If you are a California resident who has worked for Student Transportation of America Inc., Santa Barbara Transportation Corp., A&B Bus Co., or Mission School Transportation Inc. as a non-exempt hourly employee between 2008 and 2015, you may be eligible for up to $700 cash from the California School Transportation Class Action Lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, the defendants allegedly failed to pay all wages including minimum wages and overtime wages, failed to provide proper meal periods and rest breaks, failed to provide legally compliant itemized wage statements, failed to maintain accurate records required by state law, failed to pay all wages upon termination, failed to pay wages for split shifts, failed to pay reporting time wages, and failed to reimburse employees for job-related expenses. If you are a class member, you should receive notice of this lawsuit in the near future. You will be automatically included and mailed a settlement award (worth anywhere from $2.14 to $781.77, with an average payout of approximately $273.68) if the agreement is approved. The transportation companies deny any wrongdoing but have agreed to settle the case in order to avoid a trial.
