On August 11, 2022, Lieff Cabraser and co-counsel Bolt Keenley Kim filed a class action lawsuit against Save Mart Supermarkets in the Northern District of California on behalf of a class of workers who claim the grocery chain denied them promised retiree medical benefits. As the largest regional grocer in California, Save Mart operates over two-hundred Save Mart, Lucky, and FoodMaxx stores, employs tens of thousands of people and generates billions of dollars in annual revenue.
The lawsuit alleges Save Mart misrepresented to its employees that if they worked long enough to become eligible for retirement, they would receive retiree medical benefits for the rest of their lives. However, in 2022, the company decided to terminate the medical benefit, depriving hundreds or thousands of retirees of their medical benefits.
This action by Save Mart was exceptionally brutal, as most class members had worked at its stores for at least thirty years in exchange for the understanding that they’d be taken care of in retirement. In eliminating the medical benefit, Save Mart broke faith with its most dedicated workers.
