Schneider National agrees to lawsuit settlement

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Green Bay trucking firm has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by its mechanics in California.

Schneider National will pay a total of $2 million to around 200 present and former employees who claimed they were shortchanged for overtime, and breaks for meals and rest.

Another $1.5 million would go to the plaintiffs’ attorneys – as well administrative and payroll costs due to the settlement.

A federal judge must still approve the deal. If that happens, each employee would get $9,000 to $10,000 each.

Schneider National was able to deny liability and wrongdoing as part of the settlement.
