What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?
Employment law class actions are a type of lawsuit that involve a group of employees who have suffered similar harm by their employer.
Essentially, it is a civil lawsuit that allows employees to join and sue a defendant in a single claim.
Class action suits are common when the award amount per person is not enough to merit an individual case, but the alleged illegal practice impacted many people.
How to Join a Class Action Lawsuit
First, you must locate an employment lawsuit in California in which you believe you have a claim. You can find employment class actions through advertisements, your workplace, or by searching online.
Sites like Top Class Actions also keep updated information about current and ongoing class actions.
Because participation in a class action suit depends on court approval or “certification,” once you find an appropriate lawsuit, you should contact the law firm representing the class.
They will determine if you are eligible to join.
