R&L Carrier Shared Services


Update April, 2020 -:  Checks Have Been Mailed Out!!!

That's right.  If you drove a truck for R+L Carriers in California from August, 2014 through October, 2019 and you have not received a check regarding your having done so, you MUST immediately contact the Third Party Administrator, Simpluris Class Action Administration. It's office is at 3194-C Airport Loop Drive, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. It's main office number is 714-824-8590.  

Maybe you moved and your check was mailed, but returned.  Maybe it was sent to an old address.  Maybe it was delivered to the wrong house!  

Remember!  Our office DOES NOT know who the class members are unless they contact us and it’s been verified by R&L.  So we know nothing about the mailing or even the amount checks at all.

Thanks again for helping us bring this case to this point.  If you have any questions about that case, or any other case involving unpaid wages or missed meal or rest breaks, etc., please feel free to contact us.  You can either send an mail to us at tom@falveylaw.com, or call us at 626-795-0205.

And if you've been let go from your job, wherever you work, maybe you would want to call us to talk about that.  Thanks very much.  We wish you well.


Update: March, 2020 - Court Grants Final Approval of Settlement of Case!

The court has given us final approval of our settlement of this case.  We are grateful for the resolution of this matter.

Checks are supposed to be going out soon!  But be careful!!!  Your notice and/or your check - if you're a class member - may be misaddressed or lost in the mail.  Or, R+L might have an old address and the check could go to where you used to live!  The checks will have to be cashed or deposited within 180 days of the mailing.

IF YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE CLASS (i.e., if you drove a truck for R+L Carriers from August, 2014 through October, 2019) and you have not received a Notice about this case, you MUST immediately contact the Third Party Administrator, Simpluris Class Action Administration. Simpluris Headquarters are at 3194-C Airport Loop Drive, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. It's main office number is 714-824-8590.  

ALSO, IF YOU KNOW OF ANYONE WHO MIGHT BE IN THE CLASS, we urge you to have them contact us. Similarly, if you have any questions about the Notice which may have come to you, please contact us or Simpluris.    

Even if you've been fired or let go, you might be entitled to this money.

ALSO, if you've been fired in the past month or so, because of COVID-19, and you worked at R+L or somewhere other than R+L, feel free to call us.  You may be entitled to unpaid wages and benefits of which you're not aware.

You can always call us at 626-795-0205 or you can email us at tom@falveylaw.com.

Miranda and Maya v R&L Carrier Shared Services - NEW Class Action Lawsuit Filed August, 2018!

We have filed ANOTHER class-action lawsuit against R&L Shares Services, LLC, this time by Hector Miranda and Rene Maya, Jr. ("Plaintiffs") against R&L Carriers Shared Services, LLC (hereafter, referred to as “Defendant” or "R&L").

This case is on behalf of all CITY DRIVERS, PICK-UP AND DELIVERY DRIVERS, and LINEHAUL DRIVERS who worked at any of Defendants' locations in California at any time FROM DECEMBER 24, 2013 TO EARLY 2017. The case was filed in United States District Court, Northern District of California, Case No. 4:18-CV-04940 (a copy of the complaint is attached).

In this lawsuit, filed on behalf of those class representatives and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs contend that R&l did not comply with the requirements under California law for payment of wages. If successful, a class action allows former and current employees to receive back wages that are owed to them.

The court has not yet ruled on any of Plaintiff's allegations or determined whether the case is appropriate for class action status.

If you worked for R&L as a CITY DRIVER, PICK-UP AND DELIVERY DRIVER, and/or LINEHAUL DRIVER  in the State of California since December, 2014, we would like to speak with you. Please contact us by either calling 626.795.0205, by mailing us at 550 North Brand Blvd., Suite 1500, Glendale, California 91203, or by emailing us at tom@falveylaw.com.

We would be especially interested in being able to review earnings statements, paystubs, schedules, timesheets, timecards, job descriptions, mileage statements, and any other documents you feel might assist us in our goal. Perhaps you have documents discussing working during meal or rest breaks, or at home. Maybe you have records of time worked off the clock, for instance, before or after you arrived at your first appointment, and which your terminal, district or regional managers were aware.

We thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide and look forward to hearing from you.
