arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Citations issued pursuant to this article shall be classified according to the nature of the violation, and shall indicate the classification on the face thereof, as follows:

(a) Class "A" violations are violations of Section 1290, 1292, 1293, 1293.1, 1294, 1294.1, 1294.5, 1308, 1308.1, or 1392, and any other violations that the director determines present an imminent danger to minor employees or a substantial probability that death or serious physical harm would result therefrom. The violation of Section 1391 for the third or subsequent time shall also constitute a class "A" violation. A physical condition or one or more practices, means, methods, or operations in use in a place of employment may constitute a violation. A class "A" violation is subject to a civil penalty in an amount not less than five thousand dollars ($5,000) and not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for each and every violation. Willful or repeated violations shall receive higher civil penalties than those imposed for comparable nonwillful or first violations, not to exceed ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

(b) Class "B" violations are violations of Section 1299 or 1308.5, or a violation of Section 1391 for the first and second time, and those other violations that the director determines have a direct or immediate relationship to the health, safety, or security of minor employees, other than class "A" violations. A class "B" violation is subject to a civil penalty in an amount not less than five hundred dollars ($500) and not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each and every violation. Willful or repeated violations shall receive higher civil penalties than those imposed for comparable nonwillful or first violations. A second violation of Section 1391 shall be subject to a civil penalty of one thousand dollars ($1,000).

(c) Nothing in this section shall preclude the imposition of criminal penalties provided for in this chapter.
