Our Story

When his mid-sized manufacturing business was hit with a PAGA lawsuit at the end of 2016, it was the first time company President Tom Manzo had heard of the harmful law. His experience led him to found the California Business & Industrial Alliance (CABIA), a trade organization dedicated to fixing PAGA. As CABIA has grown, so too has Tom’s awareness of countless small businesses in the state who were victims of PAGA because they lacked the internal HR capacity to navigate the state’s 1,000+ page labor code.

To address this problem, Tom formed CABIA HR — a standalone organization focused on providing audit and compliance services to small and medium-sized businesses at affordable prices. CABIA remains focused on Tom’s original ambitious goal of fixing PAGA; CABIA HR will focus on reducing individual businesses’ exposure to the law. Given the related mission of the two organizations, 10 percent of the revenue from CABIA HR will be donated to CABIA to assist with its mission.
