The Impact of the Supreme Court’s Viking River Ruling on California PAGA Claims

The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in the case of Viking River Cruises Inc. v. Moriana has significant implications for staffing companies operating in California. The case involves the enforcement of employer arbitration agreements that cover employee claims under California’s Private Attorneys General Act. The Supreme Court held that employee agreements to arbitrate their individual PAGA claims are enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act.

But questions remain as to whether employers can require employees to arbitrate such claims as a condition of employment, and the effect of the decision on nonindividual claims. ASA has published a new issue paper by California litigation expert Sarah Kroll-Rosenbaum that examines these complex issues. The paper supplements the recent ASA webinar “The U.S. Supreme Court’s Arbitration Ruling in Viking River and What it Means for Staffing Firms,” presented by Kroll-Rosenbaum on June 22. ASA members can access the recording of that webinar for free.
