Our class action lawsuit attorneys empower workers to fight back against discrimination, wage theft, unlawful hours violations, and fiduciary breaches that put pension plans at risk.

We believe class actions are one of employees’ most powerful tools for effecting positive change in the workplace.

This means that Glancy Prongay & Murray assumes the risks of litigation—we don’t get paid unless we are successful.
Federal law protects workers from discrimination on the basis of religion, skin color, national origin, gender, pregnancy, disability, age or genetic information. Primary discrimination legislation includes Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA), the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).
Our law firm is dedicated to fighting discrimination in the workplace. We work to make sure your employer treats you with the dignity and fairness you deserve. Our class action lawsuit lawyers are experienced in pursuing income losses caused by unlawful termination, loss of benefits, and/or failure to promote—we have the tools to pursue the maximum possible damages arising from discriminatory conduct or policies.
Wage & Hour Violations
Has your employer withheld wages, forced you to work “off the clock” or misclassified you as an independent contractor? You may discover that this unlawful behavior occurs company-wide, adding up to millions of dollars in losses to you and your colleagues.
The Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) protects workers from abusive working conditions. The FLSA mandates at least the minimum wage and overtime pay for covered employees. State laws often place even stricter criteria on employers regarding minimum wage and hour, as well as other important workers’ rights.
Our lawyers have extensive experience helping our clients recover their rightful wages and other damages associated with wage theft, as well as seeking remedies that will prevent your employer from repeating unlawful practices in the future. We will advocate tenaciously for the relief you deserve.
Employee Benefits & ERISA
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) protects participants in voluntary pensions and health plans by requiring fiduciaries to abide by important duties. Broadly, fiduciaries must act in the plan’s best interests and avoid conflicts of interest. ERISA also provides a number of remedies to participants, including filing a grievance complaint, filing an appeal, or suing the plan.
Our firm offers a unique approach to ERISA cases. First, we offer ERISA plans portfolio monitoring to detect problems that may indicate investment negligence or fraud. If those problems occur, we are then able to take immediate action to protect the plan from further damages and recover any losses that have already occurred. Our class action lawsuit attorneys also help classes of participants sue their plans for losses.
