Class actions or collective actions allow an individual plaintiff to bring a lawsuit on behalf of himself and all similarly situated individuals for the employer's violation of California Rules and Procedures. Attorneys at Employment Rights Law Group have worked on numerous class actions in the past. In a class action lawsuit, you are one of several plaintiffs who are filing a claim for the same reason. An attorney or team of attorneys will serve as the representative for all plaintiffs. In this scenario, your lawyer will serve the interests of your group rather than you as an individual.
If the case is successful and compensation is awarded, it will usually be distributed equally among all plaintiffs. The main benefit of a class action lawsuit is to hold the defending party accountable for wrongdoing and force them to make changes that will benefit those who have been affected.
