RESTAURANT DEPOT SETTLEMENT
Jetro Holdings, LLC et al.
Docket No. 1881-cv-02674, Massachusetts Sup. Ct. (Middlesex)
Gardner & Rosenberg P.C. brought a class action against the owners of the Restaurant Depot stores in Massachusetts. In this action, the named plaintiff, a former employee of Restaurant Depot, claims that he and a class of Restaurant Depot employees were not paid properly for hours worked on Sundays and certain holidays. Restaurant Depot denies the allegations in their entirety and continues to assert that its pay practices have at all times complied with all legal requirements.
After engaging in a lengthy mediation with an experienced mediator, and several months of pre-mediation negotiations and informal discovery, including the review of over several million points of data, the Parties have reached a settlement of $1,025,000. The settlement was preliminarily approved by the Middlesex Superior Court.
In order to get paid under the settlement, class members need to submit a Claim Form to the Claims Administrator by email, fax, or mail, so that it is received by December 2, 2019.
