I have been contacted by a previous employer telling me that another former employer has filed a class action lawsuit. My previous employer wanted to meet and have a discussion with me. This morning I received a message from my former employer and was told that they are going to pay me for my lunch not given, drive time and overtime not paid. She is only paying me this from 2009 on but I started with the company in 2008. I realize if I take this money, she is going to want me to sign away my rights to the class action lawsuit. However, she is telling me on my voicemail that they are going to pay me this money. Should I take the money or wait for the class action lawsuit? Can they not pay me the money if I opt to go with the class action lawsuit? Which would be more beneficial to me?
