Article 2. Seasonal Labor of California Labor Code >> Division 2. >> Part 1. >> Chapter 1. >> Article 2.

As used in this article "seasonal labor" means all labor performed by any person hired in this State to perform services outside of this State for a period greater than one month, where the wages are to be paid in this State, not at fixed intervals, but at the termination of such employment.
This article shall not apply to wages earned by seamen or other persons, where payment is regulated by Federal statute.
Upon application of either the employer or the employee, the wages earned in seasonal labor shall be paid in the presence of the Labor Commissioner, or his deputy or agent.
The Labor Commissioner shall hear and decide all wage disputes arising in connection with seasonal labor and shall allow or reject any deductions made from such wages. He shall reject all deductions made for gambling and liquor debts incurred by the employee during such employment.
After a final hearing by the Labor Commissioner, he shall file in the office of his division a copy of the findings of fact and his award.
The amount of the award of the Labor Commissioner shall, in the absence of fraud, be conclusively presumed to be the amount of the wages due and unpaid to the employee at the time of the termination of the employment but shall be subject to review by the courts in the manner provided by the Code of Civil Procedure.
The Labor Commissioner shall impose a civil penalty in an amount not exceeding 30 days pay as waiting time under the terms of Section 203.
All provisions of Article 1 of this chapter, except sections 204, 205, 207, 208, 209, 210, 211 and 215 are applicable to this article.
