You could get a payment from a class action settlement if you worked for Thrifty Payless, Inc. dba Rite Aid in California as a non-exempt retail store associate (excluding pharmacists, pharmacy interns, and asset protection agents) at any time during the period from March 19, 2015 through February 3, 2022.

You can (and are encouraged to) access and review the entire Class Action and Private Attorneys General Act Settlement Agreement and Release, with all of the settlement terms to which you are bound, including the “Release of Claims” set forth in Paragraph 33 therein, found HERE.
The United States District Court authorized this notice. The notice is not a solicitation from a lawyer. This is not a lawsuit against you and you are not being sued. However, your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act.
Plaintiffs Kristal Nucci, Kelly Shaw, and Ana Goswick sued Thrifty Payless, Inc. and Rite Aid Corporation (hereinafter referred to collectively as “Rite Aid”), claiming that Rite Aid violated California law by purportedly requiring non-exempt associates in Rite Aid retail stores to wear and purchase uniforms. Plaintiffs allege that this resulted in Rite Aid failing to compensate associates for uniforms and resulted in violations of various California Labor Code sections (including, inter alia, unreimbursed business expenses, unpaid minimum wages, wage statement violations, failure to pay wages upon separation, and PAGA).
Rite Aid has denied these claims and the Court has not decided the merits of these claims.
To avoid litigation expenses, Rite Aid has agreed to settle these claims and this Notice is a summary of your rights and options under this Settlement—including the deadlines to exercise them.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act. Please read the information provided on this website and the settlement documents carefully.
