Employment Class Actions

Employment Class Actions

Overview

Across the country (and particularly in California), employers continue to face class and collective actions alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and other federal and state wage and hour laws.

Our Labor and Employment team has represented employers in a wide variety of class action litigation, including FLSA collective actions, pattern and practice/disparate impact discrimination class actions, and state court class action claims involving overtime, employee misclassifications, unlawful deductions, meal and rest breaks, and violation of state unfair competition laws.

Recognizing that clients are interested in efficiency and economy, we have also successfully mediated class claims on both a settlement-fund and claims-made basis.

With more than seven decades of collective experience as class action attorneys, we understand the pitfalls and procedural practicalities that can make litigating class claims unbearably expensive. We work closely with our clients to develop a litigation strategy that manages those costly issues and works to ensure success.
