First shift production workers at Northrop Grumman's El Segundo manufacturing facility will share in a $2 million settlement involving meal period violations dating from January 2001 to April 2004, pursuant to a settlement approved by a court-appointed referree this afternoon. The settlement resolves two cases pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Our law firm is one of two firms involved in the action. The primary claims alleged in both cases arose from non-compliant meal period scheduling at the facility. Approximately 900 current and former production workers will be eligible to share in the proceeds.
The settlement will require the company to mail claim forms to all eligible employees. Workers must submit these forms in order to be eligible to receive their payments under the settlement. More information about the lawsuit can be obtained at a website we set up for the employees. We will post copies of the claims forms and notices as soon as they are printed, which will be sometime in April.
