What Is an Employment Class Action Lawsuit in California?

Class action lawsuits are cases brought on by more than one person. Filing this form of litigation is possible in state or federal court, depending on the indictment. A class lawsuit is typically utilized when numerous workers want to make similar claims against their company. 

This type of lawsuit avoids the difficulty of joining all individual employees in a single suit and helps to prevent the potential for inconsistent verdicts in separate suits. In most cases, just one person must file a class action lawsuit. 

The person who files a class action lawsuit becomes the class representative for all other plaintiffs involved in this case. While serving in this role, class representatives must act in the best interests of those this individual represents. A class representative can be an employer’s former or current employee.

What Are Common Types of California Class Action Lawsuits?

Workplace abuse exists in many forms (such as unpaid wages, discrimination, or harassment). But are you the only victim? Speak to a trained class action employment lawyer to determine if your case might be suitable for a class action. 

Class action claims can involve:

  • Unpaid wages or overtime wages
  • Meal break and rest break violations
  • Unlawful deductions from wages
  • Expense reimbursement (cell phones, gas, mileage, or other expenses that weren’t reimbursed)
  • Unpaid commission wages
  • Equal Pay Act claims (gender inequality)
