THOMPSON v. TARGET



The Settlement


On May 15, 2017, the Court approved a $9 million settlement in this matter. If you received a Notice, it was because Target records indicate that you are a member of the Class.

You are included in the Settlement if you fall within the following definition:
All hourly Target team members who were employed at a Target store in California at any time during the applicable Covered Period who appear in Target’s time-punch records as having worked: (1) one or more shifts of more than five hours where the team member did not take a continuous 30-minute break starting during the first five hours of the shift; or (2) one or more shifts of more than ten hours where the team member did not take a continuous 30-minute meal break starting during the second five hours of a shift and had not given a second meal period waiver (in each case, a “Non-Compliant Meal Period”), excluding any individuals who already have resolved the claims asserted in the Action, whether by release or adjudication.
If you received a Notice, it includes a Class Member Settlement Information Sheet which provides the information on which your Settlement Share will be calculated and an estimate of your Settlement Share if all Class Members are participating and all payment amounts are awarded; your actual Settlement Share may be more or less. If the information in the Class Member Settlement Information Sheet (including your mailing address) is correct, you need not return the form.

If the information contained in the Class Member Settlement Information Sheet is not correct, please contact the Settlement Administrator as soon as possible and before July 14, 2017 at 1-855-793-1363

Case Background


In this case, Plaintiff Stacy Thompson claims that Target stole wages from its employees by maintaining a uniform policy of refusing to pay the extra hour of wages that California law requires when an employee works more than five hours without being relieved of duty for a meal break. Plaintiff also claims that Target has failed to provide appropriate seating for employees as required by the applicable California Wage Order.  The settlement resolves the meal break claims but litigation of the seating claims is ongoing.
