Discount Tire Co. of Washington

Discount Tire Co. of Washington, Case No. 22-2-10618-8
Pierce County Superior Court

Welcome to the Settlement Website for the
Discount Tire Co. of Washington Class Action

A former employee of Discount Tire Co. of Washington, Inc., Allen Warren (“Plaintiff” or “Class Representative”), filed a lawsuit against Discount Tire Co. of Washington, Inc. (“Defendant”) on behalf of himself and a class of similarly situated employees. The lawsuit, Warren v. Discount Tire Co. of Washington, Case No. 22-2-10618-8 (the “Lawsuit” or the “Action”) is currently pending in Pierce County Superior Court. Plaintiff claimed in the lawsuit that Defendant failed to provide non-exempt, hourly employes with (1) compliant meal periods; (2) complaint rest periods; (3) compensation for missed and noncompliant meal and rest periods; and (4) issue accurate wage statements. Defendant denies each of these allegations and contends that it has always complied with all state and federal laws.

The parties to the lawsuit (the “Parties”) have reached a proposed Class Action Settlement. The settlement includes a total payment by Defendant of $2,230,000 (“Common Fund”). On April 19, 2024, the Court issued an order preliminarily approving the settlement and authorizing the Settlement Administrator Simpluris (“Settlement Administrator”) to issue Notice. If you received a Notice, Defendant’s records indicate you are eligible to participate in the settlement as a member of the Settlement Class. “Settlement Class Members” include “All hourly, non-exempt individuals employed by Defendant in Washington State.”

The Court has not decided whether the Plaintiff or Defendant should win this case. Instead, both sides agreed to this settlement. That way, they can avoid the uncertainty, risks, and expense of ongoing litigation, and Settlement Class members will get compensation now rather than years later—if ever. The Plaintiff and Class Counsel, attorneys for the Settlement Class members, agree the settlement is in the best interests of the Settlement Class members. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Defendant.

Please read the Notice carefully. Your legal rights are affected regardless of whether you act or do not act. If you do nothing, you will remain in the Settlement Class, receive a settlement payment, and will release certain claims against Defendant.
