California Employment Class Action Attorneys
Most of the time, when a client has experienced a violation of rights in the workplace, that person is not alone. Whether the problem is discrimination, misclassification or some kind of wage and hour violation, most companies who commit these violations do so as a matter of policy.
Class Action Employment Lawsuits in California
If you believe you are experiencing workplace violations, you may be a part of a class of people in your company experiencing the same thing. When many people have the same lawsuit, it is called a class-action lawsuit. It brings a much stronger offense against the company and increases your chances of getting a settlement or verdict award. Marlin & Saltzman is a preeminent class-action litigation firm practicing in Los Angeles County and throughout the United States. Our California employment law attorneys know how to win a class-action lawsuit against an employer violating its employees’ rights.
Although the employment laws of California and other states are quite clear, many employers attempt to take advantage of their employees through:
- Off the clock work
- Late payment of wages or commissions
- Failure to pay vacation and personal time
- Unpaid overtime
- Late payment of final wages or commissions
- Missing meal and rest breaks
- Failure to reimburse for business expenses
- Requiring employees to buy goods and services from an employer
- Truck driver claims
Misclassification of Employees
A common tactic of employers to cut corners and avoid paying employees overtime and other benefits to which they are entitled is to simply misclassify them:
- Misclassification as exempt
- Misclassification as manager
- Misclassification of technical writers
- Misclassification as independent contractor
Discrimination in the Workplace
Although the issue of discrimination in the workplace has been in the public eye for many years now, too many employers still attempt to discriminate.
- Gender discrimination
- Sexual orientation discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Racial discrimination
- National origin discrimination
- Religious discrimination
