Class action lawsuit is a type of lawsuit that covers everyone under the umbrella of the lawsuit. This is when the company or an individual has committed a crime that would offend many people who fall under the umbrella of that crime. There has been many class action lawsuits in the past and currently when it comes to many businesses. Recently the world trade center has been sued with a class action lawsuit because they made people clean in unsafe conditions. Many people gotten ill out of the cleaning project. The lawsuit orders up to $600 million and this is a really big number.
Wal-mart also has been on news for lawsuits by the EOP. They have been ordered to pay for more than $10 million in discriminating against minorities’ individuals in the workplace. Macy was also the subject of the recent minority individuals attacks and had to pay a large sum too. Most companies out there have been sued by one time or another. I don’t know how long it will take until these managers will get it right and follow the laws. If you don’t, you will end up losing millions and they’re all the profit that you have. It’s pretty disappointing and it can send a company bankrupt too.
If you have been a victim of discrimination and harassment at work, you can contact an attorney and they will file a class action lawsuit against you. I guess it will take all of these class action lawsuits to get employers to be more responsible. Class action lawsuits are a way to deter future discrimination and harassment by employers. Sometimes, it’s not the employers but the mangers and other employees that cause the problem. Class action lawsuits are common and it’s time that employers follow the rules and take care of problems before problems will get them.
