SAN FRANCISCO — Polo Ralph Lauren Corp. has agreed to pay $4 million to settle a class-action suit by 6,700 former employees in California alleging unpaid, off-the-clock labor just as the case was starting its third week in U.S. District Court here.
The settlement is still to be filed, but both sides on Monday revealed in court that an agreement had been reached in which the company didn’t admit any liability, according to attorneys with the case. The class-action lawsuit by workers at Polo full-line and outlet stores in California between May 2002 and January 2009 originally sought $17 million in back wages and penalties.
