Represented a transportation company and achieved a significant result in a wage and hour case brought as a collective action against the company. The plaintiffs in the case claimed that their working time had not been adequately tracked and that they were not completely relieved while on meal breaks. As a result, they claimed they worked additional overtime hours but were not adequately compensated for their time. After investigating the claims and obtaining multiple statements from other employees supporting the company's position, we filed a detailed opposition to plaintiffs' motion for certification as a collective action. Shortly after filing the response, the parties initiated settlement discussions, and the matter was resolved with the named plaintiffs on favorable terms to our client. The motion for collective action, which, if granted, could have expanded the action to include potentially hundreds of other current and former employees, was withdrawn. This result was particularly important because the plaintiffs were challenging fundamental aspects of the way that the company pays its employees, and we were able to keep the result localized and avoid the time, expense, and potential risk of greater damages associated with defending a broader collective suit.
