TO CLASS MEMBERS:
GoodLife mailed settlement cheques to eligible class members on or about August 15, 2018.
If you believe you are entitled to a settlement cheque and have not received one, please contact Tanya Atherfold-Desilva at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
A term of the settlement, which was approved by the Court, specifies that, in the event a cheque provided to a class member pursuant to the settlement remains uncashed six months after it was mailed, the cheque will be considered stale and the funds will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
In October 2016, a proposed class action for unpaid wages (including overtime) was filed against Goodlife Fitness Centres Inc. (“Goodlife”) on behalf of all current and former non-managerial employees of Goodlife who worked for Goodlife in its Ontario clubs since October 2014. In January 2017, the proposed class action was expanded to include Goodlife clubs across Canada.
The class action does not include personal trainers working for Goodlife in its clubs in the City of Toronto, Ontario at any time after July 7, 2016, or in the City of Ajax, Ontario at any time after October 31, 2016, at which time these personal trainers became represented by the Workers United Canada Council.
The Statement of Claim filed by the proposed representative Plaintiff alleges, among other things, that Goodlife violated employment standards legislation and its contracts of employment with Class Members by requiring, permitting and/or suffering Class Members to work hours above those scheduled, including hours both above and below the overtime threshold, but failing to appropriately compensate Class Members as required for all hours worked.
