Court Approves The Graves Firm's  $6.25 Million Dollar Settlement in Cubias v. Carl Karcher Enterprises



The Graves Firm represented plaintiffs in three different class action and Private Attorney General matters brought against Carl Karcher Enterprises, Inc. ("CKE") (a corporate entity associated with the Carl's Jr. brand). These lawsuits alleged that CKE misclassified its General Managers for a period of time, failing to pay them overtime or vacation pay; failing to reimburse General Managers for their cell phone bills, even though General Managers had to use their cell phones for work purposes; and failing to provide meal breaks to General Managers and Shift Leads. On September 8, 2021, the Santa Barbara Superior Court entered a judgment approving the settlement of this case in the amount of $6,250,000.
