Los Angeles Lawyer Magazine Publishes Article by Steven G. Pearl

The November, 2010, edition of Los Angeles Lawyer magazine includes an article by Steven G. Pearl entitled "The Limits on Employer Deductions from Pay in California."

The article explores section 8 of the Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Orders, which allows employers to deduct from employees' wages for shortage, breakage, or loss "caused by a dishonest or willful act, or by the gross negligence of the employee." Mr. Pearl considers whether this provision is invalid as conflicting with the Labor Code and whether Due Process protects employees from employers' extrajudicial deductions from wages.

Los Angeles Lawyer magazine is published by the Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA) and is available here. Mr. Pearl co-chair's LACBA's Labor and Employment Law Section Dinner Committee and serves on the Planning Committee for LACBA's Annual Labor and Employment Law Symposium.
