Preliminary $11M Settlement Reached in AlliedBarton Employment Class Action Lawsuit


This is a settlement for the Employment lawsuit.

Santa Clara, CA: A preliminary $11 million settlement has been reached between AlliedBarton and a class of workers who filed an employment lawsuit against the security services company alleging it failed to provide meal and rest breaks, to pay adequate wages and did provide inaccurate wage statements, in violation of California labor law.

According to the terms of the settlement, each of the three named plaintiffs would receive $30,000 in service payments. The approximately 43,893 non-exempt hourly employees who worked for AlliedBarton in California from April 2004 through January 2015 would share the net settlement amount on a prorated basis, based on the number of weeks they worked, according to the proposed deal.

The lawsuit was filed by lead plaintiff Gregory Dynabursky in 2012 on behalf of thousands of security officers, alleging that AlliedBarton violated California labor and business laws by requiring guards to perform work duties during meal breaks. He also asserts that the workers had to sign a related on-duty meal period agreement.

The case is Gregory Dynabursky et al. v. AlliedBarton Security Services LP et al., case number 8:12-cv-02210, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

So I spoke to one guy name Luis beware of him he's reading off a screen and could careless about the lawsuit and your money. Called back just to speak with someone else and low and behold he kept answering the "800" number so I waited and called back a woman told me the checks were suppose to be mailed the end of Oct but for some reason they were not she didn't know why they just weren't. So no they're not in the mail we will be lucky to see it by next summer just saying. I've dealt with lawsuits before class action and never experienced this before

I despise when the justice system screws over the little guy (us workers) while all these lawyers take our (disproportionate) settlements and go golfing. Today's 11/1/16 and out of the 150 plus officers at my job site, not ONE got a settlement check. The 60 day threshold ended 10/12/16, a full three months (60 days) passed, and any inquiry by phone to these people is met with the old fashioned "The check is in the mail." To call about your settlement, the number is 800-378-2591
Looking over all this and doing the calculations, the settlement is a pittance compared to the years of lost meal breaks. Part of the settlement protects AUS from further lawsuits as part of the deal. I'll be making some phone calls and emails tomorrow to see if outside lawyers find this case interesting, along with possible state authorities (OSHA/Labor Board)

I spoke with a rep about a month ago and unfortunately I too misunderstood the check release date. Abs had until Aug to appeal the case if they did not then you would have a check issued 60 days after Aug 16 hope this helps. So the rep said he couldn't give a specific date but it's 60 days after Aug 16,16.
