janitorial service $4.5 million for wage theft, it’s time to revisit how janitorial services are hired.

A provision of the Property Service Workers Protection Act that took effect on July 1, 2018, requires companies providing janitorial services to annually register with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. Registration requires that the janitorial service meet certain conditions. Janitorial services that fail to register are subject to stiff civil fines. But it gets worse.

Under California Labor Code section 1432(b), any person or entity that contracts with a janitorial employer lacking a current and valid registration can be fined between $2,000 and $10,000 for the first violation, and between $10,000 and $25,000 for a subsequent violation.
