WHAT IS PAGA?
Californians Deserve a Solution
PAGA shakedown lawsuits have exploded over the last decade yet state data shows that workers have better outcomes when their claims are handled by an independent regulator.
- Double penalties for willful violations, but eliminate stacking of penalties
- Direct 100% of penalty payments to the employee instead of giving the bulk of the money to the state
The Stop the Shakedowns coalition supports meaningful PAGA reforms to create better outcomes for workers, small businesses, and non-profits. We support public education, legislative fixes, and court outcomes that align with our supported policy platform to reform PAGA and prevent it from being used to line the pockets of trial lawyers at the expense of workers and businesses.
PLEASE NOTE: Joining the coalition is not an endorsement of any legislation, campaign or ballot initiative. The coalition will contact your organization with opportunities to engage in PAGA reform.
