We are not asking you to join as a representative (named) plaintiff in our existing class action lawsuits, we are instead looking to have you register with our confidential employee database that is meant to assist us in strengthening the overall case and optimizing the recovery that you are entitled to. Naturally, there are circumstances when we might identify information specific to yourself that might identify a distinct legal avenue to pursue additional compensation for yourself and others, which may not be covered in the current form of class proceedings. In those circumstances, we will need to address this specifically with yourself and ascertain whether or not you wish to be pursuing this additional legal recourse.

Also, the lawyers for the defendant employer corporations will all too often look to reduce the size of the class, such that they might be seeking to effectively excluding yourself from the class. However, if we have information from yourself, while keeping your personal identity confidential, we would be better positioned to keep you included within the class and maintain your personal confidentiality.

Yet, absent our identifying a new and distinct legal claim against the defendants, the purpose of joining is to enable us to make sure you are fairly compensated from this class proceeding, such that we need to hear from you. If we don’t hear from you, we will be forced to rely upon information obtained from the defendant employer corporations and certain third-party providers that may be incomplete or might overlook critical information that is specific to yourself.

Should you want to register on the confidential employee database related to the class action pertaining to your employer, simply contact ourselves to register and we can proceed with accurate information and contact yourself when necessary. We will be able to keep you in the loop and keep you informed of new developments including any potential settlement. We also need your support to help win the case. The more former and current employees of the defendant employer corporations who register, the stronger our court case can become.

REGISTERING ON OUR CONFIDENTIAL EMPLOYEE DATABASE DOES NOT EXPOSE YOU TO ADDED RISK.

Registering costs you nothing. It’s free. You will not pay any legal fees as a class member. It’s confidential. Your name and information that you  will remain completely confidential. Naturally, if you seek individualized legal representation and/or have distinct claims against the defendant(s), there are additional considerations that must be accounted for and we must agree to the specific terms of that engagement and our legal representation on those particular matters.

For class members, other than the representative plaintiff(s) and certain other individual class members who raise additional individual claims against the defendant(s) within the forum of the court case, the class proceeding is meant to keep the class members' involvement confidential from the defendants (employer). As such, the defendants (employer) is not allowed to be informed as to who is a participant in the class and who has opted out and how much any individual class member is paid out. The defendants' lawyers will know this information; however, they are legally obligated not to reveal this to their client (the employer), as they can be punished by the Court for disclosing such information. So, by way of an example, the vice-president of a defendant corporation may choose not to opt-out and the class proceedings might determine that she is entitled to $20,000 in underpayments. The fact that she chose not to opt-out of the class proceedings and the amount of money that she received would not be revealed to the defendant corporation, even as she continues to work for the company.

To register simply contact lawyer Christopher Neufeld at Neufeld Legal P.C. All calls are confidential.

Do not rely upon the information provided on this website as legal advice in respect of your individual situation nor use it as substitute for individual legal advice.

The information collected about potential class members will assist counsel in prosecuting the class action and assessing what damages were suffered by the class as a whole, as well as potentially identifying other legal aspects / claims that were not previously considered. Providing the information requested does not make you the client of Neufeld Legal PC. The court will ultimately decide who will be included as a class member.
