Employment Class Action Lawsuits

Bar Association ApprovedIf you have a valid claim against your employer for violating wage and hour laws, chances are you're not the only one in the company. Many employers find it profitable to engage in illegal practices, with the idea that employees won't notice or they will be too afraid to complain. Joining a class action lawsuit can help add your voice to many others that face the same situation.

As an employee that has worked hours at your job, you expect to receive payment from your employer. You might have even signed a binding contract outlining an agreement to getting paid. When an employer does not pay their employee, or when the employee gets unpaid wages, it can lead to legal action by the employee to recover compensation.

Employers also illegally claim that salaried employees, those with a management title or those with administrative duties, are not entitled to overtime pay. This is a way for them to avoid paying overtime, but it can be illegal. Be mindful that in California, your title and method of compensation may have nothing to do with your right to receive overtime pay. Some employers may also violate state laws by not allowing their employees mandatory lunch breaks.

Before deciding to file an employment class action lawsuit, it is advised that employees speak to a qualified class action lawyer in their area. A class action lawyer can provide valuable legal insight and find ways that will strengthen their clients' cases.

Class action lawyers look into what type of job was involved, how many hours you worked and how much you were paid for doing that work. Lawyers can give you legal options for getting fair compensation for your unpaid wages and overtime and can represent you in all aspects of your case.

If you have been denied overtime pay because you have been unjustly classified as an exempt employee, or if your employer failed to pay you the wages you are entitled to, contact Attorney Search Network today. We can help you find a class action lawyer in your area so your rights are protected.
