Dollar General Shareholder Derivative Action

Lowey Dannenberg is currently prosecuting a shareholder derivative case against Dollar General’s Board of Directors and certain officers for its persistent failure to implement and maintain an effective system of internal controls in violation of their fiduciary duties surrounding workplace safety.


Over the past eight years, Dollar General’s Board of Directors and certain officers have permitted and condoned hazardous working conditions for its employees and have shown a willful disregard for federal safety standards. Since 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) has issued more than $15 million in fines against Dollar General and its subsidiary, Dolgencorp LLLC for numerous willful, repeat, and serious violations relating to unsafe working conditions. In addition to being one of OSHA’s top violators since 2016, Dollar General also fails to protect workers from violent crime, which has resulted in several deaths. This shareholder derivative action is currently pending in the Middle District of Tennessee and demands that Dollar General take all necessary actions to reform and improve its corporate governance.
