Clients Albertson's, Inc.
Jones Day represented Albertson's in the class settlement administration phase of this litigation. The settlement resolved ten federal and state purported collective and class action lawsuits that were filed between March 1996 and October 1997 and were later consolidated in the United States District Court in Boise, Idaho. These lawsuits primarily alleged violations of federal and state wage and hour laws, including off-the-clock work allegations and allegations regarding certain salaried grocery managers' exempt status.
