Settled and Closed – Young v. World Courier (II)

On July 13, 2016, Plaintiff filed a putative class action in Alameda County Superior Court in which Plaintiff purported to represent approximately 127 former hourly delivery drivers employed by WCG in the State of California at any time since July 13, 2012. Plaintiff’s Complaint contains claims for: failure to provide compliant wage statements, unpaid meal period premiums, unpaid rest period premiums, wages not timely paid during employment, violation of the Private Attorney General Act, and violation of California Business and Professions Code §§ 17200 et seq. Specifically, Plaintiff alleged that hourly-paid drivers were provided with wage statements that listed the name and address of a Professional Employer Organization (“PEO”) rather than WCG’s name and address, were not always provided with compliant meal breaks and were not always provided with compliant rest breaks. WCG and AmerisourceBergen deny all of the allegations being asserted in the Lawsuit.

The parties reached a settlement and the Court granted final approval of the settlement on August 25, 2017, and the case is now closed.
