Lawyers Work OT on Lawsuits
Todd Scherwin was quoted in the Los Angeles Business Journal on November 10, 2014. The article “Lawyers Work OT on Lawsuits” addressed the increasing litigation under California’s Private Attorney General Act.
Todd was quoted on his take of lawyers rushing to beat any decision by the high court, resulting in a rash of actions under the act, often called PAGA.
Todd said, he’s certainly seen the surge.
“In the last 90 days, I would say I’ve had eight to 10 PAGA claims that I’m handling right now,” he said. “It’s probably the most hotly contested or litigated issue now, or certainly the most popular wage-and-hour claim.”
