Sabas Arredondo, et al. v. Delano Farms Company, et al., Case No. 1:09-cv-01247-MJSDistrict Court for the Eastern District of California
A settlement has been reached in a class action by agricultural grape workers who have worked for the aforementioned labor contractors (the “Contractors”) that employed them at Delano Farms. In the action, workers alleged that they performed unpaid, off-the-clock work, that they were not reimbursed for necessary tool expenses, and that they were not properly compensated for breaks. The Court has not decided whether Delano Farms or any of the Contractors has done anything wrong, and Defendants deny these allegations. The Court has preliminarily approved the settlement agreement (“Settlement”) and provisionally certified a Settlement Class for purposes of the Settlement only. This website provides information about the Settlement and how you can receive money from the Settlement, object to the Settlement, or exclude yourself from the Settlement.
