The Senate Republican Caucus analysis of Assembly Bill 3363 as last amended described this measure as follows:
Requires the Labor Commissioner to notify the registrar of the Contractors State License Board when a licensed Contractor has been engaged in a willful or deliberate violation of the Labor Code, within the jurisdiction of the commissioner, and would require the registrar to initiate formal disciplinary action against the licensor within 30 days of notification. Also requires employer’s addresses to be included in the information at the time of payment of wages.(See Exhibit #4)
