A class action lawsuit against Defendant Lumber Liquidators, Inc., (“Lumber Liquidators”) has been preliminarily approved for settlement. In the lawsuit, Plaintiff alleges that with respect to Store Managers and Store Managers in Training in California, Lumber Liquidators misclassified them as salaried/overtime exempt employees. Plaintiff alleges that Lumber Liquidators failed to pay all wages owed, including overtime for time worked in excess of 8 hours in a day and/or 40 hours in a week, failed to provide accurate itemized wage statements, failed to provide meal and rest breaks, failed to maintain records, failed to reimburse for business expenses, and failed to timely pay wages owed at the time of separation.

The Court has not made any finding of liability as to Lumber Liquidators, and the Company contends that it complies with applicable law.

Defendants deny all allegations of wrongdoing, and no court or entity has made any judgment or other determination of any wrongdoing or that the law has been violated. By entering into the Settlement, Defendant is not admitting that it did anything wrong.
