Perez v. U-Haul Co. of CA, 262029

In a representative action under the Private Attorneys General Act of 2004 (PAGA), Lab. Code sections 2698 et seq., alleging that defendant violated several provisions of the Labor Code, including overtime and meal break requirements, the trial court's denial of defendant's motion to compel plaintiffs to individually arbitrate whether they qualified as 'aggrieved employees,' and therefore had standing to pursue a PAGA claim, under Labor Code section 2699(a), is affirmed where California law prohibits an employer from compelling an employee to split the litigation of a PAGA claim between multiple forums.
