Furniture of America Unpaid Wages Settlement Notes
- Holguin v. Furniture of America, Inc.
- Case No. BC644038
- Pending in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles
Plaintiff Cesar Holguin initiated this class action lawsuit against Furniture of America, claiming the company violated state labor laws by failing to properly compensate employees for overtime, bonuses, and incentive pay wages. Additionally, Holguin alleges that he and other class members were denied proper meal and rest breaks, nor did they receive complete itemized wage statements.
Furniture of America denies it did anything wrong but agreed to settle to avoid additional litigation expenses and the inconvenience litigation would cause to its operations. The company has agreed to pay $290,000 to fully resolve the claims. This amount will provide for court costs, attorneys’ fees, administration expenses, and incentive awards. Once those have been deducted, the remainder (estimated to be $80,533.33) will go to settlement class members who do not opt-out.
Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Furniture of America Unpaid Wages Settlement website.
