Attorney At Law Features Article by Laura Reathaford on Private Attorneys General Act


Laura Reathaford authored the article “The Ninth Circuit Delivers Commonsense Win to Employers Under PAGA,” featured in Attorney At Law Magazine. The article details the May 28, 2021 ruling that the 2018 California Court of Appeals decision in Huff v Securitas does not apply in federal court, meaning an employee does not have standing to bring a PAGA claim in federal court for a Labor Code violation he or she did not personally suffer. Laura states because of this “California employers have another reason to remove these cases to federal court.”
