Cal. Lab. Code § 204(d) expressly requires employers to pay employees all wages owed within seven (7) days of the close of the payroll period. Allegedly, DEFENDANT from time to time failed to pay PLAINTIFF and other AGGRIEVED EMPLOYEES all wages owed to them within seven (7) days of the close of the payroll period.

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."
