California employees of several supermarkets and drug stores will receive their share of a $15 million settlement in a class-action wage suit.
According to settlement documents, approximately 200,000 employees of Albertsons, Lucky Stores and Sav-On Drugs, all owned by Supervalu Inc. of Minneapolis, will each receive up to $350 if their employment ended between Sept. 29, 1996, and Dec. 31, 2004.
The workers claimed the companies failed to pay final wages to terminated employees within California’s deadline. They also argued that employees who were not represented by a union did not receive pay for accrued vacation time upon termination, as required by California law.
The Food and Commercial Workers union Local 324, which represents grocery and pharmacy employees in Orange and Los Angeles counties, originally filed the lawsuit in 2000.
