We just received word that Assemblywoman Skinner’s SB 769, which eliminated the Net Operating Loss Carryback provision in California’s tax law. has been pulled by the author. It is an urgency bill so could come back this year but it would have to pass by a two thirds vote.
Small Business California put together a coalition of 27 associations opposing this measure. Thank you to all that signed..
Last Friday I sent an email asking your position on SB 761. This bill would have required small business under 50 employees to provide 6 weeks Paid Family Leave. The threshold for employees would be $300 per the base period. Failure to do so could bring about a lawsuit or complaint to the Labor Commissioner.
Lori and I related the results to the Senators office and said that the tax on employees who are not eligible for the same benefits as employees of businesses over 50 should not have to pay the tax.
The Senator has until May 31 to get this passed in the Senate.
Thank you to all that responded.
I have mentioned in previous emails the requirement for all businesses with employees to have an Injury and Illness Prevention Plan. If you do not have one in writing please see materials to help you do so. Small Business California is part of the Advisory Group that developed these material.
To the IIPP for Small Business Advisory Group,
The IIPP for small business materials have been posted on the Commission’s website and can be accessed at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/chswc/WOSHTEP/iipp/
