The question is what can employees to do to fight back when their employer stops playing by the rules. On a positive note, there are many great San Francisco employment lawyers that are willing to take employee cases on a contingency fee basis so the employees do not have to put any money down. These attorneys even front all the costs of litigation to make it so that the workers have a chance of going up against a big company.
Class action lawsuits are the best way for employees to get on an even playing field with their employer when it comes to litigation. In a class action lawsuit, the employee is not only suing the company on his or her own behalf, but also on behalf of everyone who is similarly situated and has been treated unfairly by the company. Whether the class action is to collect unpaid overtime pay or for discrimination practices committed by the company, the employees stand a chance to actually get paid for the wrongful conduct as well as put a stop to the illegal employment law practices for good.
