Wilma Foster, et al. v. Advantage Sales & Marketing, LLC dba Advantage Solutions

Advantage Sales & Marketing LLC dba Advantage Solutions and notice has been sent to California CDMRs and non-California CDMRs informing them of their rights and options under the settlement.  Plaintiffs Wilma Foster, Adam Thimons, and Kimberley Schmidt alleged that Advantage misclassified its Customer Development Managers-Retail (CDMR) as exempt employees and denied them overtime protections under federal and state law.  Plaintiffs are represented by GBDH and Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP.

A final fairness hearing will be held on March 12, 2020, where the judge will consider whether the settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate.
