Supermarket Chains to Pay $22.4M to Janitors

The janitors worked at Albertsons Inc., Ralphs Grocery Co., and Safeway Inc.'s Vons supermarkets between 1994 and 2001.

The supermarket chains deny the allegations, contending they were not liable for any labor violations because the janitors were employed by a contractor.

The lawsuit alleged that some janitors often worked 7 days per week without receiving overtime pay, according to the news service. In addition, the lawsuit alleged that some janitors were paid less than the minimum wage.
