Class action lawsuits are one of the ways to pursue a claim by many people who have similar grievances. These lawsuits are filed by a lead plaintiff on behalf of the entire class against a company. In order to join in a class action, all participants must be able to show that they suffered similar injuries or losses. One of the key benefits of a class action is that the costs associated with bringing the claim is taken out of the total recovery obtained in the case. None of the participants are required to pay any attorneys’ fees or costs and are able to obtain some relief when they otherwise would not have received anything at all.
Wage and Hour
In many cases, you are not the only one who have experienced issues with your pay, not getting your meal and/or rest periods, not getting paid overtime, or being required to work before or after you have clock in/out. Your employer may be treating everyone at your company the same way, and breaking the law for each of them in the same way. You may think that it may be too difficult to go after your employer or that you just don’t have the money to pay for an attorney, but there is a way to get justice without having to pay for an attorney up front.
One of the ways pursue an employer who has violated the law against so many of its employees is called a class action. In a class action lawsuit, each and every employee who were harmed by the employer’s conduct are able to pursue their claims as a group.
