Security Guards Seek To Settle 8-Yr Wage Suit For $21M
Law360, San Francisco (June 26, 2017, 4:44 PM EDT) -- A certified class of U.S. Security Associates Inc. security guards asked a California federal court Friday to preliminarily approve a $21 million deal that would resolve allegations the company failed to give guards meal breaks and violated multiple labor statutes and end eight years of litigation.
Under the deal, class attorneys indicated that they would likely request the maximum 33 percent of the settlement fund to account for more than 7,000 hours of time they spent over the past eight years representing the security guards. Meanwhile, the 17,000 possible class members would receive $1,235 on average before all deductions.
