Viking River Cruises v. Moriana

On June 15, 2022, the United States Supreme Court handed down its long-expected decision in the case of Viking River Cruises v. Moriana, with all but one justice ruling to dramatically limit California’s Private Attorneys’ General Act (also known as “PAGA”).

For anyone invested in workers’ rights, this moment is without question a turning point.  The Supreme Court’s ruling⸺as well as Californians’ response to it⸺will affect how employee-employer disputes are fought and won for the foreseeable future.  Taking action now to combat the most negative effects of the ruling on employees is imperative.

Unfortunately, both the Supreme Court’s opinion in Viking River and the PAGA law in dispute  are as legally complex as they are critical to the continued fight for working Californians’ rights.  To cut through some of the obscurity surrounding the issue, here are some answers to questions you might have.

What is PAGA and how does it work?

Why did California pass PAGA into law?

What issue did the Supreme Court decide in Viking River?

What is arbitration and why do employers want it?

What did the Supreme Court rule in Viking River?

Is there any silver lining to the Supreme Court’s ruling?

What does the Viking River decision mean for me?

What’s coming next?

What can I do to protect my rights?

If you keep all of this in mind when dealing with your employer, the chances are much better that an employment lawyer will be able to help you to obtain justice⸺not only for yourself, but for all other employees, as well.  If at any point you have questions or believe you may have a claim under PAGA, feel free to contact us at (323) 205-7796 for further information.

Came to this Law Firm for unlawful termination and senior prejudice along with coworkers, including that were furloughed then terminated. I came to know of this firm through Howard Thomas. Though it did take approximately two years, the outcome was to my satisfaction.
