Court okays class settlement for Burritt Room employees

August 6, 2019 – San Francisco Superior Court Judge Teri L. Jackson today granted the firm’s motion for preliminary approval of a $1 million class action settlement made on behalf of approximately 140 former workers at Burritt Room + Tavern, a popular San Francisco bar/restaurant located in the Mystic Hotel by Charlie Palmer, which was sold in 2018. The case arose in connection with that restaurant’s employment policies and practices, which the employees alleged were in violation of California’s Labor Code. The court conditionally appointed the firm settlement class counsel, and set a hearing for final approval of the settlement for November 14th this year. Notice to the class is pending.
