IMPORTANT NEWS- CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT ON BEHALF OF CURRENT AND FORMER CALIFORNIA AGENTS
IF YOU WORKED AS AN AGENT AT FARMERS IN CALIFORNIA AT ANY TIME BETWEEN NOVEMBER 2013 AND THE PRESENT YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR PAYMENT
The plaintiffs and Farmers in the pending L.A. state court case have reached a settlement that resolves all claims on behalf of the previously certified class of California agents. The plaintiffs alleged that Farmers misclassified the class of California agents as independent contractors under California law; thus, Farmers violated the California Labor Code, which requires employers to reimburse their employees for any expenses they incur to do their job, and California Unfair Competition Law. The settlement is designed to protect the agents’ classification as independent contractors and provide $75 million in monetary benefits along with very important contractual changes.
The Success of the Settlement will depend on current and former agents’ participation and support. By participating, your identity will NOT be made known to Farmers. And importantly, Farmers supports the Settlement.
It is very important that the agents’ attorneys reach as many former and current Farmers’ agents in the class to provide you information about the settlement and how you take advantage of its benefits. To that end, the lawyers for the agents will be hosting 5 informational meetings in California as follows:
|Jan 18, 2022||2pm-6pm||Register for Virtual Access|
|Jan 19, 2022||9am-12pm||Register for Virtual Access|
|Jan 20, 2022||1pm-5pm||Register for Virtual Access|
**Due to the omicron variant of Covid-19, the in-person informational meetings to discuss the case will be postponed until the end of February. More details will be shared as they become available.
If you would like to join one of the virtual meetings this week, please register above.
