Employers who violate employment laws hope that their workers do not contact the attorneys at Thomas & Solomon LLP. Our attorneys have a national reputation for successfully handling class action lawsuits of all types and sizes. We regularly achieve favorable settlements against Fortune 500 and other large employers in courts throughout the United States.
Examples of Our Recent Successes:
- Over $50 million recovered against multiple banks that improperly paid underwriters on a salary basis, in violation of state and federal overtime laws;
- Over $20 million recovered on behalf of health care workers in New York, Pennsylvania, and Boston in class action lawsuits alleging that several hospitals failed to properly pay employees for all time worked, including meal breaks;
- Over $16 million recovered in class action lawsuits on behalf of over 100,000 current and former employees who worked for a major sports retailer;
- $1.25 million settlement of class action involving a conference and event center that illegally failed to pay gratuities in the form of mandatory service charges to banquet staff employees;
- Multimillion dollar settlement against a health care provider that improperly paid employees "comp time" in lieu of overtime.
Class actions allow workers to band together to combat large institutional employment violations and recover unpaid wages and other compensation for employers' illegal policies and practices. Class actions typically involve multiple employees alleging issues such as unpaid wages and discrimination. Oftentimes, it would not otherwise be possible for individual employees to hire their own attorney to pursue a case on an individual basis.
Unlike other firms, we have the experience and resources to go after employers who violate employment laws across the country. We have built a national reputation as a firm that tirelessly fights for the rights of workers across industries and professions. Our attorneys regularly speak at national conferences and seminars on how to litigate and settle these class action employment cases.

- Discrimination under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination Act and other federal and state laws
- Wage theft under the Fair Labor Standards Act and other state laws
- Misclassification of employees
- Employer fraud and retaliation claims against whistleblowers
