On June 18, 2024, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced an agreement to reform PAGA. As background, the California Fair Pay and Employer Accountability Act sought to make changes to PAGA through a November 2024 ballot initiative. Currently, PAGA allows allegedly aggrieved employees to file lawsuits to recover civil penalties on behalf of themselves, other employees, and the State of California for California Labor Code violations. If the legislation reflecting the agreement is passed and signed into law, the proponents of the ballot initiative have agreed to withdraw the ballot measure from the November ballot.
