WAGE & HOUR AND PAGA CLASS ACTIONS

In Ag over the past decade there has been an explosion of employment-related class action cases specifically attacking Ag employers on theories that they are violating wage and hour laws – overtime, meal and rest breaks to give a few examples. An exponential increase in Private Attorney General Act claims or “PAGA” collective representative actions seem to be a dime a dozen these days. That is because the legislature lessened the burden on private attorneys’ ability to leverage the potential collection of large awards against employers by assuming the role of the attorney general and avoiding formal burdens required by the courts in regular class action proceedings.
