At Kesluk, Silverstein & Jacob, P.C. we handle a variety of class action cases. Class action is a 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 a 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 suffered that overtime violation.
