Labor class actions big in California

This report covers the period from August 7 – 13, 2009, during which time a relatively large number of new class actions — 56 — were filed. Labor law class actions generally top this list by a wide margin, and this yet again proved to be true. During this reporting period, 33 class actions were filed alleging employment-related claims, representing 59% of the total number of new class actions filed. Only one other category met the 10% threshold: there were 11 new class actions alleging violations of California’s Unfair Competition Law (UCL), which includes false advertising claims (20%).
