 Consent form to claim settlement fund>

         

      We are happy to announce that this case has been settled.  We will file the settlement documents this week for final approval by the court. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, virtual caseworkers who were paid commissions while working for EMSI from May 29, 2009 until December 24, 2012 are eligible to participate in the settlement fund.  To participate, such workers must sign and send a consent form (see link above) to Kennedy Hodges, LLP. Virtual caseworkers who do not sign the consent form will not receive any portion of the settlement fund.   

The settlement calls for EMSI to pay into a Total Settlement Fund $153.50 per week worked in the period above for every worker who joins the lawsuit.  For example, a worker who joins this lawsuit and who was employed from January 1, 2011 until December 24, 2012, would mean that EMSI would have to pay $15,810.50 into the Total Settlement Fund (103 weeks X $153.50).

A percentage of the Total Settlement Fund will be paid as attorneys’ fees.  The remaining amount of the Total Settlement Fund will then be distributed to all of the workers who joined the lawsuit proportionately according to the number of weeks each person worked.

DEADLINE TO CLAIM YOUR SHARE OF THE SETTLEMENT FUND IS DECEMBER 20, 2012
