Inland Empire Class Actions Attorneys

Class action lawsuits are designed to represent an entire class of individuals at once. In a class action suit, a named plaintiff represents the members of the suit. Class action lawsuits are particularly well suited for employment cases. Employees who have been denied their rightful wages may join together in a class action suit against a singular employer in an effort to right the wrongs against them. If you are part of a group that has been denied employee benefits, and/or if you are a protected class, a class action suit may be a viable option to obtain the desired results of your claim. Fernandez & Lauby LLP offers a free initial consultation to discuss the class action option. To schedule your appointment call us at 888-959-8508.

Class Action Lawsuits for Protected Classes in the Workplace:

One of the advantages of a class action suit is that it significantly raises the amount requested for damages. The named defendant - for example, an employer - will tend to take the case far more seriously than if just a single plaintiff is represented. Class action lawsuits may be effective for:

  • Workplace discrimination allegations
  • Wrongful termination of numerous employees
  • Pay disputes regarding overtime wages
  • Other workplace issues

Class Action Issues:

Class action lawsuits may address various employment law issues in the workplace. These may include:

  • Whether an employee is correctly exempted from overtime
  • Whether overtime is correctly applied - e.g., the 8 hour day and 40 hour week overtime rule
  • Meal periods - whether they are correctly timed
  • Breaks during the workday - are they properly calculated
  • Other work issues and benefits that affect numerous individuals
  • Contract disputes affecting numerous employees
  • Whistleblower cases involving several plaintiffs
  • Others - ask your attorney

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
