EmpRes Healthcare Nursing Facilities Unpaid Wages Settlement Notes

  • Sharon Waldman, et al. v. EmpRes Healthcare Managment, et al.
  • Case No. 1100088580
  • Pending in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles

Plaintiffs Sharon Waldman, David Rauch, and Theresa Mascolina filed this California unpaid wages class action lawsuit alleging that EmpRes Healthcare and Evergreen Skilled Nursing Facilities failed to provide meal and rest breaks to its employees as required under California wage and hour laws. After ongoing, informal talks over a number of months and a mediation session on October 31, 2017, by retired judge, Honorable Robert Freedman in San Francisco, California, both sides reached a settlement.

Under the terms of the settlement, EmpRes Healthcare and Evergreen maintain they did nothing wrong and each facility contends it has complied with California Labor Code, and all applicable wage and hour laws. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the EmpRes Healthcare Nursing Facilities Unpaid Wages Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the settlement must do so by May 14, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement do not need to do anything. Note: If there are no appeals the settlement will be issued in two payments. The first payment will be approximately March 1, 2019 and the second payment approximately November 1, 2019.
