Notice of Class Action Settlement

A settlement has been reached in Andersen v. Hein, a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit challenged the State's crediting of the value of time spent participating in a district assigned Work Experience Program (WEP) activity against an individual's Public Assistance obligation. The settlement is as to all matters except those regarding the crediting of the value of time spent participating in a district assigned WEP activity against the State's Interim Assistance Reimbursement from the federal Social Security Administration. The settlement of this action as described was approved, and so ordered by the Court, and was electronically filed on October 25, 2022.
