Labor & Employment Class Actions


Waller is committed to having a positive impact on our clients' businesses. Representing employers in class action litigation, our attorneys are working to ensure a fair marketplace for employees and employers alike. Across a variety of industries, we have experience handling a broad spectrum of complex, multi-party matters, including:

  • A putative class action alleging company-wide hostile work environment based on race and systemic disparate treatment in hiring, promotion, training and discipline
  • The largest employment discrimination case filed in the state of Tennessee, where ninety-two current and former employees sued the company alleging multiple claims of race discrimination, racial harassment and retaliation in the company's Union City, Tennessee manufacturing facility
  • Defense of multiple charges of discrimination by African-American  employees alleging that they have been repeatedly subjected to hostile treatment and disparate treatment based on race alleging discrimination, failure to promote and discipline
  • A nationwide FLSA collective action with companion state law class claims
  • A seven plaintiff lawsuit challenging the drug screening practices of a transportation industry supplier of glass and window systems
  • A collective action brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act, in which Waller successfully defeated the plaintiffs' attempt for an "opt-in" plaintiff class and foreclosing the potential to involve thousands of managers, assistant managers and service managers at retail tire sales locations throughout the country
  • An ERISA action in which the Plaintiff alleges that he and a purported class of individuals suffering from Autism have been wrongfully denied coverage for "Applied Behavioral Analysis" treatment
  • Employment litigation involving 15 separate lawsuits in state and federal court alleging gender
  • Discrimination, sexual harassment, age discrimination, violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, constructive discharge, and other wrongful termination allegations
