Litigation & Class Actions

Class Actions

Outten & Golden attorneys focus on bringing class actions against employers. When employers violate employment laws, they often do so against groups of similar employees at once. In those situations, class actions allow employees to vindicate their rights as a group, which is more efficient economically and creates strength in numbers.

We represent employees who have been victims of unlawful discrimination in the workplace, including harassment by their employers, and employees who have been victims of wage theft by their employers, such as unpaid overtime. Through class action litigation, employees can get the type and breadth of data necessary to prove that an employer has violated the law against them as a group and create company-wide changes to prevent future violations. 

Class action litigation requires a particular expertise, resources, and skills to prosecute successfully. Outten & Golden attorneys have substantial experience prosecuting and settling employment class actions and are well versed in class action law. Outten & Golden has expertise in class litigation recognized by dozens of courts and by workers’ rights organizations that have honored us with prestigious awards for our work in employment class litigation. Outten & Golden is extremely qualified to manage and prosecute complex multi-party class actions on behalf of large numbers of employees.
