Zale Corporation Labor Code Violations for Non-Excempt Employees (California Only)
The Court approved a settlement comprising all current and former non-exempt employees of Zale who worked in California during the period July 3, 2009 through April 18, 2017
Class Members will receive a pro-rata share (“Individual Settlement Payment”) of the Net Common Fund based on the number of weeks worked and credited to that individual as a percentage of the total number of weeks worked credited to all Class Members. Zale has agreed to pay at least an aggregate amount of $504,000 to Class Members, on a claims-made basis. If the aggregate value of submitted claims is less than this amount, then the balance will escheat to the Industrial Relations Unpaid Wages Fund maintained by the California Department of Finance.
