Supermarket Chains to Pay $22.4M to Janitors

Three supermarket chains have agreed to pay $22.4 million to more than 2,000 janitors to settle a lawsuit alleging that the chains knew that contractors the chains hired underpaid the janitors in violation of wage and hour law, the Associated Press reports.

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.
