Employer Class Action Lawsuits

Class action law suits can definitely prompt sides to use various techniques and strategies.  This can vary from side to side in every aspect.  Both sides need to be ever vigilant when it comes to the other party and moves they might make.

An employment class action lawsuit for instance is when an employer has wronged a large amount of employees.  All lawsuits against an employer are put into one “class action”.
