The lawsuit filed against Legends Sales & Marketing, LLC, alleges PLAINTIFF and other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES should have been properly classified as non-exempt employees entitled to overtime compensation. Allegedly, DEFENDANT misclassified employees solely on the basis of their job title and without regard to DEFENDANT’s realistic expectations, the actual overall requirements of the jobs, the hours worked or the pay received by the employee. Therefore, DEFENDANT allegedly failed to provide accurate wages or overtime compensation due to employees being wrongly classified as exempt.
PAGA is a mechanism by which the State of California itself can enforce state labor laws through the employee suing under the PAGA who do so as the proxy or agent of the state’s labor law enforcement agencies. An action to recover civil penalties under PAGA is fundamentally a law enforcement action designed to protect the public and not to benefit private parties. The purpose of PAGA is not to recover damages or restitution, but to create a means of “deputizing” citizens as private attorneys general to enforce the Labor Code. Allegedly, as a result of their rigorous work schedules, “PLAINTIFFS and other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES were from time to time denied their proper rest periods by DEFENDANT and DEFENDANT’s managers.”
