Class Action Employment Lawyer

Employment class action lawsuits are among the most commonly filed class actions. These cases involve groups of employees who sue their common employer. Employment class actions typically involve large companies or corporations. Employees band together to give their claim more legitimacy and to secure better representation. While one employee suing a large conglomerate for something like wrongful termination might be very difficult, a group would have more leverage and resources to prove their case.

    Employment Discrimination Class Actions

    Among the most common types of employment class actions are those based in discrimination. The law prohibits discrimination in the workplace based on race, religion, gender, age, national origin or disability. There are numerous actions an employer can take that violate job discrimination laws including:

    • Wrongful termination
    • Reduction in pay or benefits
    • Failure to hire or interview
    • Wrongful demotion or transfer
    • Unfairly denying job promotion


    In order to prove that employment discrimination was the motivating factor for the employer’s action, the employee must produce evidence of bias. This can be very difficult to do. It’s important to hire a class action attorney who is skilled in handling these types of cases.

    Other Types of Employment Class Actions

    Discriminatory cases are not the only types of employment class actions. Employees also commonly bring claims for:

    • Unpaid unemployment benefits
    • Unfair wage and overtime practices
    • Employment contract disputes
