Class action lawsuits are designed to represent an entire class of individuals at once. In a class action suit, a named plaintiff represents the members of the suit. Class action lawsuits are particularly well suited for employment law cases. Employees who have been denied their rightful wages may join together in a class action suit against a singular employer in an effort to right the wrongs against them. If you are part of a group that has been denied employee benefits, and/or if you are a protected class, a class action suit may be a viable option to obtain the desired results of your claim.
