If you do not exclude yourself, you may object to the settlement. If the Settlement is approved, you will not be able to sue the Released Parties for the Released Claims as defined by the Stipulation of Settlement, available here, such as for claims relating to an employment background check when you applied for a position with Kforce Inc. or its related entities.
Any Settlement Class Member may appear at the Fairness Hearing to object to the proposed Settlement and/or to the application of Class Counsel for an award of attorneys’ fees and costs but only if the Settlement Class Member has first filed a written objection with the Clerk of Court, in accordance with the requirements set forth below by March 11, 2021. Any Settlement Class Member who does not provide a written objection in the manner described below shall be deemed to have waived any objection and shall forever be foreclosed from making any objection to the fairness, reasonableness, or adequacy of the Settlement or the award of any attorneys’ fees and costs. You can remain in the Settlement Class but file written objections to the Settlement. The Court will consider the objections in deciding whether to approve the Settlement.
To be heard at the Fairness Hearing, the Settlement Class Member must make any objection in writing and file it with the Court by March 11, 2021. The objection must also be mailed to each of the following, postmarked no later than March 11, 2021: (a) Class Counsel - Marc Edelman, Morgan & Morgan, 201 N. Franklin Street, Suite 700, Tampa, Florida 33602 and (b) Kforce’s Counsel – Jennifer Monrose Moore, Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C., 100 N. Tampa Street, Suite 3600, Tampa, Florida 33602.
An objection must: (a) attach documentation establishing, or provide information sufficient to allow Parties to confirm, that the objector is a Settlement Class Member; (b) include a statement of such Settlement Class Member’s specific objections; (c) state the grounds for objection, including that the objection is objecting to the Settlement, as well as identify any documents which such objector desires the Court to consider; and (d) if the Settlement Class Member is represented by an attorney, list all other cases in which the Class Member has filed an objection.
