Employers have increasingly relied on arbitration agreements with employees for disputes arising out of the employment relationship, and class action waivers contained in those agreements have provided a means to avoid class or representative actions for those disputes as well. In 2014, the California Supreme Court affirmed the enforceability of class/representative action waivers in arbitration agreements generally, but carved out an exception for actions brought under California’s Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”). However, a number of federal courts have issued contrary rulings, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal just heard arguments on this same issue in a trio of consolidated wage-related cases.
