TORONTO, March 5, 2024 /CNW/ – Siskinds LLP and Spiteri & Ursulak LLP announced today the filing of a proposed national class action against Shoppers Drug Mart Inc. and Shoppers Drug Mart (London) Limited (“Shoppers“).

The proposed class action alleges that Shoppers misclassified its former Associates as independent contractors and terminated their employment without providing them with reasonable notice or pay in lieu thereof. It is brought on behalf of all former Shoppers Drug Mart Associates in Canada, excluding Québec, who entered into an Associate Agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart Inc. or Shoppers Drug Mart (London) Limited and whose relationship was terminated by Shoppers from 2006 to the date of certification of the class action (the “Class Members“).
