A federal court in California has approved a settlement between 24 Hour Fitness and more than 850 claimants. The claimants in the suit were managers, sales counselors and trainers for the company who claimed they were misclassified as exempt employees and thus wrongfully denied overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. The value of the settlement is nearly $17.5 million. The claimants will receive about $20,000 each on average. U.S. District Judge Samuel Conti described the settlement as “fair, reasonable and adequate to all concerned.”

Number one firm

I really appreciate the law firm, they look into every detail, they review everything with you not just once but several times to make sure everything is correct. They are a very good law firm and I would highly recommend them. They'll always call you back when you call with questions. They're number one in my book.
