EXPLORE TALENT SETTLEMENT
The Alameda County Superior Court has granted preliminary approval to a class action settlement that would provide compensation to certain Explore Talent customers who signed up for service in the State of California between January 1, 2010 and April 1, 2013.
The lawsuit contends that the Explore Talent website is a “talent listing service.” Since January 2010, California law requires a talent listing service to post a $50,000 bond with the State, use certain contract language in membership agreements and maintain certain written records concerning the authenticity of job listings on its website. Explore Talent allegedly violated all of these requirements. Explore Talent denies it did anything wrong, but chose to settle for economic reasons.
As part of the settlement, Explore Talent has agreed to provide free membership for three months to eligible class members. The free membership will be available on June 20, 2017. To claim the free membership, call 702-553-2700. You are only entitled to this free membership if you were a California resident and a paid member anytime between January 1, 2010 and April 1, 2013.
In addition, Explore Talent is required as of May 22, 2017 to bring itself into full compliance with California law.
