Wage and Hour Class Action Against Medical Co. Settled Before Complaint Even Filed

Our client, one of the top dental implant manufacturers in the United States, discovered through an audit that it faced potential class action claims arising from wage and hour laws. When a former disgruntled employee's lawyer started moving forward toward filing a lawsuit, CDF swiftly recommended early mediation, which enabled us to resolve all of the claims classwide through mediation for approximately $250,000.  We creatively argued on a rarely litigated exemption and negotiated a favorable settlement which was approved by the court a year later, insuring against any class liability.
