The trial court erred in compelling arbitration of plaintiff’s individual wage and hour claims while retaining jurisdiction over his PAGA claims.  The employer’s arbitration clause contained a waiver of “representative” claims–a word broad enough to encompass PAGA claims.  Since PAGA claims cannot be waived, the purported waiver was invalid.  But the arbitration clause also said that the waiver provision was not severable.  So the employer could not avoid the invalidity of the waiver by seeking to arbitrate just the employee’s individual claims and leaving that PAGA claims forr the court to adjudicate.  Doing that would achieve the severance that the contract prohibited.  The decision follows Securitas Security Services USA, Inc. v. Superior Court (2015) 234 Cal.App.4th 1109, which involved similar facts and reasoning.
