Class Actions Lawyer in Long Beach, CA
What is a Class Action?
A class action lawsuit is a legal action in which one or more plaintiffs sue as representatives of a group of people with similar claims. In employment class action lawsuits, any affected employee is automatically a member of the class unless they opt out. Class action lawsuits typically take much longer than an individual case and include several additional stages. Most importantly, the courts must consider whether the complaint justifies a class action, rather than individual cases.
