Employment Law Class Actions in California
California Class Action Lawyer
In a class action, representatives of the class sue on behalf of all individuals who have suffered the same or similar injury. Class members are entitled to recover for their injuries, even though they are not required to actively participate in the litigation.
This approach can add considerable weight to the claim by including hundreds and perhaps thousands of plaintiffs to the case.
The class-action mechanism spreads the costs of litigation to many individuals, making it possible for attorneys to recover for injuries that might otherwise be too small for a single plaintiff case. As such, class actions are an effective tool to ensure large corporations cannot profit from cheating numerous consumers or employees out of small amounts of money. If you feel that your employer or a large corporation has taken advantage of you, contact the lawyers at Chaleff Rehwald to determine if the class action approach is an appropriate response.
