Complete victory in PAGA case

SEPTEMBER 2020 – On behalf of a Fortune 500 company, Summer Young-Agriesti and Ana Thomas obtained a complete victory in a PAGA case involving almost 2,000 class members, one of only a few PAGA trials in Orange County California.

The case revolved around wage statements and the applicable hourly rate to be displayed on the wage statement for hourly employees who also received bonuses. Although the trial court disagreed with our theory, the Court of Appeals reversed, and the California Supreme Court also sided with the employer. This is an unusually favorable outcome in today’s employment law climate.
