Finally, employers scored an important win in the court of appeals that may help to rein in PAGA claims. Read below for our brief summary of these recent developments.

  1. Ninth Circuit upholds controversial California law restricting employment arbitration
  2. Court of Appeals issues important decision on the importance of manageability of PAGA claims
