Reynaldo Fuentes Champions Critical California Labor Law

Fellow Reynaldo Fuentes (’19) coauthored a UCLA Labor Center report about California enforcement actions that secure lost compensation for workers, “California’s Hero Labor Law: The Private Attorneys General Act Fights Wage Theft and Recovers Millions From Lawbreaking Corporations,” released on the center’s website in February 2020. The state law “has demonstrably enhanced Labor Code compliance among employers, built enforcement capacity among state agencies, and ensured that violations of the law have a meaningful remedy,” the report stated.
