A class action wage/hour lawsuit in California is a lawsuit in which a large group of employees with the same grievance against their employer sue their employer as a group.
A class action suit in a wage and hour case might make sense if an employer was, as a matter of course, violating California wage/hour laws with regard to a number of employees. Moreover, if one employee has been subjected to violations in the workplace, it is likely that other employees have endured similar violations.
If you suspect that your employer is in violation of any California employment and labor laws and has violated your rights and/or the rights of other employees, you may be able to file a class action lawsuit. In a class action lawsuit, an individual employee can file a complaint against an employer on behalf of other similarly situated employees. The class action lawsuit brings together and disposes of thousands of claims at one time that are impractical to litigate individually, making the process much more efficient.
