Favorable Resolution at Early Mediation for “Bonus Overtime” Class Action

Payne & Fears LLP represented a Bay Area transaction processing service center in a “bonus overtime” class action where the plaintiff alleged miscalculation of the overtime rate in violation of the California Labor Code. Despite the challenge of a nondiscretionary bonus program that supported plaintiff’s theory of the case, our team reached a favorable resolution at early mediation that resulted in a settlement payment of 2% of plaintiff’s demand.
