At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone who works on a production or assembly line and has been denied reasonable access to the bathroom.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether class action lawsuits can be filed against companies who only allow workers to use the bathroom at certain times or under certain circumstances – and not simply when they need to.
How Could a Class Action Help?
A class action lawsuit could force an employer to change its policies to ensure workers have reasonable access to the bathroom.
Can I Be Fired for Speaking Up?
Federal law strictly prohibits employers from firing or otherwise retaliating against workers simply because they’ve taken legal action or spoken up about their rights.
