On September 24, 2013, a Notice of Settlement was sent to all eligible past and present Grande Cheese Company employees. Since then, 297 people have returned Consent Forms. Those who return their Consent Form will receive a larger settlement check than those who do not respond. Anyone who wants to receive a larger payment must make sure that their Consent Form is received by Nichols Kaster by October 24, 2013. The Final Approval hearing will be held on November 20, 2013.
Some people we have talked to have expressed concerns about being fired or otherwise retaliated against for sending in a Consent Form. Federal law prohibits Grande Cheese from firing or otherwise retaliating against anyone who sends in a Consent Form. If you are concerned about retaliation or feel like you have been retaliated against for sending in a Consent Form, please call us.
If you have any questions regarding this settlement or have misplaced your Consent Form, please contact the clerk on this case, Wade Underwood at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (877) 344-4628.
