Timely Law

From the Sacramento Bee: The University of California must pay its employees on time under a new law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom. The law comes more than a year after UC employees, including many students, began reporting skipped or late paychecks as a result of errors attributable to the implementation of the new human resources system UCPath, which has cost the university system around $500 million to implement. In February, the UC system paid out more than $162,000 in “make whole” payments to student employees who received missed, delayed or smaller-than-expected payments due to UC Path.

Under the new law, employees of the regents of the University of California must be paid on a regular payday, while employees paid monthly must receive their pay no later than five days after the close of the monthly payroll period. Previously, UC was exempt from the state law requiring employers in the private sector to pay their employees on a timely basis...

Will the new law work? We'll have to wait (if that's allowed) and see:
