Case No. CV-15-01372-PHX-DLR

If you were a Holsum distributor in Arizona between July 20, 2014 and August 10, 2017, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.

 A Federal Court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

A settlement (“Settlement”) has been proposed in the class action lawsuit referenced above pending in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, Case No. CV-15-01372-PHX-DLR (“Action”).

  • Current and former Holsum Bakery, Inc. distributors have sued Flowers Foods, Inc. (Flowers Foods) and Holsum Bakery, Inc. (Holsum) alleging that the companies misclassified them as independent contractors and violated federal and Arizona wage-and-hour laws. Flowers Foods and Holsum deny those allegations but have agreed to settle the lawsuit.
  • If approved by the Court, the settlement will provide a fund of $1,170,286.33, to pay claims for those individuals who were or are distributors with Holsum in Arizona between July 20, 2014 and August 10, 2017 and who do not exclude themselves from the settlement (discussed further below).
