Class Actions

We are proven leaders and experts in prosecuting and settling class and collective actions for workers and other plaintiffs. We are here to defend your rights and make sure that no employer or other entity takes illegal advantage of you, whether in your paycheck, hiring, firing, and job opportunities, or in violating other important rights to fair treatment.  We handle class actions on a contingent fee basis; Johnson, Webbert & Young, LLP is paid only out of its recovery from Defendants and you pay nothing to us.

We have sued some of the largest employers in the country (including agri-business, large computer and tech companies, health care companies, and supermarkets) and in Maine  (call centers, paper companies, construction companies, restaurants, counties, and the State of Maine).  Class and collective actions empower you and your coworkers to pursue justice as a united group. By acting together, we can help you fight injustices more efficiently and with strength in numbers.

If you and your co-workers think your employer is discriminating against you because of your race, age, sex, religion, national origin, disability, or sexual preference; is cheating you out of overtime, failing to pay you for all hours worked, forcing you to work off the clock, requiring you to share tips with back of the house employees; or engages in a plant closing or mass layoff without paying you severance pay, you should contact us.
