Butterball LLC has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit brought by current and former employees of the company’s turkey-processing plants in Huntsville, AL and Ozark, Ark. The $425,000 settlement calls for the lead Plaintiffs in the lawsuit to receive $6,000 each and for 19 others in the action to receive $1,000 each. The settlement would resolve separate lawsuits filed in 2008 and 2010 that alleged the workers were not paid for time spent preparing for work. A hearing on the settlement, which requires court approval, is scheduled for Nov. 5 in U.S. District Court in Little Rock.
