Fisker Automotive, Inc. – $1.88 Million Settlement
On April 5, 2013, we filed suit against Fisker Automotive, Inc. in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, seeking to recover 60 days’ wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (“WARN”) and the California WARN Act. We contend Fisker ordered mass layoffs on or about April 5, 2013 without providing its employees with advance written notice. The case was certified as a class action and notice of the class action was mailed to the members of the class on September 5, 2013.
On November 26, 2013, we filed a WARN Act suit against Fisker Automotive, Inc in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware where Fisker filed for Bankruptcy.
On November 30, 2020, the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware granted final approval of a $1,887,771.09 class settlement, inclusive of attorneys’ fees, expenses, and the class representative’s service payment.
By December 31, 2020, settlement checks will be mailed to the members of the WARN class (net of class counsel’s fees, expenses, service payment and applicable payroll withholding) by Fisker’s Liquidating Trustee. Class members have 180 days from the date of issuance to deposit or cash their settlement checks. Uncashed checks will be donated to a nonprofit.
