Class action lawsuits can be especially powerful in employment law. They are a high stakes way to seek a remedy for a large number of employees in one lawsuit, instead of litigating numerous lawsuits against the same employer.
They normally involve multiple employees who claim their employer violated some aspect of employment law and they suffered damages as a result. Depending on the size of the employer and the legal issue, these cases could potentially involve thousands of employees and millions of dollars in damages.
The Bloom Firm helps employees who feel they’ve been the victim of illegal employment practices and seeking damages through a class action as well as employers defending themselves in these cases. If you’re an employee who feels a number of people are suffering through illegal treatment, or an employer who is, or may be, the defendant in a class action lawsuit, contact our office so we can discuss the situation and the best way to protect your rights and interests. The law includes time limits on your right to file a legal action, so consult with an attorney as soon as possible so you can understand your rights and decide how to proceed.
