PAGA / LABOR LAW

learn more...

Our organization, the California Business & Industrial Alliance, has made more progress on PAGA reform in the last year than organizations many times our size have made in the last decade.

We're executing a strategy to reform PAGA this year, before Gov. Brown leaves office—and we have more than a fighting chance at getting it done.

The Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) authorizes aggrieved employees to file lawsuits to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, other employees, and the State of California for Labor Code violations.

Your employees and their would-be attorneys were given a tremendous power by the State of California in 2004, although it took them and the rest of the legal community a little while to figure out this awesome gift. The law, titled the Private Attorney General Act of 2004 (“PAGA”), gives employees in California the right to bring a lawsuit against their employers for any violation of the California Labor Code. In short, it allows employees to step into the shoes of an enforcement agency like the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement and recover civil penalties on behalf of the California Labor Workforce Development Agency (“LWDA”) for aggrieved employees and their coworkers.
