PAGA Doesn’t Compute

When Rick Roussin founded Coast to Coast Computers, he was committed to hiring people who needed a second or third chanceĀ in life. Employees enjoyed a flexible work schedule and a friendly work environment. One employee brought a lawsuit against the company after they had been demoted. The employee’s lawyers then tried to recruit other employees to sue. When this tactic didn’t work, the lawyer filed a PAGA lawsuit against the company. As a result, the culture of Rick’s company had to change dramatically. Employees were no longer afforded flexible work schedules, meaning they had to forgo watching their kids’ soccer games or spending more time with a loved one who was under their care.
