Employment Class Actions

Are you one of many employees who is part of a group experiencing the same type of discrimination? Is your employer discriminating against workers because of the same protected characteristic? If you have evidence that there is unlawful discrimination at work that is affecting a large number of employees (typically more than 40 employees), we may evaluate the potential to bring a case on behalf of a group, in a Class Action.

Our Firm obtained a $3,480,000 Consent Decree on behalf of 175 women shipyard workers as a result of the lawsuit Aviles v. BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair Inc. The Consent Decree compensated the class for the discrimination, required future promotions be based on job performance and improved BAE's response to sexual harassment complaints.

The Firm broke new ground for #MeToo movement, by obtaining class certification of 270 women truck drivers. The class action lawsuit was the subject of an ABC 20/20 report by Diane Sawyer.Sexual harassment lawsuit against long-haul trucking company in the age of #MeToo. While a judge ultimately decided not to allow the case to proceed as a class action, employees should consider whether a large group of employees might be in a position to make change in their workplace by banding together. 

Even if a case may not be brought as a Class Action, our Firm has been successfully prosecuting large multi-plaintiff cases since 2004, obtaining seven figure results.
