The California Labor and Workforce Development Agency has issued numerous citations and fines totaling more than $500,000 for labor and safety violations at nine Alameda County companies.

The fines came as the result of a sweep of Oakland and Hayward pallet manufacturers conducted by the Economic Employment Enforcement Coalition (EEEC) in February. Infractions included record-keeping violations (including paying in cash and failing to provide accurate pay stubs), failure to have workers’ compensation and overtime pay violations.

The safety violations included disabled safety latches on saws and other power tools, failure to supply employees with safety equipment (such as safety glasses and earplugs) and lack of safety training.

The EEEC, which has issued more than 9,000 citations since its inception in July 2005, comprises agents from the U.S. Labor Department, California Department of Industrial Relations’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health and its Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, Contractors State License Board and California Employment Development Department.
