A&P Class Actions


Foster et al v. Food Emporium

We serve as co-lead plaintiffs' counsel with Lieff, Cabraser, Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, in a lawsuit against the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A&P) alleging that a class of hourly-rate employees within the New York Metropolitan area have not received proper compensation for all hours worked (off-the-clock) or overtime premium pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). A settlement has been approved by the court that provides for a total payment of $3,110,000.

Lamarca et al v. A&P

 On June 24, 2004, Outten & Golden LLP filed a second class action lawsuit against the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc., which operates A&P, The Food Emporium, and Waldbaum's. The plaintiffs, former employees of the supermarkets, charge that the chains fail to pay employees overtime wages and delete hours actually worked from time records in violation of New York labor law. The case covers all hourly full-time employees who were employed by A&P, The Food Emporium, and Waldbaum's in the State of New York from June 24, 1998, to the present.
