California FedEx Employee Settlement Notes

  • Ortiz v. Genco I. Inc., et al.
  • Case Nos. 4:16-cv-04601-YGR and 4:17-cv-03692-YGR
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California

This case involves two class action lawsuits alleging that FedEx Supply Chain (formerly Genco I) violated both the Fair Credit Reporting Act and California labor laws.

Specifically, in the FCRA case, it is alleged that the pre-employment background case that Genco/FedEx requested did not have adequate pre-screening disclosures. In the California wage and hour class, plaintiffs accuse Genco/FedEx of failing to provide meal and rest breaks, pay for all hours worked, and provide accurate itemized wage statements.

FedEx denies the claims and contends it never violated any laws associated with the FCRA or California Labor Code. You can view the entire agreement on the FedEx Employee settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the settlements must do so by March 15, 2019.
