There are employment or consumer claims the value of which may be small to justify an individual lawsuit. However, if the wrongful conduct harms other persons, a class action is a potent weapon to seek remedies. We have considerable experience in handling class actions.
A Class Action is a representative lawsuit by one or more persons on behalf of themselves and all other persons who have the same claims. A claim for overtime pay by one employee, for example, may be made for other employees with similar claims.
Our firm also pursues other representative actions, such as those brought under the Private Attorney General Act (“PAGA”). With PAGA, other aggrieved employees who are not named in the lawsuit can recover back wages.
With Class and PAGA Actions, employees and consumers can challenge widespread violations, and can recover compensation for valid claims. These actions deter future misconduct, and bring favorable change to business practices.
