ORDER APPROVING NOTICE AND METHOD OF
DISTRIBUTION TO POTENTIAL CLASS MEMBERS
This matter is before the Court on the parties' Joint Motion for Approval of Notice and
Method of Distribution to Potential Class Members. In support oftheir Joint Motion, the parties
have filed a stipulated notice and method of distribution. The proposed content and method of
distribution for that notice are consistent with that previously approved for use in other similar
wage actions before the federal courts of this state. See Haywood v. Barnes, 109 F.R.D. 568
(E.D.N.C. 1986). They also appear to be reasonably calculated to provide the best notice
practicable under the circumstances of this case.
The proposed Notice is both a neutral and comprehensive document that fairly apprises
the class members of (i) the pendency of the class action, (ii) the substance of the litigation, (iii)
the reasons for compromising the claims, (iv) the terms of the proposed settlement, and (v) the
opportunity to withdraw. The Notice also provides the class members with an opportunity to
obtain any necessary further information and apprises them of their right to object to the
settlement, the objection deadline, and the date of the hearing on this Court's final approval, if
any, of the Settlement Agreement.
The Court therefore formally approves the content of the Notice attached to the Joint
Motion, as well as the method of distribution for the Notices to class members set out in the Joint
Motion. The Notice shall be distributed to the members of the class certified by this Court
within thirty (30) days of the date of this Order.
This __1_l__ day of January 2017.
