Defense Against PAGA Actions
The Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) allows your employees to pursue class-action civil penalties as a proxy of the State of California. Even if you have an arbitration agreement in your employment contracts, they can still file a PAGA action.
A PAGA action is a whistleblower type claim called qui tam. The party which assists the government agency in the case may be compensated part or all of the financial damages recovered in prosecution. The employee and their legal representation will pursue financial damages against your company.

Promptly Resolve Disputes With Employees
If a dispute is handled promptly and properly, then there is often no need for litigation. Most of the employment litigation occurs because employers have not addressed issues promptly and effectively.
It often goes a long way if you address a genuine complaint quickly within the bounds of the law and make an effort to make it right. If the dispute is due to a misunderstanding, the issue needs to be addressed quickly before it gets blown out of proportion and in a sympathetic and respectful way. Let our employer defense attorneys handle the legal matters so you can focus on building a productive work environment that challenges and inspires your employees.
At Nakase Law Firm, our experience is that genuine attempts to resolve employee disputes will often be enough to avoid litigation. We can assist you in resolving employee disputes in a timely and effective manner. If needed, we are also prepared to zealously defend you in court in either individual and class action lawsuits.
