Smith vs. Confidential Class Action Settled for 1.9M

SD&A is pleased to announce settlement of a major class action against a national transportation company. The allegations of the complaint, on file in Los Angeles Superior Court, reveal that the company requires over 5,000 employees in California to carry cell phones with GPS apps on them at all times and use them during work. The company provided (inadequate in number and technology) cell phones for its employees, but these phones were not reasonably usable during the day. Cost of cell phones to each employee was averaging nearly $100 per month. Under the terms of the settlement, all employees will receive reimbursement depending on levels of service. Preliminary approval of the class settlement is expected by December. 2015.
