Class Actions

What is a class action?

A class action is a legal proceeding commenced by a representative plaintiff on behalf of themselves and a group or class of people who fall under the same definition of a proposed class. The size of the class depends on the number of people affected by the issue. Class actions permit a large number of people to have access to the legal system in circumstances that would be too complex or costly for one person to bring an action on their own.

VSLO’s experience with class actions

We have been involved in class actions related to circumstances arising out of current or former employment relationships.  Specifically, we act on behalf of pension plan members as a result of a conversion from a defined benefit to a defined contribution pension plan. We also represent retirees in relation to health benefits received following retirement.
