Need help deciding whether I should join this lawsuit or not. My former employer is being sued for failure to compensate according to CA law (pay overtime, meal and rest breaks, ect). I worked for the company for four years and they account for a huge chunk of my recent work experience and references. I left on good terms 10 months ago to persue another career and I'm now applying for jobs with other employers. I could provide helpful testimony and documentation to the law firm suing them, but what's in it for me? If I'm named as a class representative, wouldn't I have to leave that employer off my resume and reference list? Would future employers find out I sued a previous employer and decline to hire me because of that? What's the best v. worst outcome in these cases?
