Court of Appeal holds that monetary value of accrued vacation need not appear on wage statements until payment is due

In Soto v. Motel 6 Operating, L.P. (Oct. 20, 2016), the Court of Appeal (Fourth Appellate District, Division One) held in a PAGA action that Labor Code § 226(a) "does not require employers to include the monetary value of accrued paid vacation time in employee wage statements unless and until a payment is due at the termination of the employment relationship." Slip op., at 2.  The Court easily concluded that the disclosure of such information on wage statements on a regular basis was not required by the current law.  Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
