Two employees of Fred Meyer have filed a $5 million wage class action lawsuit against the grocery chain for violating Oregon’s wage laws. The lawsuit claims that due to Fred Meyer’s new payroll system installed in September 2022, technical issues caused some employees to be partially paid or not paid at all for their time worked. The lawsuit alleges that some people have missed multiple weeks of pay.
One of the plaintiffs worked for a Portland store and the other for a store in Medford.
