- Robinson v. Flowers Baking Co. of Lenexa, LLC, et al.
- Case No. 2:16-cv-02669-JWL-JPO
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas
In 2016, plaintiff Rodney Robinson filed this class action lawsuit alleging that Flowers Baking Company failed to properly pay certain employees. Specifically, Robinson claims that employees who were required to put on and take off protective clothing and gear were not paid for all hours worked, including overtime pay – in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and various state wage and hour laws.
Flowers Baking Company denies any wrongdoing and contends it has acted lawfully but agreed to the settlement to avoid further litigation costs. Under the terms of the settlement, Flowers Baking Company will pay $1.2 million to eligible Class members who submit valid and timely claim forms. It is estimated their are 872 eligible Class members.
The settlement will also cover attorneys’ fees in the amount of $400,000, litigation costs in the amount of $2,804.00, settlement administration costs, and plaintiff service awards not to exceed $10,000. These amounts have already been deducted from the $1.2 million settlement amount and will not be factored into individual settlement payouts.
