I work for the State and salaries have been frozen for 6 years. Can I file a lawsuit or start a class action lawsuit against the Governor and General Assembly? There are over 3000 State employees. My last salary increase was 2007.
1 Answer from Attorneys
You can sue, but you can't win unless you have a contract that entitles you to salary increases or the pay freeze violates a state law or constitutional provision. I doubt either of these things is true. Even if one of them is true, there might still be reasons why your suit would fail.
I'm sorry I can't be more encouraging.
