Correia v. NB Baker Electric, Inc., 073798

Held that employees alleging wage-hour violations could not be forced to arbitrate claims seeking civil penalties under California's Private Attorney General Act, because California law prohibits compelled arbitration of such claims. The employer unsuccessfully raised an argument based on the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision in Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, 138 S. Ct. 1612 (2018). Affirmed the trial court.
