United States District Court Judge Stephen Wilson granted final approval of the class action settlement against Kendall Floral Supply, LLC in which Stephen M. Garcia of the Garcia Law Firm served as lead counsel.

The lawsuit derived from Kendall Floral’s misclassification of approximately 307 current and former Kendall Floral merchandisers as independent contractor, exempt from the overtime requirements of wage and hour laws in the State of California.

As a result of the efforts of the class counsel, Kendall Floral class members making timely and lawful claim received an average of $4,500.00 in payment together with re-classification from independent contractors to employees which over a 5-year period benefit the class with an economic gain of an additional 1.5 million dollars beyond the settlement amount.
