Nichols Kaster, PLLP

Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rachhana T. Srey is a partner at Nichols Kaster whose practice is primarily dedicated to national wage and hour complex class and collective action litigation. Since joining the firm as an attorney in 2004, Rachhana has been a zealous advocate for thousands of employees in recovering their unpaid wages under federal and various state wage and hour laws. She has had the opportunity to represent a wide variety of employees including nurses, home health aides, field service technicians and engineers, satellite and cable technicians, and hourly call center and processing plant workers.  In February 2015, after winning affirmative summary judgment on the company’s liability, Rachhana tried a collective action damages trial in the W.D. Texas, and secured a significant award for her clients who were improperly classified as exempt. This was Rachhana’s third wage and hour trial in four years.  One of the favorable verdicts from one of her wage and hour trials is up at the United States Supreme Court on the defendant’s cert petition.  In addition to her W&H class action practice, Rachhana is also currently litigating a 3600+ age discrimination class case venued in the EEOC.  

Rachhana’s exceptional litigation, trial advocacy and case management skills, hard work ethic, and dedication to her clients have earned her the respect of her clients and of her colleagues in the legal community.  Rachhana is very active in several organizations, including the National Employment Lawyers Association and the ABA Labor and Employment Law Group, taking leadership roles to help plan continuing education programs, and is often invited to speak nationally and locally on a wide range of topics including wage and hour litigation, class and collective action litigation strategies, discovery issues, recent developments in the law, and age and gender discrimination.
