California Class Action Attorneys

Experienced Class Action Representation

In many cases, employer misconduct is systemic and does not occur in isolation.

Our California class action lawyers at Strauss & Strauss, APC can assist you and your colleagues explore your legal options. We have handled cases involving denied overtime pay, denied meal periods, “off the clock” work, and many other systemic violations of labor law that impact multiple employees.
