What are Cy Pres awards?

If you are involved in a class action in Charleston, then you will quickly find that one of the main advantages to this litigation method is the support you have from fellow class members. However, that advantage can easily turn to the point of contention when it comes to distributing the settlement that comes from such an action. All too often, class members fall victim to the proverbial "Goldilocks Syndrome," claiming their portion of the award is too small while pointing out that those of others are too big. Given your stake in your class action, you will want to know the exact details of the settlement distribution. 

Detailing your right to overtime pay

You no doubt work very hard in performing the duties inherent with your career in Charleston. Such a well-developed work ethic likely comes not only from you wanting to support yourself and your family, but also as show of loyalty and gratitude to your employer. Yet does your employer offer the same love in return? Many come to us here at The Grubb Law Group concerned that they are asked to work long hours without being fairly compensated for it. Knowing if that truly is the case requires understanding what the law mandates in regards to overtime pay. 

Detailing the different types of warranties

When shopping for a new (or used) car in Charleston, one element that you do not want to overlook are its warranty protections. Often, the expense of the warranty will be included in the purchase price; other times it may be purchased separate. Having it in place can certainly offer added piece of mind beyond knowing that repair and maintenance costs on your new vehicle will be covered. As several of those that we here at The Grubb Law Group have worked with can attest to, it is your vehicle's warranty that secures your consumer protection. 

Qualifying as a class

People in Charleston may often hear stories on the local news or other media outlets detailing class action lawsuits. While many may understand that a class action is one that represents multiple plaintiffs, they may know nothing more than that. Yet such litigation can be quite common (indeed, according to the Stanford Law School, over $95 billion has been paid out in class action settlements since 1996). If and when one has a grievance, it may helpful to know that not only may he or she not be alone in that grievance, but that there is indeed a way to seek collective action against the party responsible for it.
