Employment Class and Collective Actions

Class, collective, and multiparty litigation allows employees to not only resolve a dispute on behalf of themselves, but on behalf of individuals who are similarly situated and subject to the same unlawful policy or practice.  Sam J. Smith, the managing partner of Burr & Smith has over 25 years of experience in class, collective and multiparty litigation.  He has obtained a number of favorable results including Haynes v. Shoney's, Inc., No. 89-30093-RV (N.D. Fla. 1993), a race discrimination class action filed in Pensacola, Florida. The Shoney's class action plaintiffs obtained a recovery of $132.5 million, one of the largest monetary recoveries ever awarded in a Title VII case as of that date.  Burr & Smith also has significant experience litigating wage and hour class and collective actions and has recovered millions of dollars for workers denied wages.  Please take the opportunity to review our representative cases.
