Dewey & LeBoeuf - $4.5 Million Class Settlement

UPDATE 10/9/2014

In May 2012, Outten & Golden filed suit against Dewey & LeBoeuf, LLP ("Dewey") seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the WARN Act (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) Act and the New York WARN Act. We contend Dewey ordered mass layoffs on or about May 15, 2012 at its New York and Washington D.C. locations without providing its employees with advance written notice.

On August 18, 2014, the Court granted final approval of a class settlement of $4.5 million for the certified WARN class, inclusive of class counsel's fees and expenses. The settlement administrator mailed the settlement checks to the members of the class on October 3, 2014. Class members will have sixty (60) days from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or negotiate them. Uncashed checks will be donated to the Impact Fund, a not for profit organization which provides strategic leadership and support for litigation to achieve economic and social justice.
