Legal Question in Medical Leave in Virginia

Is there a minimum amount of plaintiffs required to file a class action lawsuit? Does an original lawsuit have to be filed, then expanded to a class action lawsuit. What are the most amount of plaintiffs allowed on a single lawsuit against the same defendant for the same claim? Thank you!!!

not (in my opinion) be based upon an employer's alleged violation(s) of its employees' rights under the Family & Medical Leave Act for which applicable remedies are already spelled out in the federal statute itself.
