Updating Arbitration Agreements to Safeguard Against PAGA Lawsuits

July 15, 2022


What is happening with PAGA? Are arbitration agreements enforceable? Are PAGA carve-outs in or out? What is an individual or representative claim? Get past the legal parlance for a straightforward explanation of what the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision means for employers including:

  • Key updates to ensure your arbitration agreement is enforceable.
  • Considerations when implementing arbitration agreements for new and existing employees.
  • How to minimize exposure to PAGA claims.
  • What does the future hold for arbitration agreements and PAGA?


Since 2004 California’s Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) has allowed employees to file suit against their employers, as an individual or as a collective unit, on behalf of the state for Labor Code violations (minimum wage, overtime, meal and rest breaks, etc.). On June 15, 2022 the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Viking River Cruises, Inc. v. Moriana held that companies can compel arbitration of an individual’s PAGA claim. This ruling alters the landscape but is likely not the last word as the California Legislature may act in response, with the California Attorney General emphasizing that employees without arbitration agreements can still bring PAGA suits.
