Who is a Class Member
- Two different classes of plaintiff make up the class action law suit for Rite Aid managers. Both of them consist of current or former Rite Aid store managers who worked at a Rite Aid store during the appropriate time. The class action suit in New York covers anyone worked at a Rite Aid in the state of New York from October 30, 2002 through today. The FLSA class covers anyone who worked in any other state as a Rite Aid manager from March 31, 2007 through today.
- It’s impossible to say up front how much money each claimant will receive in the Rite Aid manager class suit, as it depends on two big factors: how many other people make a claim in the case, and how long the person way employed at Rite Aid. What’s important to note though, is that once the settlement funds are put aside, the court fees will be taken out first, then the lawyers fees (which usually don’t amount to more than 25% of the total amount), then the rest will be distributed among the people who make up the class action suit.
Proof of Purchase
- Since this law suit isn’t a consumer matter, there’s no issue of proof of purchase being necessary. The only proof that’s needed is the requested documents.
Rite Aid Store Manager Class Action Law Suit Notes
- Indergit v. Rite Aid Corp. and Rite Aid of New York Inc.
- Case No. 1:08-cv-09361
A class action lawsuit filed back on October 30, 2008, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, by Yatram Indergit on behalf of people who were store managers for Rite Aid alleges that Rite Aid did not pay their salaried store managers for any hours they worked over 40 in a single work week, violating the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York state law specifically (which explains why there are two classes).
Rite Aid denies that they did anything wrong in this matter, and argues that they did in fact comply with all local and federal labor laws. But, to avoid the time and expense that comes along with a court case, they have agreed to settle this matter out of court. That means all Rite Aid store managers from the applicable time are eligible to file to get their share of the money. Managers who worked for a longer time will be eligible for a larger share.
There is no online claim form for the class action suit against Rite Aid. All potential claimants will need to submit their claim forms either through mail, through email, through fax or through an overnight delivery service.
