NOTICE OF SETTLEMENT OF COLLECTIVE ACTION LAWSUIT
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF INDIANA
SOUTH BEND DIVISION
Cause No. 3:20-CV-1004-DRL-MGG
You received a Notice of Settlement of Collective Action Lawsuit (“Notice”) because you previously opted into this collective action, and you are eligible to participate in the Settlement of that lawsuit. A federal District Court has approved the Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
The Notice you received early this year provided details as to the relevant time period and asserted claims. Defendant continues to deny all allegations of wrongdoing and asserts that you were properly paid in accordance with all applicable laws, and the Court has not decided in favor of either Party. The Parties have entered into this Settlement solely with the intention of avoiding further litigation.
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT:
|RETURN THE CLAIM FORM AND RELEASE||By returning a properly completed Claim Form and Release, you agree to participate in the Settlement and will receive a Settlement payment. To participate in the Settlement, you must return a properly completed Claim Form and Release by July 31, 2023. If you participate in the Settlement, you agree to be bound by the terms of the Settlement, including the release of your wage and hour claims.|
|DO NOT RETURN THE CLAIM FORM AND RELEASE||If you do not wish to participate in the Settlement, you should not return the Claim Form and Release. If you do not return a properly completed Claim Form and Release by July 31, 2023, you will not receive a Settlement payment, you will not be bound by the terms of the Settlement, and you will have the right to bring your own lawsuit, with an attorney of your choosing, at your own expense. If you choose not to participate in this Settlement and wish to file your own lawsuit, you should act promptly because your claim is subject to a statute of limitations.|
