Judge OKs $20.9M settlement for Rite Aid overtime allegations

By - Last modified: January 7, 2013 at 5:03 PM

A federal court judge today approved a $20.9 million settlement of allegations that Cumberland County-based Rite Aid Corp. and Eckerd Corp., doing business as Rite Aid, improperly designated assistant store managers and co-managers as exempt from overtime pay.

The approval resolves more than a dozen consolidated cases in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania for the purposes of settlement, according to a court filing.

Rite Aid said last year it would settle, with the agreement subject to court approval, and denied wrongdoing in the matter.
