Settlement in Wage and Hour Class Action Brought By Table Games Dealers At The Meadows Casino1 Comment
Stember Cohn & Davidson-Welling (“SCDW”) has reached a class action settlement with the Meadows Casino in Washington, PA, on behalf of table games dealers at the Casino in Yanchak v. Cannery Casino Resorts, LLC., a wage and hour case brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.
A former dealer sued The Meadows Casino in December 2013, claiming that he and other dealers had not been paid for work they were required to perform at the start and end of each shift. Under the settlement, which must be approved by the court, the Meadows will pay $350,000 to resolve the case.
The Meadows Casino and all of its related entities specifically denied wrongdoing of any kind and contended, among other things, that it complied with all applicable state, federal and local laws affecting the Class regarding unpaid wages, overtime, and penalties.
Once the court approves settlement, Class members will receive payment from the settlement fund. The amount of each payment will be based on the number of shifts the dealer worked during the period covered by the lawsuit. SCDW anticipates that payments should issue near the end of 2016.
SCDW attorneys Maureen Davidson-Welling, Jonathan K. Cohn, and John Stember represent the plaintiff and have requested that the court appointment them as class counsel.
