Stealth Class Actions

GC New York

Littler attorneys discuss the new trend in class actions; the phantom lawsuits that are not publicly filed complaints, but letters of demand sent to employers, threatening legal action, but also offering to resolve the matter confidentially.  Littler attorneys advise on tactics for managing and responding to such a threat by preserving evidence, retaining documents and information, lining up experts, managing communication with employees, and putting procedures in place to deal with demand letters just as they have with formal complaints.
