SAN FRANCISCO – A settlement in a lawsuit against US Bank would grant relief to over 2,000 workers who were refused adequate seating and breaks by the big bank.

A federal district court in San Francisco last month granted preliminary approval of a settlement for in-store bankers who worked at U.S. Bank’s in-store locations between September 2010 and February 2014. The in-store bankers alleged that U.S. Bank refused to provide them with suitable seating, even though the nature of their work would have allowed the use of seats. Plaintiffs also alleged that, when only two in-store bankers were at work, that U.S. Bank unlawfully restricted their rest periods by refusing them permission to leave the store.

The settlement provides for a $1.9 million settlement fund. If the court grants final approval of the settlement, class members will receive a pro rata portion of the settlement fund based on the number of weeks they worked for U.S. Bank in a class position during the class period. The final approval hearing is scheduled for June 12, 2014 at 1:30 pm. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
