Class-Action Employment Cases
We use the term “class action” generally to mean claims brought under court rules permitting class actions, collective “opt-in” actions, and multiple plaintiff cases. Some of these cases involve the employees at a single location, other times all the employees in a particular job classification across the country are involved. Class-action cases involving discrimination can occur when job applicants or employees are treated differently than other individuals due to their race, gender, national origin, religion, mental or physical disability or age. The discrimination can occur in hiring practices, transfers, demotions, job assignments, terminations, harassment, compensation, benefits and many other employment-related areas.
