With the ever-increasing popularity of arbitration provisions in employment contracts, the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA) has emerged as a critical tool allowing employees to enforce their rights under the Labor Code in state court. PAGA authorizes “aggrieved employees” to bring representative civil actions against employers on behalf of themselves and other aggrieved employees for Labor Code violations, and recent cases have affirmed that PAGA claims are not subject to arbitration. Join John Hyland for a guided tour through the fundamentals of PAGA claims.

Program Highlights:

  • What PAGA does and does not cover
  • How PAGA claims differ from traditional class actions
  • Who is an “aggrieved employee”
  • Prerequisites to filing suit
  • Litigating a PAGA claim
  • Defending against PAGA claims
  • Remedies

This is a basic-level program. No prior employment law experience is assumed.
