The California Labor Code, Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) authorizes aggrieved employees to file lawsuits to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, other employees, and the State of California for Labor Code violations. Those who intend to pursue PAGA cases must follow the requirements specified in Labor Code Sections 2698 – 2699.5.
PAGA requires that new claim notices, responses, and certain court documents be filed with the Labor and Workforce Development Agency (LWDA). The table below reproduces new claim notices entered into the state’s PAGA database after January 1, 2020. For addition information on the PAGA Act, see https://www.labor.ca.gov/resources/paga/.
