Actually, a lot of it I researched myself, before I even contacted Mark. I actually brought up what we would do in the case of them trying to bring up a waiver of class action. Most of what Mark and Jack was doing was clarifying questions that I asked and/or verifying statements and other legal cases/terms that I brought up.

That being to file a complaint with the NLRB siting the D.R. Horton ruling, right?

I'm not Jason, but if you've joined the lawsuit as a member of the class, your best bet is to contact the firm that is handling the case. Other than that it would be directly contacting Jason. He might not immediately read this thread, so sending him a Private message might grab his attention.

OR... hopefully Jason will read your post and comment directly to you via a Private Message or through a public message in this thread. Just be aware that there might be items of discussion that he might not care to air publically or has been cautioned not to air publicly; I know that was the case with my lawsuit.

There are 21 stores in Florida represented in this class action lawsuit. In my store alone only one past driver and myself joined even though I tried to convince several to do so. The ones I wanted to join, like myself, had several years in the store. Their excuses ranged from, "didn't want to mess with it", "didn't want to upset our GM", "probably not worth the effort for a few bucks". My GM seemed proud that only two came from his store (like I was a traitor), but he knows I am the one person there who will state my opinion about stuff and stand up. I would love to get a big check and personally flash it in their faces, but know that I probably won't be able to do that!

I am curious, when you say you joined do you mean that you are now a class representative or that the complaint was certified as a class/collective action and you've become a member of the class? I was unaware that the action had already been certified. Could you or jasonheuberger clarify?

Edit: I re-familiarized myself and notice that the action was conditionally certified, which is not the same thing as full certification.

Edit 2: Ok.. now that I am awake (I had been up for like 3 minutes before I read and replied in my last edit) I see that the conditional certification is for a collective action; which means that each employee must assert their desire to join the class. Instead of a class action where the employee would have to assert their desire to NOT be a member of the class.

I find it sad... so fucking sad.. that only 2 people from your location joined as class members of the collective action. It's sad because all those other, while not giving up their rights to seek their own remedy, are giving up on their (most likely) best chance to get some relief from the theft their employer had been committing against them.

Employee 1, "Hey, here's a valid legal complaint, it's could be worth 10s of thousands of dollars to you."

Employee 2, "No thanks, I don't want to piss of the manager."

Manager, "Ha HA, stupid employees are just too stupid. I saved my employer a lot of money. I'm such a good manager of the wage slaves."
