Class Action Claims Protect the Rights of Consumers

Almost everyone understands how a lawsuit works. If someone is hurt or suffers damages as a result of another’s actions, the injured party can bring a lawsuit to recover the cost of the damages they have suffered.

But what happens when many people suffer damages as the result of one party’s actions? In these cases, the parties can join together and bring a class-action lawsuit. A class action claim is a great tool to help multiple parties receive compensation for damages suffered.

In recent years, discussing gender politics at work has become a generally bad idea. There is no way to have this discussion without somehow offending someone.

A gender discussion at work recently led to an engineer being fired from internet giant Google, according a recent report from

Gayla Shelby v. Two Jinns, Inc.

On August 3, 2017, A California federal judge on Monday gave final approval to a $457,000 settlement resolving claims brought pursuant to the Electronic Funds Transfer Act against a California Based Bail Bonds Company that consumers said illegally debited money from their bank accounts without written authorization.

Employers behaving badly: Discrimination in the workplace

Whether you are a long-time employee seeking a promotion or a potential employee at your initial interview, employers are strictly prohibited from discriminating on the basis of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Race or national origin
  • Pregnancy

Will the high court allow discrimination on sexual orientation?

In another bold move against the LGBT community, President Trump's administration has asked a federal appeals court to deny discrimination protection for transgender individuals.

Federal input on a private lawsuit

All employees have rights, even port truckers.

Port-trucking is an occupation many people don’t think about. Port truckers are the people who take items the small distance from factories to the ports where they are shipped to stores. This is a small but critical step in the overall shipping operation.

Although port trucking is important to the US economy, the actual drivers who do this work have been treated poorly. Port truck drivers and their families need to understand their employment law rights.

Protecting employee privacy rights in the technological age

The vast majority of Americans place a significant value on their privacy. This value extends to many spheres of life: including privacy at home, online privacy and privacy at work, to name a few.

The issue of privacy at work becomes more challenging to maintain in the era of biometric information. Since the regular use of biometric information is relatively new outside of criminal investigations, the law has work to do in order to catch up and provide clarity in this emerging area of law.
