CDF Webinar: Setting Sail for PAGA Litigation After Viking River
With the recent United States Supreme Court decision in Viking River Cruises, Inc. v. Moriana, the landscape of California’s Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) has undergone a seismic shift. While the ruling has been widely heralded as a victory for employers, it is not so clear that smoother waters are ahead. In this webinar, members of CDF’s PAGA Litigation Practice Team will discuss the current state of the law and provide guidance that will help employers navigate the new terrain.

The presentation will focus on the ramifications of the Viking River decision, holding that, under the FAA, arbitration agreements may require PAGA plaintiffs to arbitrate a portion of PAGA actions. Under Viking River, only the “individual” portion of a PAGA action—that based on violations against the plaintiff—may be arbitrable. But questions remain about what will come of the “representative” claim after the “individual” claim is sent to arbitration. However, the California legislature is expected to counter the Viking River decision to breathe full life back into PAGA lawsuits. And recent decisions by California appellate courts fortified other unfavorable aspects of PAGA litigation.

During this webinar, the speakers will discuss the ramifications of these decisions and provide guidance for California employers seeking to reduce their potential litigation risk, cost and exposure from PAGA claims.
