California Supreme Court Eases Class Action Rules Under Private Attorney General Act


The California Supreme Court has made it easier for workers to seek civil penalties against their employers for Labor Code violations, ruling unanimously that employees do not have to qualify their lawsuits under the California Private Attorney General Act (“PAGA”) as class actions. See Cal. Labor Code §§ 2699 et seq.; see also Arias v. Superior Court, 2009 Cal. LEXIS 6017 (Cal., June 29, 2009).
