BOMA California members and staff have defeated a measure that may have harmed your ability to manage your property, AB 1164. This was a bill that would have allowed an employee to file a wage lien on any 'property upon which the employee bestowed labor for the benefit of the property owner and with the owner's consent and knowledge that such labor was being provided.'
This directly allows an employee who performs work in an off-site location to file a wage lien against a third party. Under this bill, a cable installer could file a wage lien against any building in which he installed cable.
Thank you to our advocates in Sacramento for defending the California commercial real estate industry.
