Class-action litigation is on the rise, whether in the form of wage and hour collective actions or claims of systemic discrimination made by the EEOC, OFCCP, or private plaintiffs. FordHarrison has significant experience in class-action litigation and can provide cost-effective representation to employers both before and during litigation. Our firm regularly partners with clients to provide advice, practices and policies geared toward preventing class-action litigation from ensuing in the first place.
In the event employers are faced with a class action, FordHarrison attorneys are highly experienced in defending class-action litigation, including opposing class certification at the early stages of litigation; negotiating beneficial settlements; conducting efficient and effective class-wide discovery; proper use of statistical analysis to defeat adverse-impact claims; and understanding the nuances of the various state laws and class-action procedures, especially in class action hotbeds such as California.
As in all matters, but especially in class-action litigation where the stakes and costs can be high, FordHarrison strives to ensure that its class-action defense is client-focused and responsive; consistent with the client's business objectives; and cutting edge, efficient, and cost conscious.
