Anatomy of a Class Action Lawsuit
When a group of people share the same common experience, a court may decide to rule on all the cases at once. Instead of having each employee bring their case individually, all of them join forces and bring the case as a class. One or two employees serve as "lead plaintiffs." Their names are the ones that actually appear on the court documents. Because employees are sometimes afraid to assert their rights while still working, lead plaintiffs are often former employees who have less fear of retaliation.
Class actions are especially helpful if the dollar value of your individual claims is relatively small. Individually, it might not be worth the trouble to bring a suit, even though you are well within your legal rights to do so. Collectively, however, you may make a difference. Not only can you and your co-workers collect some damages, but you may be able to stop, or at least discourage, an employer's pattern of illegal conduct.
