Class Actions Proudly Serving All of California

Class Action Attorney in Sacramento

Did Multiple People Suffer a Similar Mistreatment?

A group of employees who have been mistreated or abused by an employer under similar circumstances and/or by similar means can band together to form a class action lawsuit. The Law Office of Jeffrey D. Fulton can help such employees by facilitating the lawsuit and arguing on behalf of the members of the class.

We have 20+ years of experience in handling many different kinds of employment law matters for our clients. While clients typically come to us as individuals with isolated problems, it’s not uncommon for more than one person employed by the same company to come forward with claims about discrimination or their employer’s wage practices. If you believe more than one of your coworkers has been mistreated as you have been, consult with our class action attorney in Sacramento to explore your options for taking legal action.

Why Are Class Actions So Important?

There’s strength in numbers. When two or more – sometimes as many as hundreds or thousands – of people have been similarly mistreated by the same employer, forming a class action can help everyone address the injustices they faced. This is especially important for those who do not have the financial means to pursue a claim on their own.

In the same vein, it’s often uneconomical to move many individual claims forward where the cost of prosecuting each can exceed the payout. By forming a class action, many more individuals can be added to a single case, thus multiplying the potential gross compensation; when dealing with large corporations that employ thousands, for example, damages can be awarded in the multimillions and each member receives a share, sometimes relative to how they were affected.

What Kind of Claims Do Class Actions Involve?

Class action lawsuits can center around any kind of employment law claim. Some claims are more common or make the news cycle more often than others, but there are not many limitations on what kinds of claims form class actions. As always, the key factor is that more than one employee is experiencing the same or similar kind of mistreatment under similar circumstances.

Typically, however, employment class actions that involve the following issues are quite common:

  • Discrimination
  • Unpaid wages and overtime
  • Employee misclassification
  • Improper wage deductions
  • Wrongful termination and illegal layoffs
  • Inaccurate pay stubs
  • Unfair or overburdensome severance and release agreements

Unfortunately, there’s no real limit to what can result in a class-action lawsuit because how employers can mistreat their workers is limitless, although always illegal.

Are There Benefits to Initiating a Class Action?

Class representatives are typically those who initiated the case or joined the lawsuit early on. Some may feel discomfort about being so “close to the action,” but if the court certifies the case as a class action, the plaintiffs gain a lot of leverage over the defendant – especially if the size of the class expands to much greater proportions. The risks that class representatives assumed early on are typically rewarded following the verdict or settlement.
