Windsor Mold Wage Claims

March 18, 2015

On or about July 22, 2013, two former employees of Windsor Mold brought this Action, in which they claimed Windsor violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, the Ohio Wage Fairness Act, the Ohio Prompt Pay Act, and Ohio common law by failing to pay certain employees for wages and overtime owed. Plaintiffs sought recovery of statutory damages, interest, attorneys’ fees and costs, and other relief.

 Generally, the lawsuit concerns Plaintiffs’ allegation that Windsor was legally obligated to compensate Press Operators and Decorators for a twenty-minute meeting prior to each shift and a twenty-minute break period for meals, but failed to pay for one of these twenty-minute periods. Windsor has denied and continues to deny any wrongdoing, and denies any and all liability and damages to anyone with respect to the alleged fact or causes of action asserted in the Action. Since the time of filing, Windsor has made some payments to employees and former employees voluntarily and some payments pursuant to a Department of Labor Settlement. To avoid the burden, expense, inconvenience, and uncertainty of the continued Action, however, the Parties have concluded it is in their best interests to resolve and settle the Action by entering into a settlement agreement.

 In December 2013 and April 2014, Windsor previously made checks available to Press Operators and Decorators for regular and overtime wages for shifts worked from July 22, 2010 through December 31, 2013. The payment made available in this settlement is in addition to the previous payments that you may have already received.

 On March 11, 2015, the Court certified a class for purposes of settlement and granted preliminary approval of the Settlement, subject to a fairness hearing, which will take place on August 20, 2015.

All people who worked at Precision or Autoplas from July 22, 2007 through December 31, 2013 are eligible to be part of the settlement, regardless of if they joined the class action or not.  All people will receive a proportionate amount of the settlement funds based on the time worked.
