California Business & Industrial Alliance (CABIA) Files Lawsuit against the State of California's Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA)
PAGA lawsuits are increasing, with over 6,000 filed last year on California employers andcan be filed by one employee on behalf of all employees.
 
A recent appellate court ruling said that an employer who violated wage and hour laws by omitting the employee's social security last four digits on the paycheck, was guilty of PAGA. Even though all employees were paid timely and fully, PAGA penalties were applicable. Those penalties are a minimum of $10,000 per employee.
 
CALPASC Director of Risk Management, Bruce Wick, has been working alongside the CABIA group for the past year and a half. Bruce was in attendance at the CABIA press conference in Orange County on November 28, 2018.

The PAGA statutes were enacted in 2004, and should have been eliminated years ago.CALPASC believes the lawsuit should be supported financially, and will be setting up meetings in January, 2019; to encourage support for this effort.
 
Stay tuned for the dates and times of those meetings, and let's fight back against a law that is only being abused, and does nothing helpful for employees or employers.
