$30,000,000 SETTLEMENT

In a series of several cases, temporary staffing employees alleged that their staffing agencies maintained vacation policies that denied them the right to earn and accrue vacation time as they worked.

As a result, the employees claimed that in violation of an Illinois law, the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act, they were not paid all of their owed vacation pay as part of their final wages. After significant litigation, these cases settled in what are believed to be among the largest employment class actions in Illinois history.
