Finally, A Positive Court Ruling on PAGA!
 
On September 12, 2019; the California Supreme Court issued an important ruling on PAGA claims. In Lawson v. Zions Bancorporation, S246711, the court ruled that an employee cannot recover "unpaid wages" through PAGA.
 
This ruling helps employers who have employment agreements with an arbitration clause utilize the arbitration for resolving the employee's unpaid wage disputes. Unfortunately, some PAGA plaintiff attorneys will likely not inform employees of the distinction prior to filing a PAGA action.
