Southwest Airlines $1 Million Class Action Settlement

Posted by Samuel A. Wong | Sep 05, 2019 | 0 Comments

California employee Timothy Mansfield sued the Dallas based company after his termination. Mansfield alleged that, upon his termination, he was not paid out immediately for wages that were owed to him. Rather, the airlines waited 4 days to pay him out. According to California Labor Law, Mansfield should have been paid out within 72 hours of his termination.

Mansfield also alleged that Southwest failed to provide accurate wage statements that outlined hourly wage rates and pay period dates. His allegations and claims were the foundations that built a class of 5,000 members.

The class was composed of former Southwest employees who worked for the company within the past 9 months from when the suit took place. Southwest, though initially denying any wrong doing, agreed to pay $1 million to the class members, with $5,000 awarded to Mansfield.
