Notice Re: Doyle et al. v. AT&T Settlement to AT&T employees in the Information Technology Department of AT&T

We have reached a settlement with AT&T that may allow you to make a claim for compensation. Recently claim forms were sent to employees of AT&T who were employed in the following capacities.

Senior Data Center Managers, Data Center Managers, IT Analysts (or analysts), Database Administrators and Database Analysts during the time period they were classified as exempt from July 15, 2004 to May 15, 2009 and/or Employees in the Information Technology Department of AT&T Services, while classified as non-exempt and who worked Alternative Workweek Schedules from July 15, 2004 through June 30, 2009

If you have not received a claim form but believe you should have, Please call: Josh Rogers the claims administrator for this case, at Rust Consulting, toll free at 866.591.7254 and find out if you should have received a claim form.

Or if a returned envelope was not included in your claim form package, please call the toll free number and ask for one. If there is any identifying information, such as address or name that is incorrect, please contact Mr. Rogers at Rust to correct this information.

If you believe the number of workweeks that you are being credited for is too low, please provide Rust and our offices with all information and supporting documentation to show that you are entitled to compensation for additional workweeks.

If you have any questions or concerns, or believe you should have received a claim form but were informed by Rust Consulting that you are not on the list, please contact our offices and ask to speak with:
Tom Falvey at 626 795-0204
Jim DeSimone or Michael Morrison at 310 396-0731

Additionally, if you were not employed in the specific capacities identified above but believe you are entitled to unpaid overtime, please contact us at the numbers listed above.

Please read below for additional information.


As you may be aware, on October 2, 2009, the Honorable John A. Houston, United States District Judge, granted our Motion for Preliminary Approval of our settlement in the case of Michael Doyle, et al, v. AT&T.

As a result of that approval, claim forms should be mailed out in the very near future to those individuals AT&T believes to be members of the class. If you are or believe that you should be a member of that class action, we urge you to watch the mail from a mailing from Rust Consulting, the claims administrator in this case. Some people ignore such mailings, thinking them to be advertising, or of little value. These forms have value. Payments will be made, some in the amounts of thousands of dollars to current and former employees. So please keep any eye out for this information.

Please also understand that there are strict time limits in regard to making a claim. We thus ask that you please pay strict attention to the instructions, if you are going to file a claim.

You should also be aware that we do not know the identities of all the people who AT&T considers to be class members in this case. Thus it might be to your advantage, if you think you should be a member of this class action, to contact our offices.

We thank you for your patience in regard to this case. Please understand that, even if you have received a previous payment in regard to either the class action of Huang v. AT&T, etc., or Shoff v. AT&T, etc., you may be entitled to payment under this case as well.

If you have any questions about this case, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thanks very much. We hope we can be of help to you.
