Srourian Law Firm Leads The Way In Attaining $325,000.00 Settlement For California Labor Code Violations

A California wage and hour employment class-action led by Srourian Law Firm lawsuit reached an important milestone yesterday when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle preliminarily approved a settlement of $325,000.00 for claims brought by former and current employees of the Delphine Restaurant, Living Room, and Living Station inside the W Hotel Hollywood. The lawsuit focused on the deprivation of overtime pay, meal periods, rest periods, and various other California Labor Code violations.

The California wage and hour lawsuit (Adam Clay v. Innovative Dining Group, LLC, et al., Los Angeles Superior Court Case Number BC598113, in Central District of Los Angeles) was filed in 2015 by named plaintiff Adam Clay. The settlement benefits all current and former hourly, non-exempt employees of Innovative Dining Group at the W Hotel in Hollywood who worked from October 21, 2011 through the date of settlement approval.

On February 23, 2017, Judge Berle granted preliminary approval of the $325,000.00 settlement. The next step in the process comes later in the year, when Judge Berle will hear arguments for a final fairness and approval hearing on June 26, 2017.
