About Whistleblower

A whistleblower, essentially, is an insider in an organization, who reports waste, fraud, abuse, corruption, dangers to public health and safety or such other wrongdoings taking place in the organization. For whistle-blowing, the whistleblowers have to face severe repercussions such as blacklisting, loss of livelihood, and unable to fulfill his/her social obligations that impacts his/her psychological well being. There are several legislations at place in India such as the Companies Act, 2013, the SEBI Regulations, and the Whistle Blowers Protection Act, 2014, which provide for safeguards against the victimization and blacklisting, while also providing for an adjudication mechanism for such complaints.

LegalPay provides funding and other necessary support to such whistleblowers, and ensure effective adjudication and protection of the whistleblowers.

CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS

Are you someone who has suffered injuries by a corporate giant? Is there a group of people who have suffered the same loss? You can file a class action lawsuit against such corporate entity and we are there to fund you!

About Class Action Lawsuits

A Class Action Lawsuit involves a large number of people, having suffered similar legal injuries by the same defendant(s), collectively bringing a claim to the respective courts through a representative. Class actions are a preferred form of suit, wherein the individual injuries that the parties to the suit might have suffered are relatively minor, but as a class, the value of their claims adds up to a significant amount. Various Indian legislations provide for an option to initiate class action suits, including the Companies Act, 2013, and the Consumer Protection Act, 2019, while the Civil Procedure Code, 1908, provides the procedural law for the same.

LegalPay understands that class action suits often remain as the last means to level the power differential between the plaintiffs (as a class) and the defendants, and therefore, intends to fund such viable claims to secure hassle-free access to justice.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT LAWSUIT

LegalPay supports you to come forward and seek justice if you have experienced sexual harassment at workplace. Sexual harassment suits are psychologically overwhelming and difficult for plaintiffs. LegalPay can help plaintiffs who are facing victimization and financial hardships to wait out the legal process by providing funds.

About Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can include unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013, provides for an extremely wide scope of the term ‘sexual harassment’, the crux of which is that any unwelcome acts or behavior of sexual or physical nature, against a woman in workplace, would be punishable
under the Act. The Act seeks to protect the right to work and live with dignity of the women, which constitutes a basic human right.

LegalPay inherently believes in equality of genders, and intends to promote the same by dedicating financial resources into such sexual harassment claims.

About Data Privacy Breaches

Right to privacy has been recognized as a fundamental right in India. Data privacy has been protected against unauthorized disclosures by private entities, corporations, and the government authorities, under the various provisions of the Informational Technology Act, 2000, which provide for both, civil as well as criminal sanctions. In order to further strengthen the data privacy regime in India, the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019, has been proposed before the Parliament. Therefore, there is a growing understanding amongst the governmental authorities and the people at large, that data privacy ought to be adequately safeguarded against unauthorized access or disclosures.

In consonance with this understanding, LegalPay provides funding for claims of the persons whose data privacy has been unduly breached in any form.
