California requires employers to pay discharged employees immediately and pay employees who quit or resign within 72 hours. For employees who give 72 hours notice, the employer must pay the employee at the time of quitting.

In the lawsuit, employees who worked at Albertsons, Lucky Stores Inc., and Sav-on drugstores--two chains Albertons acquired in 1999--are seeking penalties of one day's pay for each day they allege that their paychecks were delayed, according to the newspaper.

The company declined to comment on the lawsuit when the newspaper contacted it.
