John LaConte of Vail Daily is reporting that deadlines for the class-action lawsuit against Vail Resorts has been extended to May 20th.
Essentially, anybody looking to join or withdraw from the lawsuit will now have until May 20th. The original deadline was May 6th.
The lawsuit covers a wide range of violations that employees are alleging against Vail Resorts.
Here’s the summary from LaConte/Vail Daily:
“The attorneys representing the class of workers in the class-action lawsuit allege Vail Resorts is responsible for the failure to provide proper meal and/or rest periods; failure to reimburse expenses; unlawful deductions, rebates, or refunds from wages; failure to accurately record time or keep accurate records; failure to provide accurate employment records upon request; improper or inaccurate wage statements; failure to pay timely wages; fraudulent solicitation of employees; employment under conditions detrimental to employee health; unfair business practices; false or deceptive representation or advertisement; unfair competition and unjust enrichment under the laws of the states involved.”
Employees must have worked in these states and at these times in order to join the suit (LaConte/Vail Daily):
“The class members in the case include Vail Resorts workers in Wyoming who were employed by Vail Resorts or one of its affiliated companies any time between 2010 and 2021; workers in Indiana, Ohio, Washington, Minnesota, Vermont, New York, Michigan, Nevada, Wisconsin and Colorado who were employed any time between 2014 and 2021; workers in Missouri who were employed any time between 2015 and 2021; workers in California, Pennsylvania and Utah who were employed any time between 2016 and 2021; and workers in New Hampshire who were employed any time between 2017 and 2021.”
Vail Resorts has decided to settle this suit, and will pay $13.1 million with $4.36 million going to the attorneys. The final approval hearing is set for June 17th.
$13.1 million is just a drop in the bucket for Vail Resorts. They probably won’t even notice it’s missing from their over $1 billion in cash holdings.
