A class action is the type of lawsuit where someone brings a claim, not just on their own behalf, but on the behalf of many people that are similarly situated to themselves. For instance, if you know that everyone that you worked with didn’t really get paid overtime, despite the fact that they worked more than eight hours in a day or more than 40 hours in a week, and there was sufficient number of people that experience that same violation, a class action could be brought to recover damages on behalf of all those people that suffer that overtime violation. If you want to know how to take part in a class action, feel free to call us at Kesluk, Silverstein, Jacob & Morrison, P.C. and we’ll explain to you the process of how you stand on behalf of the class and how you advocate for all of these individuals. As a class representative plaintiff, you will bring a claim for all of these employees who suffered a similar violation to yourself.
