Cantrell Zwetsch attorneys represent employees in a multitude of collective actions against employers of all sizes. Cantrell Zwetsch lawyers have the legal experience, litigation resources, and knowledge necessary to prosecute and win complicated collective actions.
Like their procedural cousin the “class action,” collective actions are an important tool to vindicate the rights of groups of employees who suffered similar wage violations. Under the federal wage and hour statute, FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), if employees wish to bring a group claim in federal court to recover lost wages, such as unpaid minimum wages or overtime, they must file a collective action rather than a class action, which has different procedural rules.
Cantrell Zwetsch lawyers are experts in both collective and class actions and in prosecuting every kind of wage violation.
