Court grants preliminary approval to settlement in wage theft class action
September 21, 2017 – Alameda County Superior Court judge Brad Seligman today granted preliminary approval of the settlement in the firm’s wage theft class action against Digirad Corporation and its related entities. Led by firm partner Nick Carlin, the firm negotiated an exceptional settlement, the culmination of a year of hard fought litigation. By that settlement, Digirad has agreed to pay $1.3 million to approximately 70 current and former employees of the medical diagnostic services company. The settlement is a victory for the firm’s clients, who often worked 10-14 hour shifts while being deprived meal and rest breaks and premium pay. Judge Seligman has set a final approval hearing on the settlement for December 5, 2017. Notice to the class is pending.
