Glasswerks to pay $1.3M to Settle California Unpaid Wages Lawsuit

A Los Angeles commercial glass manufacturer has agreed to pay $1.3 million to resolve a class action California unpaid wages lawsuit brought on behalf of workers who claim they were shorted on overtime and meal and rest breaks between 2012 and 2018. Most of the more than 1,000 current and former employees affected will pocket about $800, although some will collect as much as $2,400.

Fajardo v. Glasswerks, L.A. Inc. was settled through private mediation and neither counsel for the plaintiffs nor counsel for the defendants has offered comment, so the details are sparse. Nonetheless, it is clear that California courts continue to lead the way in protecting employees’ rights to their legally protected pay.
