CalChamber FREE MCLE Course on PAGA Landscape

On January 31, 2023, at 10 a.m., a virtual MCLE course hosted by the California Chamber of Commerce, in coordination with the Stop Small Business Shakedowns committee and Fisher Phillips LLP, will look at businesses’ Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) liability landscape in 2023 and beyond.

This course will specifically focus on the impact PAGA has had on California businesses and the landscape for the next year. PAGA, which has provided a litigation tool for attorneys to file costly lawsuits against California employers to recover significant penalties for alleged Labor Code violations, has forced businesses to settle more than $8 billion collectively in just the last seven years — and that number likely will double over the next five. These settlements primarily benefit attorneys, leaving little financial recovery for employees.
