Walgreens Pharmacists Rest Breaks Class Action
This class action lawsuit alleges that Walgreens knowingly fails to provide proper, off-duty rest breaks for its pharmacists, in deliberate violation of California law. Plaintiffs claim that Walgreens’ companywide policy requires pharmacists to remain on duty and responsible for pharmacy operations, including by staying on Walgreens’ premises and logged into the computer system—and therefore responsible for all prescriptions filled at the pharmacy during that time—during “rest breaks” that do not meet the standard of bona fide rest breaks to which they are legally entitled.
