Should You Be The Lead Plaintiff In A Wage And Hour Class Action Suit?
Once you have determined that your employer violated one or more laws related to wage and hour issues, next on the agenda is a decision about how to bring about justice. A careful review and analysis by an employment law attorney may reveal that an individual wage and hour claim will not be cost-effective. On the other hand, a class action suit may be appropriate if many other employees have experienced the same injustices that you have.
Perhaps you hesitate, wondering if the benefits to come through a class action suit are likely to be worth the effort. You may be interested to know about the special opportunity available to individuals who initiate class actions. Massachusetts laws offer incentives to employees or others who act as lead plaintiffs in class action lawsuits.
