PRECIADO VS SIMPLE SIMON'S BAKERY & BISTRO

The notice does not inform class members of the amount of the PAGA settlement and does not explain who are aggrieved employees and that aggrieved employees will receive a PAGA payment even if the person opts out of the class action settlement. The notice suggests that the PAGA settlement will remain even if the court denies final approval of the class action settlement. This is inconsistent with the settlement agreement and the proposed order. ANY REQUEST FOR ORAL ARGUMENT SHALL BE HEARD AT 9AM

Los Angeles Cellular Telephone Co. (2004) 118 Cal.App.4th 123, 127-128.)
