Former Employee, Glass America Reach Settlement over Allegations of Fair Labor Standards’ Violations

Theresa Troutman, a former customer service representative for Glass America in Allegheny County, Pa., and Glass America have entered into “a confidential settlement agreement,” and the judge has dismissed her lawsuit alleging that she often worked through her lunch break and was not compensated for it.

Troutman is a resident of Westmoreland County, Pa. Her attorney filed the lawsuit against Glass America Midwest, in the U.S. Western District Court of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh division. Boyd Group Income Fund is parent company to Glass America, Gerber Collision & Glass and Hansen Collision and Glass, among others.

“The parties desired to fully and finally resolve their dispute without the expense of further litigation,” according to court documents filed with the Western U.S. District Court of Pennsylvania. “The parties entered into a confidential settlement agreement and release. The agreement is fair to all parties, reasonably resolves a bona fide disagreement between the parties with regard to the merits of plaintiff’s claims and demonstrates a good faith intention by the parties that the plaintiff’s claims be fully and finally resolved and not re-litigated in whole or in part in any point in the future.”

The parties jointly asked the judge to dismiss the complaint.

“[U]pon consideration of the parties’ Stipulation to Dismiss with Prejudice, in which the parties have represented to this court that they have resolved their dispute and entered into a settlement agreement and release, it is ordered, adjudged and decreed that pursuant to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, this action is dismissed with prejudice, each party to bear its/his own costs,” Judge Arthur Schwab ordered.
