The lawsuit filed against USA Cinema Services LLC alleges that due to rigorous work schedules, PLAINTIFF and other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES were from time to time "unable to take thirty (30) minute off duty meal breaks, nor be fully relieved of duty for their meal periods." As a result of DEFENDANT’s alleged intentional disregard of the obligation to follow California Labor Codes, DEFENDANT failed to properly calculate and/or pay all required compensation.

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."
