    I applied for a position at Texas Road House back in 2010 and 2011 ,,twice asked for reason I hadn’t hear from them…was told job was filled and it yet they still had hiring sign out….i was 55 yrs old at time….now I know why….and it seems your site is also discriminating against seniors too…as I they didn’t give me a fracking discrimination claim number when they were discriminating against me….

    ADMIN – Hi Thomas,

    We are not associated to the class action administrator. We are simply an informational website. Think about us as the newspaper for class action settlements

  26. Sandy Johnson says:

    I applied in Arnold Mo when I was just turning 40. I had a lot of experience. My friend was hired at 30 years old and I was denied even with more experience than her. They were also hiring a lot of people at the time and there is no reason I should have been denied a job.

    ADMIN – Hi Sandy,

    If you are a class member contact class counsel to secure a pin and file a claim.

  27. MALISSA LANNOYE says:

    It is now after July 31, 2018 when will we learn if we qualified and if so how much we will receive and when?

    ADMIN – Hi Anthony,

    The administrator has not yet provided us with an update.

  29. Rrose says:

    I understand this may be a goofy question… but what is the methodology for determining a claimants equitable share of the settlement? Will all certified claimants receive the same amount or are there factors that EEOC rules subject claimants differentiation ‘reward’? and are there legal firms that were outsourced to assist EEOC and are paid a percentage of the final settlement?… if you are not allowed to respond that is fine, i was just curious….
    Thank you..

    ADMIN – Hi Rrose,

    This settlement will most likely be done pro-rata meaning every person with a valid claim will receive an equal share.

  30. Jacqueline Garza says:

    Are there any new updates?

    ADMIN – Hi Jaqueline,

    None at the moment

  31. Amanda A Knowles says:

  32. Donna cox says:

    Just got letter stating settlement amount. How long before I will hear about accepting it

    ADMIN – Hi Donna,

    Reach out to the class action administrator.

  33. Jacqueline Garza says:

    Received a letter today telling me how much they feel I’m eligible for and some other info. about it taking a little while longer to send me an acceptance document to sign and send back. Anyone else?

    • Chuck Hyma says:

      Sounds like the same letter I received. Something about waiting until responses from those who were denied are reviewed. Anybody have any info on what the deadline is for payments?

  34. Kristen says:

    We also received our estimate pay out amount, has anyone contacted the class action administrator? Because I will if no one else hasn’t.

    ADMIN – Hi Kristen,

    If you don’t mind my asking, what was your estimate?

    • Chuck Hyma says:

      I received the same thing please let me know what you find out. Looks like they are waiting until they review cases that were denied

    • Kristen says:

      About 4700.00…Has anyone heard when the payout will be? This is great bonus to pay off same small bills.

  35. Barry Maez says:

    @Admin.the estimate i got is $ 4.788.94//somethings not right.the suit was settled for 12 million/on my letter it says.the # of cliaments,far exceeded the 11 million awarded,,11 million ?

    ADMIN – Hi Barry,

    That is actually a pretty large settlement. What they are saying is that far more people than what they had estimated filed and had valid claims.

  36. Chuck says:

    The EEOC called me back today. All Appeals and finalizations will not be done and money will not be disbursed until April 2019.

  37. Joanne Hallmark says:
