A class-action lawsuit may need to make an entrance inside the workplace when legal problems are affecting many of the company’s employees. It is the type of lawsuit that allows these employees who are suffering from the same injustice within a corporation to unite together and form a group of plaintiffs, or class, to face the defending employer.
Because this involves extremely complicated litigation, employees will need a Woodland Hills class action attorney who is thoroughly prepared to take it on and succeed. At the Marcarian Law Firm, our depth of skills and resources, after years of experience, is what you and your co-workers will need during this difficult time.
If you would like to start or join a class-action lawsuit in California, the court system requires a few things from a class of employees:
A judge will also need to determine whether or not there are enough employees to form a class; if not, each employee will need to file individual claims separately.
The Fairness in Class Action Litigation bill of 2017 was introduced in the United States House of Representatives, which will prevent plaintiffs from seeking compensation from their employer. In essence, the bill limits the ability of people to recover through class-action lawsuits by requiring, as we discussed above, that they all suffered the same type and scope of injury. That means, if two employees received different injuries from the same defective equipment, they cannot be part of the same class-action lawsuit.
The bill also requires the court to admit all payments made to plaintiffs in class action lawsuits and prevents plaintiffs from hiring the same class action lawyer twice.
