Class Actions

For more than a decade, Rudy, Exelrod, Zieff & Lowe, LLP has been the leader in the representation of employees in wage and hour class actions. The firm pioneered the use of class action litigation to recover unpaid overtime wages for employees and obtained the largest overtime judgment in United States legal history in the landmark class action case, Bell, et al. v. Farmers Insurance Exchange, in which the total recovery exceeded $200 million.

We have also brought class actions to address other types of violations, such as a class action lawsuit against SBC Communications (Dudley, et al. v. SBC Communications, Inc.), which accused SBC of systematically violating the California Family Rights Act and the Family Medical Leave Act. The settlement in that case required SBC to pay millions of dollars to the class members and to change its medical certification form.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss a potential case. We are currently working on a number of class actions against major employers:
