Five Concurrent Class Actions Throughout CA Resolved for Telecom National Retailer

Our client, a national retailer in the telecommunications industry, faced five separately filed putative class actions by five separate sets of plaintiffs' counsel in five separate counties - Los Angeles, Alameda, Riverside, San Diego, and Monterey.  The cases alleged a variety of overlapping wage and hour violations, including meal and rest break violations, misclassification, off-the-clock work, failure to reimburse business expenses, miscalculation of the overtime pay rate, and minimum wage violations. CDF served as lead counsel in all five cases and strategically and efficiently resolved the claims.  The firmwide effort successfully consolidated three of the five cases, settled the fourth on an individual basis with the five named plaintiffs, and obtained dismissal of the class allegations for the fifth.  We also resolved all the class allegations in the coordinated class action matter, obtaining classwide releases from all but two of approximately 3,000 class members.
