PAGA Claims, The Future of Wage & Hour
Very few courts have taken up the issue of the PAGA claim. While the law has been on the books for close to 10 years, PAGA was not initially embraced by the private bar. Many practitioners saw it as an annoyance to have to wait the 33 days before amending. Furthermore, at the conclusion of the case some amount would have to be allocated to the state. This drove people away and claims were not brought.
