Action Filed Against Rite Aid of New York and Rite Aid Corporation To Recover Overtime Compensation For Non-Exempt Hourly Positions
Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making employees aware that on June 12, 2020, a class action complaint was filed against Rite Aid of New York, Inc. and Rite Aid Corporation (collectively, “Rite Aid”) in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York to recover overtime compensation and other damages for non-exempt hourly positions (e.g., security guards, asset protection agents, cashiers, pharmacy technicians, stockers) who work or have worked for Rite Aid.
According to the class action complaint:
Defendants are liable under the FLSA [Fair Labor Standards Act] for, inter alia, failing to properly compensate Plaintiff and the FLSA Collective for their overtime hours worked.
Consistent with Defendants’ policies and patterns or practices, Plaintiff and the FLSA Collective were not paid the proper premium overtime compensation of 1.5 times their regular rates of pay, including earned bonus pay, for all hours worked beyond 40 per workweek.
The lawsuit also alleges claims on behalf of certain hourly workers who worked for Rite Aid in New York to remedy alleged violations of New York Labor Law.
