Class & Collective Actions Lawyer Based in Miami-Dade County
Many of the applicable employment-related statutes permit plaintiffs to proceed on a class or collective basis. The attorneys at BT Law Group regularly represent both employees and employers in employment-related class and collective actions in Florida and federal courts. Specifically, BT Law Group attorneys handle:
- Wage and hour class and collective actions, including under the FLSA;
- Title VII race and gender discrimination class actions; and
ADEA class actions.
When handling class and collective actions, the focus is on performing a detailed and thorough assessment at the inception of the case to determine ways to minimize exposure and litigation costs involved with these claims. Because most of the applicable statutes contain an attorneys’ fee provision, in case where there is liability, it is generally in the best interest of the defendant to limit or resolve the litigation as early as possible in order to minimize exposure.
From an employee perspective, class or collective actions may be a way to achieve a more favorable resolution of a claim by joining forces with others who are seeking similar relief.
