Why Choose 'California Labor Judgment Enforcement'
to Enforce and Collect your Labor Commissioner Judgment
rather than the State Labor Commissioner?
When an Order, Decision, or Award (ODA) is in the worker’s favor and there is no appeal, the Labor Commissioner asks the court to enter an Order, Decision, or Award (ODA) as a judgment against the employer. Workers who do not try to collect the judgment themselves 'may' assign the judgment to the Labor Commissioner (or anyone else) to attempt collection.
Between 2008 and 2011, the State Labor Commissioner Collection Unit collected only 12 percent of the amount awarded, likely due in large part to lack of effective wage collection tools and employer insolvency. For some period of time, Labor Commissioner had a working agreement with the California Franchise Tax Board to collect wage judgments through intercepting tax refunds from employers with outstanding judgments. That works only if your former Employer actually files taxes AND is entitled to a tax refund.
This program was at best marginally successful. For example, in FY 2010-2011, FTB collected $1.7M on wage claims referred by Labor Commissioner. This represented recovery on less than 20% of the cases referred and only 2% percent of the total amount of money awarded in ODAs issued in that year.
A study of 441 decisions and judgments filed by the Labor Commissioner against Los Angeles area restaurants between 2013 and 2016 and found $6.7 million was awarded in unpaid wages, penalties, and interest, but... ONLY $412,000 has been collected by the Labor Commissioner!
