CVS Employees Win $3M California Labor Law Class Action Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the California Employment lawsuit.

Santa Clara, CA: A $3 million settlement has been agreed between CVS Pharmacy Inc. and store employees who allege they were provided inaccurate itemized wage statements in violation of California labor law.

Brought by Willie Brown, in September 2015, the complaint claimed the health care retailer failed to list the correct amount of total hours worked by its employees in their wage statements by incorrectly including shift differential pay hours. The suit alleged CVS violated California Labor Code.

The settlement, which is awaiting court approval, will cover some 7,784 potential class members who, as store employees, received a shift differential pay on a wage statement between Sept. 29, 2014, and Sept. 1, 2016.

CVS, while denying any wrongdoing, has agreed to change its policy around itemized wage statements to reflect only the regular number of total hours worked.

The case is Willie Brown v. CVS et al., case number 2:15-cv-07631 in the U.S. District Court of the Central District of California.
