SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
COUNTY OF ORANGE
Case No. 30-2020-01175159-CU-OE-CXC
THE COURT GRANTED FINAL APPROVAL TO THE SETTLEMENT ON MARCH 14, 2023.
If you worked for Storm Water Inspection & Maintenance Services, Inc. (SWIMS) in California from November 17, 2016 through October 11, 2022, a class action and Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”) action lawsuit may affect your rights.
This lawsuit is about whether SWIMS provided meal periods, permitted rest breaks, paid overtime and minimum wages, paid all wages owed upon termination of employment, and provided proper wage statements, as required by applicable California laws.
SWIMS disputes the allegations in the lawsuit. SWIMS denies that they owe the monies claimed in the lawsuit.
As part of the Settlement with SWIMS, Plaintiff and SWIMS agreed to conditionally certify the Class with respect to all of the claims Plaintiff alleged against SWIMS as a class action, for settlement purposes only, and to move towards Court approval of the Settlement. The Court has not ruled on the merits of these claims, and the decision to certify the agreed upon Class for settlement purposes should not be viewed as a prediction that Plaintiff or the Class would ultimately prevail on the merits.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Please read the information provided on this website and the settlement documents carefully.
