Results of EEEC enforcement in garment industry announced

Aug '07
Investigators with the Economic and Employment Enforcement Coalition (EEEC) recently targeted businesses in the garment industry that were operating illegally. The businesses visited were in Los Angeles and Riverside Counties.

EEEC is a multi-agency task force designed to root out California's underground economy. In a recent enforcement sweep of garment manufacturers, the EEEC targeted businesses that avoid labor, tax and licensing laws, safety and health regulations and carry no workers' compensation insurance for their employees.

“In California, workers have workplace protections and it is our job to make sure labor laws are not violated,” said EEEC Executive Director David Dorame. “At the same time, we owe it to responsible employers to vigorously enforce against those who do not comply with California labor laws, thereby, gaining an unfair economic advantage by not following the rules.”

The results of the sweep are as follows:
• Number of inspections: 32
• Number of citations issued: 49
• Total citation amount: $232,900
• Citations issued for: no workers' compensation, not taking required payroll deductions, underpayment of overtime and minimum wage, not having a proper work permit for a minor and not having the proper garment registrations.

Launched in July'05 with the full support of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the EEEC was formed with a dual mission: To enforce California labor laws; and to educate business owners and workers on those laws and regulations.
