What You Need to Know About Employment Class Action

What You Need to Know About Employment Class Action

If many employees have witnessed a legal offense by the same person, they can file for an employment class action lawsuit. Read this guide to find out what you need to know about employment class action.

You Must Have Evidence That Someone’s Action Warrant a Lawsuit

Perhaps you and many of your coworkers dislike someone from work. There might even be someone most of your company cannot stand. But no matter how the majority of employees feel about someone, you cannot sue them unless you have evidence that their actions were illegal and warrant legal action.

A Class Action Lawsuit Consists of More Than One Victim

While a lawsuit consists of one victim reporting illegal action, a class action lawsuit requires many victims. The point of filing a class action lawsuit is to condense several cases against the same person into one courthouse. This makes it easier and faster for the judge to come to a decision. Having as many victims testify as possible will increase the chances that they will win the class action lawsuit. Here are a few examples of cases that many employees might experience:

  • Pay below minimum wage
  • Management refusal to pay for overtime
  • Management refusal to grant Workers’ Compensation
  • Employee termination for invalid reasons
  • Sexual harassment

Only One Person Has to Call an Attorney

Not everyone will feel comfortable coming forward and reporting a lawsuit case. No matter how many other victims there are, only one person needs to call an attorney to report the case. Hopefully, this information on what you need to know about employment class action will help you win a settlement and receive fair compensation.
