Attorneys are investigating a potential claim against Ralphs Grocery Company and The Kroeger Company relating to a 2003 employee lock out during which Ralphs allegedly hired hundreds of workers under fake names and violated laws involving employee benefits and record-keeping for the Social Security Administration and Internal Revenue Service.
These allegedly illegal practices allowed the lock out to continue, which deprived as many as 19,000 Ralphs union workers of their salary during the period of the lockout. If you are an employee who was locked out during this labor dispute, you may have a claim for back wages.
