This, allegedly, includes the time Plaintiff and other Aggrieved Employees had to wait in line and submit to mandatory temperature checks for Covid-19 screening. To the extent that the time worked off the clock did not qualify for overtime premium payment, Defendant failed to pay minimum wages for the time worked off-the-clock in violation of Cal. Lab.

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.
