Www.HRBlockSettlement.Simpluris.com – H&R Block Seasonal Employee Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
The amount of the H&R Block Seasonal Employee Class Action Lawsuit Settlement is #35 million. This settlement which can be found at www.HRBlockSettlement.Simpluris.com is about the company not paying its seasonal employees in a timely manner. These are employees in California. Not paying them in a timely banner is a violation of the state law. This is also known as the Lemus et al. v. H&R Block Enterprises, LLC.
Apparently during the tax season from 2006 to 2011, the company did not pay the final hourly wages in time. The company also did not pay the end of season additional compensation in time. These employees were also not given accurate wage statements. Of course the company has said that it has not done anything wrong. Most companies who have class action lawsuits filed against them say this. This always amazes me. Why can’t they admit that they were wrong? Apparently they are always right. However agreeing to pay up to $35 million to settle this is an admission of guilt to me.
