Employment Class Action
An employment class action is typically filed on behalf of a group of employees against their employer for engaging in actions that harmed the employees in a similar manner. This can include failing to properly pay all wages earned, provide accurate pay stubs, provide meal and rest periods, properly classify employees, or provide reimbursement of reimbursable expenses, among other violations.
Why File An Employment Class Action Lawsuit?
Employment class actions are the best avenue for legal recourse when employees suffer the same mistreatment from the employer, and the employer has practices and policies in place that cause the employees to have their rights violated in a similar manner.
Many employers think that they can get away with not following California employment laws if the damages are not consequential. Some examples can be failing to pay a couple of hours of wages worked off-the-clock a week or requiring their employees to work through meal and rest periods every now and then, without compensating the employee for the additional work.
