California: Major Victory for Parents

---------------------------------------------------------------------
JOINT LEGISLATIVE VICTORY E-LERT - October 15, 2012
From: Mike Smith - HSLDA and Roy Hanson -- Family Protection
Ministries
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Bill: AB 889 - Domestic Work Employees (e.g., Babysitters)
Author: State Assembly Member Tom Ammiano

Position: Strongly Opposed

Status: Vetoed by the Governor!

A Great Victory for all Parents and Smaller Government!

AB 889 as introduced would have, among other things, classified
parents who hire babysitters age 18 or older (even on an occasional
basis) as an employer that must comply with all laws and regulations
that govern domestic work employees and their employers.

These requirements would have included:
Overtime pay
Income tax withholding
Payroll wages and tax reports
Disability insurance
Unemployment insurance
Meals
Rest periods, and scheduled sleep.

Just imagine -- what would have happened to your toddlers while you
and your wife are on a date night and your government-controlled
babysitter is on a required rest break, sleep period, or unavailable
to your children during a required meal for the babysitter?

This bill would have effectively ended most babysitting by anyone 18
years old or older in California.

We were greatly relieved and thankful to God that AB 889 was vetoed by
the governor!

We urge you to forward this e-lert unaltered to your friends, church,
school, and group.
