A federal magistrate judge in Florida has rejected a proposed settlement between Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurants Inc. and a former employee who claimed she and other hourly paid servers were denied overtime wages and forced to work off the clock in violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
Magistrate Judge Karla Spaulding of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida in Orlando denied without prejudice on June 5 a joint motion for approval of the settlement agreement, citing her concerns about sweeping releases as well as various non-monetary concessions by plaintiff Jessica Stuyvenberg.
