California Security Companies are Required to Pay Officers Weekly
California law requires that security company employers, in most cases pay their guard employees at a minimum of a weekly basis. There are exceptions, but most employers rarely meet all of the exemptions. I have yet to see more than a small handful of companies pay their employees as legally required.
Some positions even require daily pay at the end of each day.
We are not lawyers, nor labor law specialist… if you have any questions, we would suggest you seek advice from an attorney.
The kicker to this bill, violations are a misdemeanor crime. Odd that security employers are committing crimes by failing to pay their employees correctly….
|Assembly Bill No. 1311|
An act to amend Section 201.3 of the Labor Code, relating to employment, and declaring the urgency thereof, to take effect immediately.
LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST
Why are the armor trucks like brinks Garda and loomis pay biweekly that’s a security company. And there are still security companies still paying biweekly and the list goes on.
There is one exception. Armored currier services are regulated on the federal level and federal law supersedes state law. They can require 10 hour shifts without overtime, as federal law dictates scheduling and pay, etc.
I work at a casino for Capitol Security.
We are paid bi weekly
Is working at a casino an exemption?
Casinos in California have an exemption, as they are not fully under governmental control.
If you work for a contracted security company, they are required to provide weekly pay.
Are PPOs with all full-time employees and no temporary assignments required to pay weekly?
It’s my understanding that it applies to all security companies. The only exemption would be contracts that are superseded by federal law, such as armored car companies. There may be other legal exemptions, but they would be rare in this industry.
