Documenting the Magnitude of PAGA Abuse

The growth in PAGA notices has been astronomical. In 2016, more than 5,000 PAGA complaints were filed — an astonishing 1,440 percent increase from the law’s first year in effect. This website represents the first attempt to make PAGA case data easy for the public to browse and review.

Methodology: These data were downloaded directly from the State of California’s PAGA case search page. The law firm name in a PAGA notice is often entered with slight variations; in other cases, the firm name has been changed or modified following a subsequent PAGA complaint. We’ve attempted to standardize the names where possible, although  many firms may still appear more than once.
