Rite Aid Settles Unpaid Wages Lawsuit for $20.9M
Rite Aid Corp. agreed to pay as much as $20.9 million to settle 15 lawsuits that claim the company did not pay overtime to some of its employees in violation of federal and state wage-and-hour laws.
The assistant managers and co-managers who filed the suits allege that they were misclassified and not paid overtime for when they worked past 40 hours a week, according to Dow Jones Newswires.
The current settlement compensates more than 6,000 former and current employees dating back to 2002, according to Dow Jones.
Rite Aid denies any wrongdoing and believes that its classification of the managers was correct.
