UNFAIR BUSINESS PRACTICES
This office handles actions brought under the California Unfair Practices Act, sometimes referred to as "Unfair Competition." This law was enacted to safeguard the public against the creation or perpetuation of business monopolies and to foster and encourage competition, by prohibiting unfair, dishonest, deceptive, destructive, fraudulent, and discriminatory practices by which fair and honest competition is destroyed or prevented.
Unfair Business actions may be brought by any person acting for the interest of themselves or members of the general public. For example, in the recent court case of Cortez v. Purolator Air Filtration Products Company, an employee sued their employer under the California Labor Code and the Unfair Practices Act and obtain wrongfully withheld wages due all employees. One of the major advantages for the consumer in such an action, is that the Statute of Limitations may allow suits for events which occurred up to four years prior to the suit.
