John Hyland to Present CEB Seminar: “The Fundamentals of PAGA Claims”
Join John Hyland on Thursday, July 13, from noon to 1:30 for a guided seminar on the fundamentals of the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA), hosted by CEB.
Description: 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.
