consideration of Plaintiff’s Motion for Approval of the FLSA
Settlement (ECF No. 16), and for the reasons set forth in the

EDUARDO C. ROBRENO,
As explained in the accompanying memorandum, the Court
will not approve the overbroad release provisions, because they
are neither fair nor reasonable in light of the FLSA’s purpose
and the Court’s approval role. In all other respects, the Court
finds that the proposed settlement agreement reflects a fair and
reasonable compromise of a bona fide dispute and does not
otherwise impermissibly frustrate the implementation of the FLSA
in the workplace. Counsel will be permitted to file an amended
settlement agreement for judicial review.
