Four Common Questions about Employment Class Action Litigation

When an employer uses unlawful employment practices that affect multiple employees, class action litigation may be the best avenue of bringing the company to justice. Determining whether to file an individual suit or to pursue a class action suit requires careful consideration of multiple issues.

The attorneys at Markoff Leinberger are experienced at both approaches. We can advise you of your options for recovering lost wages and other costs resulting from your employer’s unlawful actions.

Common Examples of Wage Theft

As an employee, it is important that you know your rights in regard to compensation. Your employer has legal obligations to pay you fairly for your time worked. Unfortunately, some employers do not adhere to regulations and will try to find ways to keep your hard-earned income.

Wage Theft Over the Holiday Season

Wage theft, most commonly overtime and minimum wage violations, is unfortunately very common. Employers often take advantage of their employees, trusting that the fear of losing their job will prevent employees from speaking out about incorrect wages or unpaid overtime. However, you should know that even minimum wage employees still have rights. This holiday season, don't let your employer steal your rightful wages.
