Employment Class Action

A class action is a type of lawsuit in which several persons sue on behalf of all persons affected by a similar wrong. While the subject matter of a class action lawsuit can vary, the factual and legal issues in dispute are common to members of a class of persons.

Examples of employment related class action cases may include:

  • Overtime violations
  • Rest period violations
  • Meal period violations
  • Failure to pay wages for hours worked and/or minimum wage
  • Payroll statement violations
  • Unfair business practices
