Albertson’s, Inc., Lucky Stores Inc. and Sav-on Drugs recently paid $18,500,000 to settle a class action that alleged the stores failed to pay some 200,000 employees who quit or were fired their remaining wages on their last day of work. Of the settlement, $15,000,000 went to the class members and $3,500,000 went to plaintiffs’ counsel in attorneys’ fees. This sizeable settlement serves as a powerful reminder of the need for employers to ensure compliance with all wage payment requirements.
