Federal Appeals Court Makes It Easier For Workers To Advance Class Claims

Fisher Phillips • May 07, 2018

The federal appeals court panel ruled that courts are permitted to certify class actions based on evidence that is not even admissible at trial. The May 3 ruling will make it easier for class claimants to advance their claims against employers, and should spur employers and their defense counsel to adjust their litigation strategy accordingly.
