Class Action Cases

We file cases on behalf of individual employees and classes of employees. Sometimes an employer's unlawful conduct affects a group of workers. When that happens, we typically file a class action or a collective action, or both, to remedy the unlawful conduct for the group of workers.

We have years of experience handling class and collective actions for workers in Ohio and across the nation.
