Help Pass AB 403 to provide protections against worker retaliation!

Wed, March 20, 2019 12:42 PM | LezLi Logan (Administrator)

We are grateful to Ruth Silver-Taube for telling us about this important issue in our community. 

AB 403 is an important bill that would extend the statute of limitations for retaliation claims. We need your help to get this bill passed!

In the current political climate, immigrant workers are often afraid to come forward with workplace retaliation claims, especially given, or due to lack awareness of, the short six-month statute of limitations. Workers are further misled because the deadline to file a wage theft claim through the Labor Commissioner is three years; workers often assume that it is the same for a retaliation claim. This legislation would eliminate the confusion and provide employees with a three-year period of time to file a retaliation claim. This would also allow workers additional time to find representation, file paperwork, and gathering evidence.  Please see attached Fact Sheet (link below) for more detailed info.

Please take a few minutes to write a letter of support. Attached (see link below) is a sample letter you can use as a template. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions at

Thank you!
