Baron & Budd, P.C. Announces Judge Grants Class Certification in Overtime Wage Violations Lawsuit against Managed Health Network, Inc

California federal judge conditionally certified a class of approximately 5,000 plaintiffs who worked at military bases around the nation for contractor Managed Health Network, Inc. According to the lawsuit, the workers claim that the company knowingly misclassified them as independent contractors when, under law, they should have been classified as employees. The lawsuit alleges that Managed Health Network misclassified workers to avoid paying overtime wages. Attorney Allen Vaught at Baron and Budd represents some of the affected workers. 'Many employees do not realize that they may be due significant back wages and damages when their employers misclassify them as independent contractors in an effort to side-step the federal overtime wage laws'. Under the Fair Labor and Standards Act (FLSA), a federal law that governs overtime wages, employees are lawfully entitled to overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours in a workweek. Independent contractors, on the other hand, do not have to be paid overtime pay. However, if the reality of the relationship is that the worker is actually an employee, the employer cannot get around paying overtime simply by attaching the label of independent contractor.

Shaunetta Eddings Settles Lawsuit with Health Net, Inc., Health Net Of California, Inc., Health Net Federal Services, LLC, Managed Health Network, Inc., Health Net of the Northeast, Inc. and Health Net Pharmaceutical Services Inc

The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California preliminarily approved a proposed settlement of Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state law wage claims against entities in the healthcare industry, finding that the proposed settlement was the result of arm's length, informed negotiations and was within the range of reasonableness. Shaunetta Eddings filed a class action complaint against Health Net, Inc., Health Net Of California, Inc., Health Net Federal Services, LLC, Managed Health Network, Inc., Health Net of the Northeast, Inc. and Health Net Pharmaceutical Services Inc. The complaint alleged that the defendants failed to compensate eddings and similarly situated employees for all time worked. The district court conditionally certified an FLSA opt-in class and an opt-out class for the California labor law claims. Thereafter, the defendants agreed to settle the claims against it. The parties' settlement agreement required the defendants to pay $600,000. Class members who submitted a claim would receive a cash payment, with a minimum payment of $25. Any funds remaining after the claims process would be distributed to the Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center. Eddings moved for preliminary approval of the proposed settlement. The district court ruled that approval was warranted. The parties completed discovery prior to settlement. Accordingly, they had sufficient information to assess the strengths of the case and the value of the settlement. There was no evidence that the settlement agreement was the product of fraud or collusion. Although Eddings believed that her claims had merit, there were inherent risks of going to trial. The defendants were committed to thoroughly litigating the case in the absence of settlement. The proposed settlement represented a balance between Eddings' claims and the defendants' defenses. The district court concluded that the settlement agreement appeared fair, adequate and reasonable in light of the claims that would be released by the class. It was appropriate to disseminate notice of the proposed settlement to putative class members.
