Two recent California cases have greatly expanded the ability for employees to sue employers under the Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”).  A favorite of plaintiffs’ attorneys, PAGA allows an employee to bring a suit against an employer on behalf of other aggrieved employees, potentially recovering significant penalties as well as attorneys’ fees.  PAGA suits can and have been used against employers for even minor technical violations, such as a business listing an abbreviated name rather than the legal name of the organization on pay stubs.
