Laid-off workers move forward with class action litigation

When a considerable number of people are affected by a single issue, it is possible that they may all have reason to take legal action against the offending party. However, rather than filing multiple lawsuits for each affected person, class action litigation is often utilized. These cases typically involve one person representing the group, or class, and a single lawsuit moving forward.

Florida readers may be interested in a class action lawsuit that was recently filed in another state. Reports indicated that the issue involved the laying off of approximately 230 workers from a candy plant. The workers believe that their employer did not follow the proper federal protocols relating to layoffs. Because of this violation, two individuals filed the lawsuit on behalf of the other workers.

The workers believe that they were not properly warned that the plant would be closing and that they would, in turn, lose their jobs. The workers should have been given a 60-day notice of the layoffs. Since that did not take place, the workers hope that the lawsuit will allow them to obtain 60 days worth of back pay.

Class action litigation is sometimes necessary when there are a considerable number of people involved. These cases can be immensely complicated, and having the right information for dealing with such a case could make a difference in its outcome. Therefore, Florida residents affected by such cases may want to enlist the help of legal professionals who can help parties understand these situations and what the legal process may entail.
