This wage theft class and collective action is brought on behalf of employees of Kroger in Virginia and West Virginia. The lawsuit alleges that in 2022, Kroger, which owns and operates grocery stores throughout Virginia and West Virginia, implemented a new payroll system called MyTime, that has resulted in a litany of problems with workers receiving their lawfully owed wages. The lawsuit alleges that these problems have included workers not being paid for hours worked, workers not being compensated at the proper overtime rates pursuant to state and federal law, and workers having unauthorized amounts deducted from their paychecks. The lawsuit alleges that although Kroger is aware of these issues, it has failed to take prompt action to rectify these problems, instead forcing employees to scramble when their proper wages do not arrive.
