Defeat of Attorney General’s Claims to Recover Labor Code Penalties

The California Attorney General brought a representative action against a small employer seeking to recover Labor Code penalties, in addition to other claims, on behalf of all employees.  In ruling on the employer’s demurrer, the court refused to allow such recovery despite the AG’s argument that it had express authority to enforce and recover the penalties.
