Class Action Attorneys

Class actions are a powerful type of legal action, but they are often misunderstood. They can help streamline a large number of similar claims against a single business into one legal action, often saving time and effort for one or both sides. They also eliminate the need for individual workers and consumers to argue the same case over and over again in individual proceedings.

The true power of class action litigation is its ability to bring justice to a large group of people who have been similarly affected by the illegal or unethical practices of a company, employer, or the government, and also to bring accountability and change.

The attorneys at Olivier & Schreiber LLP have extensive experience representing plaintiffs in class action cases. We understand what it takes to build and present a successful claim and can help you determine the best course of action in your case.

Common types of class action cases include:

  • Wage & hour – These claims often involve wage theft, break violations, or employees who have been misclassified as exempt or independent contractors by their employers. , .
  • Pay Equity – These claims usually involve women employees receiving less pay for the same work as their male colleagues.
  • Employment discrimination – Employees who experience sexual harassment, discriminatory hiring practices, or a hostile workplace may be eligible for class action claims against an employer or potential employer.
  • Housing discrimination – The Fair Housing Act prohibits landlords from engaging in discriminatory practices against current or potential tenants on the basis of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, familial status, or disability.
  • False advertising and/or misrepresentation – The use of false advertising practices is unlawful under federal law as well as California law, which prohibits providing consumers with information about services or products that is misleading or untrue.

These are the types of cases we see most frequently, but there are other instances in which class action litigation may also be appropriate. For a more detailed analysis of your claim, please contact our office.
