Wow. I just read the entire complaint. It is one of the most well written I have seen yet.

This is the FIRST one that includes accusations of WILLFUL violations which DOUBLES the fines and the amounts awarded. :D 8-)

When I read it I was impressed with it too. It doesn't shoot for the moon like some of the complaints I have read against other franchise/companies.

What I find disappointing though is no reference on their website or elsewhere about the case on how to join. Quite frankly, they are being completely silent about the case so far except about your post. No news release, no page on their website, no NOTHING promoting the case besides what we have here.

Even their website proclaims "Attorneys for Employers", and elsewhere: "We place special emphasis on working with employers"...

I have little doubt they will defend you case adequately, but considering the posts on their website, and them NOT promoting this case, in any visible way, I hold no high hopes of your full legal success.

Please post something to convince me that my doubts are unjustified.

I'll keep this thread posted on any pertinent updates. But remember, these issues take more then a couple days to resolve. Hell the trial date (if there even is a trial) won't start until at least December of next year.

What are the odds of NOT having a 'non disclosure agreement' as part of the settlement? If you can't say what they settled on, why can't they just do whatever they did wrong again?

At this point Gregster I don't know. There is no discussion between the parties concerning a 'non disclosure agreement'. A 'non disclosure agreement' is something that would need to be negotiated. I'd like to say that there will not be a 'non disclosure agreement', but I cannot. I really wish I could, but I can't. If it were just me being affected, I'd like to think I would never agree to one, but I am not the only one affected.

I also have to make sure I don't present information that may affect the negotiations, so it can be slightly difficult to provide all the information I WANT to provide.

Trust me... They will INSIST on a NDA or no deal. It always goes that way.

I agree that so far that has been the norm for all the cases so far settled. But none of the cases have gone that direction, eh?
