The lawsuit filed against Marriott International, Inc., alleges the company, failed to reimburse and indemnify the PLAINTIFFS and the other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES for required business expenses. Additionally, as a result of their rigorous work schedules, PLAINTIFF and other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES were periodically denied their proper meal and rest periods. PLAINTIFF and other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES forfeited minimum wage and overtime compensation by working without their time being accurately recorded and without compensation at the applicable minimum wage and overtime rates.

PAGA is a mechanism by which the State of California itself can enforce state labor laws through the employee suing under the PAGA who do so as the proxy or agent of the state's labor law enforcement agencies. An action to recover civil penalties under PAGA is fundamentally a law enforcement action designed to protect the public and not to benefit private parties. The purpose of PAGA is not to recover damages or restitution, but to create a means of "deputizing" citizens as private attorneys general to enforce the Labor Code. As a result of their rigorous work schedules, "PLAINTIFFS and other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES were from time to time denied their proper rest periods by DEFENDANT and DEFENDANT’s managers."
