Most employment and consumer violations are the result of illegal business practices that can harm to a large group of people. In those cases, a class action is a power 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. For example, a claim for overtime pay by one employee, 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 labor code penalties against the employer.
With class actions 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.
