Your Employment Law Claim Might Be A Class Action Lawsuit
When a group of people have identical or similar injuries and/or losses caused by the same illegal conduct, the group may file a class action against the defendant. This is a common approach in certain types of employment law claims. Employees who have suffered the same type of illegal conduct by an employer, such as discrimination, harassment or minimum wage violations find that there is strength and efficiency in numbers.
At Employee Justice Legal Group PC our team of more than a dozen skilled trial attorneys represents clients in both single-plaintiff and class action litigation. We have the personnel and resources to take on class action claims against major employers, and our reputation for obtaining high-value settlements and jury awards makes defendants think twice before taking the case to trial.
The First Step Is Obtaining Class Action Certification
In order to bring a successful class action, the class must be certified by the court. This means the court agrees the individuals have suffered the same or substantially similar injuries by the same defendant and the court grants the group the right to file a class action.
Violations of wage-and-hour laws is just one example of a claim that often qualifies for class action status. Employers who cheat their workers out of earned wages typically repeat this behavior with most or all employees.
We Are Ready For Whatever Direction The Case Takes
Our attorneys are well versed and equipped to handle all aspects of filing and litigating a class action lawsuit. We build the case from the ground up, ensuring that participating plaintiffs meet the criteria for a class action claim.
In the rare event that we are unable to gain certification, our work and preparation will not go to waste. We can still pursue individual claims against the defendant, utilizing the meticulous research and evidence we have gathered throughout the process.
Whether our attorneys represent you as a sole plaintiff or as part of a class, you can be sure that they will work tirelessly to obtain the justice and compensation you deserve.
