If this is an "independent contractor" situation, then it sounds like they are actually asking for an illegal kickback.

If it is an hourly employee situation, then they are asking for permission to pay illegal wages.

I'd take this to the CA Department of Industrial Relations first, no more discussions with area managers. They might be either powerless or free from owning any courage.
