Amy's Baking Company Would Be In Big Trouble In California!

I read an interesting article about Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Perhaps they can bake a mean cake, but they can't manage people. 

The company compels employees to sign an agreement with these, and other, provisions: 
  • Employees pay the costs of any damage to company equipment or products due to employee negligence;
  • Employee gives up his/her right to tips, which belong to the restaurant, in lieu of receiving a wage of $8 to $12 per hour;
  • Employers are penalized $250 per day if they miss a shift on a weekend or holiday; and
  • Employee's can't work for a competitor within 50 miles for a period of one year. 
My advice for employees -- STAY AWAY

With that said, let's have a little fun.  I will send a Starbucks or Jamba Juice card to the first person who emails me the correct answer to this question:  Identify the Wage Order Provision, the Labor Code provision, and the Business & Professions Code Provision that would be violated if Amy's Baking Company was in California.
