Soto v. Motel 6 OperatingAnnotate this Case
Lidia Soto sued her former employer, Motel 6 Operating, L.P., alleging Motel 6 violated Labor Code section 226, subdivision (a) by failing to include the monetary amount of accrued vacation pay in its employees' wage statements. Soto filed the action in her individual capacity and on behalf of all aggrieved workers under the Private Attorney General Act of 2004 (PAGA). The trial court sustained Motel's demurrer without leave to amend. Finding no error, the Court of Appeals affirmed: section 226(a) did not require employers to include the monetary value of accrued paid vacation time in employee wage statements unless and until a payment was due at the termination of the employment relationship.
