Andrus Transportation Truck Drivers Settlement Notes
- Herman v. Andrus Transportation Services, Inc.
- Case No. 5:16-cv-2365 AG (DTBx)
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division
In September 2016, plaintiff Robert Herman filed this wage and hour class action lawsuit on behalf of all California-based Andrus Transportation Services truck drivers, claiming the company failed to pay them properly for non-driving tasks such as rest breaks, pre- and post-trip inspection time, loading/unloading time, cleaning, fueling, and paperwork time as mandated by California wage and hour laws. The Andrus Transportation Truck Drivers class action lawsuit also raises claims that the company did not provide complete and accurate wage statements.
Andrus Transportation Services denies all of the allegations and maintains that is has fully complied with California wage and hour laws, and provided its truck drivers with the required wages, provided timely rest breaks, kept accurate payroll records, and provided accurate itemized wage statements. ATS also contends that its truck drivers were properly compensated for all non-driving activities performed.
The Court granted preliminary approval of the settlement terms on February 1, 2018. The Settlement Agreement and other related documents are available on the Andrus Transportation Truck Drivers Settlement website.
