Fisher Phillips: 10 Biggest Potential Changes for Employers if PAGA Reform Becomes Law

As we reported last week, legislation was proposed that would significantly reform California’s Private Attorney’s General Act. The proposed amendments would be a welcome change for California employers, curtailing frivolous lawsuits and high employer penalties. News of the proposal comes after months of discussions between the Governor’s administration, labor advocacy organizations, and business groups.

In response to the proposal, our labor law partners Fisher and Phillips have put together a blog outlining the 10 potential changes that employers can expect if the proposed legislation is passed into law. Read the blog from Fisher Phillips here.

We will continue to monitor the status of this legislation and keep the membership updated. Should these changes come to fruition, employers should be prepared to update handbooks, conduct audits, and train employees. To help you do so, we would like to remind all CCM members that they have access to 1-hour of free legal counsel with a Fisher Phillips attorney as a part of our partnership with the firm.
