Class Action Employment Litigation in Southern California
At the Trush Law Office, we represent plaintiff employees in complex class action litigation matters throughout Southern California for violations of State and Federal Law pertaining to the following:
Employee / Independent Contractor Misclassification
–Misclassification of exempt employees and independent contractors. Employers frequently misclassify employees to avoid paying payroll taxes, making contributions to the workers compensation fund, providing
employee benefits and paying overtime.
Meal & Rest Break Violations – Failure to make meal and rest breaks available to all qualifying employees. Damages (generally equal to one hour of pay for each violation) are available when employers fail to make these breaks available, discourage employees from taking breaks as mandated by the law, or require employees to perform work while off the clock. If working off the clock, non-exempt employees may also be entitled to recover overtime.
Unreimbursed Business Expenses – Employers are required to reimburse employees for all necessary job-related expenses incurred in the course and scope of their employment. This includes reimbursement for all employment related travel expenses such as airfare, lodging, fuel, mileage and vehicle maintenance, as well as licensing fees, office supplies, uniforms and mandatory equipment.
Wage & Overtime Disputes – An action may be brought for late payments (regular wages, overtime, commissions or final check), failure to pay an hourly wage in accordance with the law, failure to pay overtime, failure to pay commissions, failure to pay vacation time where given, and failure to pay an employee for sick time or personal time.

Class Action Employment Claims in Southern California
A class action lawsuit is a case that is brought by a named plaintiff acting as a representative on behalf of a class of people who have suffered the same type of harm or damage. Depending on the type of claim that is filed, individuals will be required to either opt in or specifically opt out. In cases that require parties to opt out, individuals who qualify as class members will automatically be deemed part of the class until they do so.
Before a case can receive class action certification by a State or Federal Court, several requirements must first be met. These requirements are:
Numerous Claims: Simply stated, there must be so many claims that are similar in nature that it is impractical to file each case separately.
Common Claims: The claims must share common factual and legal issues, such that combining all of the disputes into a single action is much more efficient for all parties as well as the court.
Typical Claims: The named plaintiffs’ claims must be typical of those of the class as a whole.
Adequate Representation by Named Plaintiffs: The named representative plaintiffs must act fairly and in such a manner to protect the interests of all class members. The rights of absent class members must always be taken into consideration to ensure that their rights are not violated.
Damages or relief may be granted to the parties who have been harmed in the form of compensatory damages, where the litigants receive monetary compensation, or in the form of injunctive relief, requiring the defendant to take specific actions or refrain from engaging in specific behavior.
