Whitten v Rite Aid


Update - April 16, 2018 - Watch for our Letters!

We finally got a list of all the people Rite Aid thinks could be class members if our case is successful.

So we’ve started writing all of you in that group - over 700 of you - and we want to make sure you know whether Rite Aid has remembered to include your name, along with a correct address.

This actually happens.  People’s names get left out of such lists.  Why that happens doesn’t matter.  It just does, from time to time.

So please look for a letter from our firm in the next week or so.  It’s only a page long.  It will explain the case a little better.  But it’s our way of letting you know that we know that you might be part of the case.  When you get it, please call us and give us your telephone number, so we can call you, should that become necessary.

Look at it like this.  If you don’t get a letter, that means one of four things:

  1. The letter got lost in the mail or
  2. It was misaddressed (maybe you moved, or the number was mis-typed) or
  3. Your names wasn’t included or
  4. The dog ate it (thinking it was homework, maybe).


NO MATTER WHAT, if you believe you’re part of this case and you don’t get a letter from us, do us and yourself a favor!  Call us!  

We may not succeed in this case.  But if we do, the class members may well be entitled to back pay!

So call us at 818-547-5200 if that happen.  Or email us at tom@falveylaw.com for any other reason related to your employment or any issue you think involves violation of your rights as an individual.  Thanks very much.  We hope to hear from you.


Update - April 22, 2017 - Information regarding the Woodland Warehouse for Rite Aid

Do you know someone who worked there?

Or did you work there?  

If so, we’d be very grateful if you would call us as soon as you can.  Rite Aid is making some claims that we need to investigate.

So if you worked for the Woodland Warehouse (just east of Sacramento) in the past four years or so, your contacting us by email (tom@falveylaw.com) or calling as 818-547-5200 might be very helpful to this case and your fellow employees.

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.

We hope to hear from you soon.


Class Action filed January 11, 2017 on behalf of Rite Aid Warehouse Workers for Unpaid Wages and More!

Our firm has joined with the Law Offices of Alex Hartounian in filing a class-action lawsuit against Rite Aid Corporation, 660 Thrifty Payless and Thrifty Payless, Inc. (hereafter referred to as “Rite Aid” or “Defendants”).  It seeks to aid hourly employees of Rite Aid who are working, and/or who worked at its distribution warehouses in California at any time during the four years preceding the filing of the lawsuit on January 11, 2017.

The case was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, as Case No. BC 646398 (a copy of the complaint is attached). In this lawsuit, filed on behalf of himself and all others who worked for Defendants, Plaintiff Whitten contends that Rite Aid did not comply with California law for payment of wages and providing meal and rest breaks. He also contends that Defendants failed to provide accurate earnings statements, and, when required, failed to pay waiting time penalties.   If successful, a class action allows former and current employees to receive back wages and other damages and penalties that are or may be due them.

Rite Aid has not yet responded to the complaint filed. The court has not yet ruled on any of Plaintiff's allegations or determined whether the case is appropriate for class action status.

If you are or were an employee of Rite Aid in California since January, 2013, we would like to speak with you. Please contact us by either calling our office at 818-547-5200, by mailing us at 550 North Brand Blvd., Suite 1500, Glendale, CA 91203.  You may also email us at tom@falveylaw.com.

Help us out!  If you worked in one of Rite Aid's warehouses, give us a call!  Thanks very much.
