Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 11, 2017
Class counsel announced today that, following final approval of a $1.9 million class action settlement brought by California class members against Life Alert Emergency Response, Inc., the settlement administrator has begun mailing settlement payments to qualified class members. The suit was filed on September 9, 2014, and alleged that Life Alert — a maker of emergency-response devices for senior citizens — misclassified its workers as independent contractors, causing unlawful pay shortages. The court granted final approval of the settlement on March 2, 2017.
The plaintiffs and settlement class are represented by class counsel James (JJ) Johnston and Kelly Y. Chen. The case is Barragan v. Life Alert Emergency Response Inc., Los Angeles Superior Court case number BC556127.
