The Benefits of an Employment Class Action
While it is always possible to bring an individual claim, a class action settlement or lawsuit can:
- Reduce litigation costs for each individual class member
- Change the power dynamics, often in favor of the employees
- Increase visibility of your employer’s actions
- Ensure that everyone who is being mistreated has a voice
Furthermore, if you put your name on the complaint, you may be eligible for additional compensation as the class representative.
Under the Private Attorney General Act, employees and classes of employees can sue employers for violations of the California Labor Code. Unlike other employment law claims, claims under the PAGA allow private citizens to act in the place of the attorney general and pursue civil penalties normally available only to the State. Employees who bring PAGA claims are able to split the civil penalties with the State. Our attorneys are very knowledgeable in this area and have given presentations to other attorneys about the Private Attorney General Act and class action issues.
