IF YOU HAVE WORKED AS A CALIFORNIA-BASED FLIGHT ATTENDANT FOR VIRGIN AMERICA INC. (“VIRGIN”) AT ANY TIME SINCE MARCH 18, 2011, A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THE BELOW CAREFULLY.
A court has authorized a wage and hour lawsuit to proceed as a class action on behalf of all individuals who have worked as California-based flight attendants of Virgin at any time during the period from March 18, 2011 to April 6, 2017. The flight attendants bringing the case are seeking unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, and damages and penalties for missed meal and rest breaks and inaccurate wage statements. Virgin has denied and continues to deny the factual and legal allegations in the lawsuit and believes that it has valid defenses to Plaintiffs’ claims. As of today, there have been no findings of fault and no damages awarded. The Court has not yet made any findings of fault and has not awarded any damages. The case is still proceeding in court.
If you are a current or former flight attendant who has worked for Virgin at any time since March 18, 2011, your rights may be affected by this case. You can choose to do nothing and participate, or you can opt out of participating. As a Class Member, you will be bound by any judgment by the Court in this case, whether favorable or unfavorable. If you choose to opt out, you will not be affected by any ruling, judgment or settlement and will not be eligible for any monetary recovery, if such a recovery becomes available. If you choose to opt out of the lawsuit, you must do so by June 5, 2017.
If you received a notice that was dated August 24, 2018, you have until October 23, 2018 to opt out of the lawsuit.
