Court Approves $11 million Settlement In Discount Store Wage Theft Class Action

The case concerned the alleged failure to pay overtime and minimum wage to the discount store workers as well as claims for workplace retaliation. The action was filed in October 2014 and the Marlborough Law firm was appointed Co-Lead Class Counsel in 2017. The settlement was reached only a few days before the scheduled trial was about to start.

“We are pleased with the settlement. For many years, our clients worked long hours for low pay, but their perseverance in the litigation finally paid off,” said Christopher Marlborough, Principal Attorney of the Marlborough Law Firm.  “This is a tremendous result for the class and concludes more than six years of litigation in this case. I would like to thank the class representatives for their outstanding contribution to the case.”
