If an employer exposes any employee to an unacceptable risk of injury or death, they may be negligent. One prominent employment class-action lawsuit involves employees who experienced asbestos exposure and eventually developed mesothelioma.

Discrimination in the workplace may manifest as:
You might join a class-action lawsuit if you suffered these or any other forms of discrimination by your employer.
When numerous employees suffer sexual harassment because an employer failed to stop such conduct, they might file a class-action lawsuit against the company. Multiple victims can band together to seek justice for sexual harassment in their place of work, which provides compensation for harm and hopefully prevents future sexual harassment.
It is not acceptable for an employer to fire or otherwise retaliate against an employee who lodges a complaint or engages in other acts that the employer doesn’t like.
