California trucking company S.S. Skikos has agreed to pay $700,000 to settle a proposed class action brought on behalf of nearly 200 truck drivers who accused the company of several federal and state labor law violations. The proposed settlement will resolve 187 S.S. Skikos Inc. employees’ claims that the Santa Rosa, Calif.-based company didn’t pay them for working overtime, deprived them of required meal and rest periods and in general didn’t pay them for all hours worked. The 187 employees, nonexempt truck drivers, are expected to receive a net $417,690 from the $700,000 settlement.

The settlement class encompasses truckers who worked for S.S. Skikos from April 27, 2011, through the date the California federal court gives the instant agreement preliminary approval. The Plaintiffs are represented by Carolyn Hunt Cottrell and Nicole Nellessen Coon of Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky & Wotkyns LLP and Karen C. Carrera and Virginia Villegas of Villegas Carrera LLP. The case is in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
