Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Warehouse Worker Protection Act. Provides that each employer shall provide to each employee, upon hire, or within 30 days after the effective date of the Act, whichever is later, a written description of each quota to which the employee is subject, including the quantified number of tasks to be performed or materials to be produced or handled, within a defined time period, and any potential adverse employment action that could result from failure to meet the quota. Provides that an employee shall not be required to meet a quota that prevents compliance with meal or rest periods or use of bathroom facilities, including reasonable travel time to and from bathroom facilities. Requires employers to post a notice of employees' rights under the Act and to comply with certain recordkeeping requirements. Establishes civil penalties for noncompliance with the Act. Provides for a private right of action. Sets forth provisions concerning definitions, employee's right to request records, enforcement, and severability. Effective 60 days after becoming law.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with changes that include the following. Removes a provision establishing a civil penalty for failing to disclose a quota. Provides that each employer shall establish, maintain, and preserve for 3 years contemporaneous, true, and accurate records to ensure compliance with employee and Director of Labor requests for data (instead of specified records). Adds provisions concerning injunctive relief. Makes changes to provisions concerning definitions, complaints, and the Attorney General's powers. Effective January 1, 2024.
