AB 2416: “ORGANIZING TOOL OR SHAKEDOWN?”

Doug Kaplan, co-founder of Lomak Property Group, published the following op/ed in the SF Chronicle regarding AB 2416. Please thank him for the great writing and being a champion on behalf of our industry!

Imagine that you’re fortunate enough to have a gardener and that she has hired someone to help her take care of your yard. Now suppose that the helper has a dispute with the gardener over how much he was paid. Regardless of whether the helper is right or wrong, do you think that he should be able to file a lien against your home?

This is what will happen to commercial property owners throughout California if the Wage Theft Recovery Act, a bill working its way through the Legislature, becomes law.
