Following Usher v. White (2021) 64 Cal.App.5th 883, this decision holds that, under Lab. Code 558.1, an owner, officer, director, or managing agent of the employer may be held liable for the employer’s violation of an IWC wage order or of certain wage and hour sections of the Labor Code if the individual defendant had some oversight of the employer’s operations or some influence on corporate policy that resulted in Labor Code violations.  It isn’t necessary to show that the defendant was involved in the day-to-day operations of the employer, authored the challenged employment policies or specifically approved their implementation.  Here, the trial court properly entered judgment against the individual who was sole owner and president of both employer companies, and who had approved the policy regarding payment of employees that violated various provisions of the Labor Code.
