Employment claims often lend themselves to class-action representation because many employees have likely been affected by illegal practices or unjust company policies. Typical employment class actions include instances of unpaid commissions, overtime disputes, employee misclassification and discrimination in the workplace. Whether you have been the victim of a wrongful termination or have not received proper wages, it is important to have an experienced legal professional on your side with a track record of protecting the rights of clients and always looking after their best interests.
My name is Matthew A. Kaufman and I am a Los Angeles employment class action attorney. Since 1993, The Kaufman Law Firm has recovered over $50 million on behalf of California employees in more than 100 class-action lawsuits. My experience includes representing class action members before state and federal courts, as well as serving as lead counsel on a number of high-profile cases. With offices in Westlake Village and Los Angeles, I accept cases throughout Southern California.
Both state and federal courts have begun scrutinizing new class actions more closely to avoid unnecessary lawsuits. As such, it is more important than ever to consult with a lawyer who has demonstrated experience handling class-action lawsuits. Some of my notable victories include the following:
$14.5 million on behalf of Walgreens pharmacists for unpaid wages
$11 million for Kragen Auto Parts employees for overtime pay
$7.5 million for U-Haul managers for overtime pay. This case received significant attention from the media for its precedent-setting recovery on behalf of managers who had been wrongly classified as exempt employees, even though they spent half of their work time engaged in nonexempt activities like sales and production. I acted as lead counsel on this case.
