New Employment - PAGA Case

  • Too Busy To Keep Up With the New CA Civil Case Law?
  • Should You Know the Important New Civil Case Decisions in Your Practice Areas?
Let Monty help you! Since 2012, I've helped lots of California lawyers easily keep current with the new case law in their practice areas by publishing California Case Summaries™ with short summaries (one paragraph), organized by legal topic, of every new civil and family law case published in monthly, quarterly and annual subscription editions.


Actions under the Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA; Labor Code, section 2698) are regularly addressed in the new published civil cases. Last month, the Second District Court of Appeal published a new decision addressing whether a party bringing a PAGA claim is entitled to a jury trial. In the video above I briefly discuss this new case.
