Speak with a Los Angeles Unpaid Wage Lawyer About Filing (or Joining) a Class Action Lawsuit
If you have a claim against your employer for wage violations, there is a good chance that many (if not all) of your coworkers have claims as well. In this scenario, you and your coworkers may be able to hold your employer accountable through a class action lawsuit. At Attorneys for Employees (AFE), we handle class action lawsuits for wage violations on behalf of employees across California, and a Los Angeles unpaid wage lawyer can explain everything you need to know.
Why should you consider a class action lawsuit instead of filing a claim on your own? In some cases, filing a claim on your own can be cost-prohibitive. Even if you are clearly entitled to compensation, the time and costs involved in filing a claim simply aren’t worth it. Filing a class action lawsuit allows you and your coworkers to share these costs. This can make taking legal action worth it—and it can also show your employer that you and your coworkers are serious about recovering the compensation you deserve.
