Www.Butterball-Lawsuit.com – Butterball Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
You will be able to take part in the Butterball Class Action Lawsuit Settlement at the www.butterball-lawsuit.com website if you were an hourly employee at a Butterball plant since October 1, 2006 until now. You must have been a production employee in the Huntsville or Ozark Arkansas plants. This is for unpaid wages. In addition, if you are a part of the settlement, you would have received a notice in the mail which has detailed instructions on how you can take part in this.
If you do nothing right now, that means that you could be a class member and get compensation when the case is settled. However, if you do not wish to a part of this, you must request in writing that you want to opt out. However the deadline to do this has since passed and you will no longer be able to opt out. The deadline was on May 7, 2012.
You can take part in the Butterball Class Action Lawsuit Settlement even if you are not a U.S. citizen. You can take part regardless of your immigration status. Even undocumented workers will be able to get compensation. There is a law that protects you from retaliation if you take part in this lawsuit. So if you feel that you have been discriminated against, you can call the lawyers who are representing the employees. The phone number can be found on the settlement website at butterball-lawsuit.com.
If you decide to take part, you will not have to hire your own lawyers to help you. Attorneys have been provided by the court. It does not matter if you win or lose the case. You will not have to pay any attorney fees. The class counsel appointed by the Court will only be paid if the case reaches a settlement. So that means that the attorney fees will either be paid by Butterball or the fees will be paid from the settlement amount. If there is no settlement, then the attorneys just will not be paid. So do not worry about using their services as the services will be free to you no matter what happens.
If you are wondering what this lawsuit is about, the company did not pay some of the employees for the time that they spent putting on and taking off gear and equipment. Employees were also not paid for sanitizing and walking to the production floor and walking from the production floor. The workers who sued the company said that this violates the Arkansas Minimum Wage Act. This case has not been settled yet and the court has not yet decided who is right and who is at fault.
The employees who sued the company are Roxie Garner, Roy Garner, Jason Foster, Migues Anguiano Araujo, Christopher Smith and John Snarr. These are the Class Representatives. They are also known as Plaintiffs. They sued both the company and the company execuitve Gary R. Lenaghan. If you want to take part but are not sure if you are included in this case, then you can call the lawyers or even write to the lawyers. If you do nothing now, this means that you wish to be a part of the case. By doing nothing therefore, you forfeit all your legal rights in that you will not be able to sue the company later and you will also not be able to take part in other class action lawsuit settlements against the company. However, you also need to be aware that by doing nothing and hence choosing to be a part of this case does not guarantee that you will get compensation. If the case fails to settle, you still get nothing and you still will not be able to sue the company later. So waiting is not a guarantee in this case.
If you have questions, you should not call the Court. Usually the Court does not have the information that you need. If you have questions, make sure that you call the Class Counsel. They are the ones who can help you and answer all your questions. If you asking about money, you need to know that there is no money now. You will just have to wait until the case has been settled.
