Settlement Notes

  • Lisa T. v. bebe Stores Inc.
  • Case No. CIV RS 10-11823
  • Pending in the U.S. Superior Court for the State of California, County of Bernadino

Class members of the bebe unpaid overtime class action lawsuit contend that bebe has violated California labor laws in a number of ways. Preliminary issues stem from the company’s failure to pay minimum wage and overtime. Additional missteps include lack of rest breaks, timely wage payment, itemized wage statements, and other reimbursements. The initial plaintiffs filed a labor lawsuit seeking compensation for the unpaid wages and additional relief.

The defendants in the bebe unpaid overtime lawsuit are defined as the bebe Stores Inc. locations in the state of California. They will receive counsel from Michael Hoffman (Arena Hoffman LLP). bebe denies all allegations that they have violated labor laws, but have agreed to settle to avoid any litigation. The preliminary settlement came on August 23, 2017 with the final hearing scheduled for December 21, 2017. bebe will establish a settlement fund to the tune of $2,000,000 with member awards varying based on number of weeks worked. Estimated amounts were included with initial notice of the class action settlement.

All class members who file valid claims in the case will be represented by Melissa Grant, Jennifer Bagosy, and Suzy E. Lee of Capstone Law APC.
