Amador v. The Brickman Group Settlement

Jonathan Amador v. The Brickman Group LTD. LLC
United States District Court, Middle District of Pennsylvania, No: 3:13-CV-02529

Welcome to the Amador v. The Brickman Group Settlement Website

It has been discovered that Dahl Administration (“Dahl”), the settlement administrator for the Amador v Brickman Group overtime case settlement, made an error in the calculation of your settlement award. The error resulted in class members receiving a check for an incorrect amount that was greater than they should have received pursuant to the terms of the settlement agreement and the Court’s Order approving the settlement. A stop payment has been placed on the incorrect check that Dahl mailed to you on November 20, 2017, and your corrected check is being shipped to you on November 29, 2017 by overnight delivery.

For any questions related to this issue please call Dahl’s dedicated hotline at 866-236-6192 which we have staffed with personnel to handle your calls related to this corrected check process. Please do not contact the attorneys for the parties - they have retained Dahl to handle this process.

If you have been charged any fees or out-of-pocket costs or expenses due to the cancelled check previously issued to you, you may request reimbursement by calling Dahl’s dedicated hotline, or by submitting your request online directly to Dahl through the following email address: or if you are unable to email, by submitting your request online directly to Dahl using the Check Fee Reimbursement link on the left of this page. You will not be required to submit proof of reimbursement of amounts less than $100.

You may have previously received notice about the overtime lawsuit called Amador v. The Brickman Group Ltd. LLC (the “Lawsuit”), or you filed a Consent to join and participate in this overtime lawsuit which claimed that The Brickman Group, LTD., LLC (“Defendant” or “Brickman”) paid its landscape/crew/irrigation Supervisors on the ‘fluctuating workweek” method of payment for hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek, while also paying non-discretionary bonuses and other types of pay to them, which Plaintiff alleged was in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and state law. If Brickman’s records show that you worked for Brickman between October 8, 2010 and June 8, 2014, you may be identified to participate in the settlement.
