The parties participated in private mediation in May. They have agreed to continue their discussions.
Ontiveros filed an amended state class action lawsuit against Safelite Fulfillment, Safelite Group and Safelite Glass Corp. late last year in the U.S. District Court, Central District of California.
His attorney claims Safelite’s pay system is “a subterfuge for a piece-rate compensation system” and that the former technician as well as others similarly situated were not separately compensated for time spent working on tasks such as cleaning and maintaining tools, performing administrative tasks, attending mandatory meetings, or travelling to and from jobsites.
Safelite’s attorneys deny the allegations. They say Ontiveros does not offer enough facts to certify a class against the company.
