Labor Code Section 1741

Compiled September, 2014

Our review of the annotated history reveals the following legislative history (every “c.” below represents a separate legislative bill):

Added: 2000, c. 954
•  2003, c. 849: recast the original paragraph as subdivision (a) and added subdivisions (b) and (c).
•  2013, c. 792: in subdivision (a), in the third sentence, substituted “18 months” for “180 days” in two places; deleted the former fourth sentence; and made nonsubstantive changes. Prior to deletion, the former fourth sentence in subdivision (a) read: “However, if the assessment is served after the expiration of this 180-day period, but before the expiration of an additional 180 days, and the awarding body has not yet made full payment to the contractor, the assessment is valid up to the amount of the funds retained.”

Three bills affected this section.                          

Tracing Statutory Language:

  • Research fees can be minimized by ordering only the bills that affected specific subdivisions or phrases of interest to you.
  • Changes to statutes can sometimes be determined by the annotations provided by Deering’s, Westlaw, and Lexis.
  • If annotations are not available, one strategy is to look at each chaptered law noted above to observe the changes. Another strategy is to retain us to trace your language and report our findings back to you.
