$40 million to settle wage and hour class action
December 04, 2009 by Ross Runkel at LawMemo
Wal-Mart Stores agreed Wednesday to pay $40 million to as many as 87,500 current and former employees in Massachusetts.
The class action suit alleged that the employer denied workers rest and meal breaks, refused to pay overtime, and manipulated time cards to lower employees’ pay.
They say this is the biggest wage and hour class action settlement in Massachusetts history.
