McKenzie, et al. v. FedEx (Illegal Wage Statements)

A class action lawsuit alleged that FedEx failed to provide required information on wage statements issued to hourly employees, in violation of the California Labor Code. The plaintiffs, representing all current and former hourly employees employed by FedEx in California back to February 19, 2009 (estimated to number more than 14,000), alleged these omissions prevented them from determining whether they were paid correctly for all days and hours worked, and what pay period was covered by the paycheck. In October 2011, FedEx agreed to pay $8.25 million to settle the case. FedEx also agreed to change its wage statements to properly list all categories of information required by law, including the pay period beginning and ending dates, the number of regular and overtime hours worked, the applicable regular and overtime pay rates, and the total number of hours worked in the pay period.
