Not much has been reported about this settlement, but Law360 reports that “Snyder’s-Lance agreed to pay $6 million to a collective of 300 distributors who urged a North Carolina court to sign off on the deal after accusing the company of misclassifying them as independent contractors.”
Snyder’s-Lance is a producer and supplier of snack food.

The company did not admit any wrongdoing but agreed to the settlement nonetheless.
