Janet Torkelson filed suit on behalf of herself and other employees against a retail media chain. Janet alleged a claim of retaliatory discharge and violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act for minimum wage and overtime. In Fair Labor violation cases, multiple employees are allowed to join the case under a process called collective actions. This is different than the typical class action that many people have heard about. Numerous motions and responses were filed and the parties agreed to early mediation. The case was resolved at mediation on behalf of Janet Torkelson and all employees of a retail media chain who ultimately opted in to the collective action settlement.
