NEW YORK, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The recent story out of Silicon Valley brought to light what can happen when employers attempt to join forces in an attempt to keep workers' salaries down. This spring, more than 64,000 software engineers joined a class-action lawsuit alleging a hiring conspiracy against big name Silicon Valley companies Apple, Google, Intel and Adobe claiming that they colluded to keep salaries down. The high-tech giants allegedly secretly agreed not to poach engineers from one another and communicated salary information in an effort to control employee wages. Pegasus Legal Funding, LLC (Pegasus) wants to help those who have been affected by an employer's unfair employment practices in cases where they have not received proper compensation.
According to Bob Tansey, Business Operations Manager at Pegasus Legal Funding, "Labor related practices have multiple effects on those targeted. Whether it is discrimination, retaliation by an employer or an employer not following federal or state law, plaintiffs find themselves at best, working under a hostile work environment and/or fighting an expensive legal battle typically while out of a job and without an income. This lawsuit sends a strong message to all those employers who are taking advantage of a weak economy to further profits."
Under this recent class-action lawsuit employees are seeking some $9 billion in lost wages; a sum that may seem exorbitant, but a sum that many are saying could be realistic considering the mounting evidence.
Pegasus is on-hand to help anyone who has suffered a wrongful termination, age discrimination, harassment and other forms of work related claims. Although employment cases can often be complicated, Pegasus is well versed in these types of cases. Over the years Pegasus has helped to secure millions of dollars in legal funding advances for victims and their families while they wait until their lawsuits are resolved. With this recent lawsuit in the public eye, Pegasus Legal Funding seeks to assist the hundreds of thousands of people who have been adversely affected by employment discrimination in the workplace every day. Pegasus is able to offer legal funding based on a review of the case and the clients' needs. Pegasus has the resources to help those people today when they need it.
