IF YOU RECEIVED A "NOTICE OF PENDENCY OF CLASS ACTION, PROPOSED SETTLEMENT AND HEARING"
YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE CLASS AND MAY BE ENTITLED TO A RECOVERY ESTIMATED TO BE $400.00
An Arbitrator authorized this website and the notice that you received (“Class Notice”) because you have a right to know about a Proposed Settlement of this class action lawsuit and about your options before the Arbitrator decides whether to give “final approval” to the Proposed Settlement. This website and the notice explain the lawsuit, the Proposed Settlement, your legal rights, what benefits will be provided, and who will receive them.
This case is currently pending in Arbitration.
This litigation has been brought by Demis Espinoza (the “Class Representative”), on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, against Defendants, Managed Labor Solutions, LLC, and Peoplease, LLC (collectively “Defendants”), alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681, et seq. (the “FCRA”). In the Complaint, the Class Representative seeks certification of a nationwide class under the FCRA.
As alleged in the Arbitration Complaint, Defendants procured a consumer report on the Class Representative in connection with his application for employment with an employer. The Class Representative alleges that, in connection therewith, Defendants violated the FCRA by failing to provide pre-adverse action notice, including a copy of the consumer report, when using a consumer report, in whole or in part, to take an adverse employment action against the applicant or employee. (collectively, the “FCRA Claims”).
Defendants deny the FCRA violations alleged. Defendants have raised several meritorious defenses to the Class Representative’s allegations that Defendants violated the FCRA and a class wide resolution.
The Arbitrator will hold a final approval hearing to decide whether the Proposed Settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate and should be granted final approval. The Arbitrator will also consider whether to award attorney’s fees and other expenses to Class Counsel, whether to approve the general release consideration to the Class Representative, and whether to enter a final judgment and dismiss the lawsuit. If there are objections, the Arbitrator will consider them. You may attend and you may ask to speak.
If you timely return the attached Claim Form noting that you choose to receive a cash recovery, and the Arbitrator grants final approval of the Class Settlement, you will be sent a Settlement Payment in the form of a check anticipated to be in the amount of $400.00.
You have the right to do nothing. If you do nothing, you will remain part of the Class and you will not be able to start a lawsuit, continue with a lawsuit, or be part of any other lawsuit against Defendants about the claims in this case, ever again.
