Zumiez reached a tentative agreement to settle a class-action lawsuit in California for about $1.3 million. A former employee alleged that the company didn’t pay all overtime owed
to the worker, didn’t provide meal breaks as provided by California
law, didn’t provide employees with proper itemized pay stubs, and
didn’t pay fired employees their waiting time penalties as required by
California law.

The settlement, which is subject to court approval, will have an estimated impact on per-share earnings of about 3 cents, Zumiez said.

The class-action suit covers Zumiez employees, except store managers, who worked in California from March 5, 2004 to Sept. 13, 2009.
