Attention: Piece-Rate Workers:

If you worked in California between 2012 and 2015 and your pay was based on a fixed rate for each piece of work completed, your employer may have recently sent you a one-time payment for unpaid rest and recovery periods due to Assembly Bill (AB) 1513. You do not need to report this one-time payment to the EDD. Remember, you must report all other wages and income that you receive.

If you have already reported this one-time payment, Contact UI to ensure your benefits were paid correctly.

For more information about AB 1513, you may review the AB 1513 Fact Sheet and Frequently Asked Questions on the Department of Industrial Relations website.
