A class action lawsuit is a legal term which means that a group of people can file a single case against one party or one cause of action. It also entails filing a case by one person against several parties or a group of people. A class action lawsuit can also be the process of filing a claim by a group of people against several parties.
Class action lawsuits are generally applicable in employment cases. In fact, almost all cases of employment or labor law violations of employers can be the subject of a class lawsuit when it involves more than one employee-victim. In discrimination cases, for example, if you and your co-employees experience age, racial, gender, disability, pregnancy, or religious discrimination, you can work with a Los Angeles class action attorney to champion your rights.
There are a lot of benefits of a class action lawsuit. For one, you are not alone in your claim. You will only need a single cause of action against the employer and already have a witness through your co-complainants to strengthen your case. Plus, you get to share the legal fees among your co-complainants. But there are also downsides like the evidence can be immense and the proof needed is also multiplied depending on the subject matter of your class action suit and the number of victims in the lawsuit.
