In Kullar v. Footlocker, a California court of appeal approved a settlement of a class action lawsuit for almost $1.3 million covering about 18,000 employees arising out of, among other claims, an employer requirement that the employees wear athletic shoes to work that had to be purchased at the employee's expense. The plaintiffs argued that the shoes were part of an employer-required "uniform." If part of a uniform, the shoes costs would need to be reimbursed by the employer. Footlocker had urged that the shoes were common street shoes and not part of a uniform. The court ruled that the settlement, albeit not a 100% recovery for the employees, was a fair settlement under the circumstances.
