RG2 Claims Administration, LLC Announces Class Action Settlement on Behalf of Walmart employees ...

June 29, 2021 GMT

PHILADELPHIA, June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you were a Walmart employee who took Short-Term Military Leave (30 days or less) in any calendar year between October 10, 2004 and December 31, 2020, you could get money from this class action settlement.

You may be a class member if you were a Walmart employee who took Short-Term Military Leave (30 days or less) in any calendar year between October 10, 2004 and December 31, 2020, you could get money from this class action settlement. A Walmart employee, Nickolas Tsui (the “Plaintiff”) has sued Walmart in a class action on behalf of himself and other similarly situated employees alleging that Walmart violated the Uniformed Services Employment & Reemployment Rights Act (“USERRA”) by failing to provide its employees fully paid leave when they took short-term military leave since October 2004.  Walmart denies the claims and the Court has not decided that Walmart did anything wrong. The Parties have agreed to settle the claims alleged in the Lawsuit.  The Notice describes the proposed class action Settlement, which, if approved by the Court, would mean that you may be eligible to receive compensation for Short-Term Military Leave that you took when you worked at Walmart between October 10, 2004 and December 31, 2020.
