International energy company secures early dismissal in wage and hour class, collective, and PAGA action

Clients International energy company

Jones Day's early and aggressive litigation strategy prompted a voluntarily dismissal of a putative class, collective, and PAGA action filed against an international energy company in California federal court. The lawsuit raised claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act and various provisions of the California Labor Code and California Wage Orders. After first convincing the plaintiff to dismiss the asserted PAGA claim on statute of limitations grounds, Jones Day moved to compel arbitration on an individual basis of the remaining claims. This resulted in plaintiff's voluntary dismissal of the entire action.
