When employees are subjected to unfair treatment, discrimination, harassment, or unpaid wages within their workplace, they may have the right to file a class-action lawsuit against their employer.
By filing an employment class action lawsuit, employees can recover:
- lost wages;
- interest in his/her lost wages; and/or
- punitive damages.
Punitive damages can be collected to punish the employer for their wrongful behavior and also to compensate the employees for any pain or suffering they may have incurred.
Employment Class Action Lawsuit – Multiple Employees
Oftentimes, after an employee has been subjected to discrimination, unfair treatment, or harassment in his/her work environment, they may feel deserted or alone.
However, it is important for employees to realize that they are probably not alone.
Chances are if a company or employer was unjust to one employee, they were probably unjust to other employees as well.
It is very rare that just one employee is targeted.
In cases where multiple employees were subjected to discrimination, poor treatment, or harassment, it is usually a good idea for these employees to file a class-action lawsuit together.
When multiple employees come forward to report inappropriate workplace practices, the chances of recovering damages for the inappropriate workplace behaviors increase immensely.
