Global Discount Retailer Shuts Down National FLSA Collective Action Threat

Our client, an international discount retail chain, faced a nationwide putative collective action alleging violations of the FLSA and misclassification of store management employees. When CDF took the early deposition of the named plaintiff to evaluate her adequacy as a class representative, we successfully elicited critical admissions from her that undermined her FLSA misclassification claims.  This resulted in a voluntary dismissal of all collective action FLSA claims. CDF then promptly negotiated a nuisance value settlement of the named plaintiff's remaining individual state law claims, resolving this putative national class action in record time and at minimal cost to our client.
