Class Actions For Widespread Wage And Hour Law Claims
When it comes to being fully paid and fairly treated as a worker in California, the law is clear, but some employers break the law. When that happens, employees can obtain legal advice and seek proper compensation through class action lawsuits.
A class action is a type of lawsuit in which a “class” of people – such as a group of individual workers who are employed by the same company – are represented together by an attorney or a team of attorneys. If you or one of your family members was denied his or her rights as an employee, get the legal advice you need.
