Monday, June 27, 2022, 1:00-2:30 p.m. PT | Online via Zoom | MCLE Offered

The webinar is part of a “rapid response” series hosted by the American Association for Justice (AAJ) which promotes justice and fairness for injured persons, safeguards victims’ rights—particularly the right to trial by jury—and strengthens the civil justice system through education and disclosure of information critical to public health and safety.   

The webinar panel will cover the nuances and implications of the SCOTUS decision, which interpreted a California law that permits employees to seek civil penalties on the state’s behalf for labor code violations. Central to this consequential ruling was the California Supreme Court’s determination in Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles, LLC, which said that arbitration agreements professing to waive the right to bring a PAGA claim on behalf of others are unenforceable under California Law.
