SB 1360, passed late in 2014, requires employers to pay employees for recovery periods taken during hot weather.

The law provides that a rest or recovery period, afforded to an employee by law to prevent heat illness, will be counted as hours worked for which there will be no deduction from wages.

Advice: This law grants premiums to employees deprived of mandated recovery periods. Employers of outdoor workers are urged to update their policies and procedures for preventing heat illness.
