In this episode of California Employment News, Lukas Clary and Meagan Bainbridge discuss the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Viking River Cruises, Inc. v Moriana holding that the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) preempts the California law precluding division of individual and non-individual Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) actions for purposes of compelling arbitration. Not only is arbitration of individual PAGA claims now in play, but employees may not have standing to pursue non-individual PAGA actions in court.
