Unpaid Overtime Wal-Mart Class Action Lawsuit

Comments Off

Recently, a Pennsylvania judge approved a class-action lawsuit against Wal-Mart, Inc. brought by employees who allege that Wal-Mart, Inc. pressured them into working off the clock.

The Unpaid Overtime Class-Action lawsuit alleges that employees worked regularly through breaks and after hours without overtime pay.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

requires employers to pay covered employees who are not otherwise exempt at least the federal minimum wage and overtime pay of one-and-one-half-times the regular rate of pay.

Last month, a California jury awarded Wal-Mart employees $172 million for illegally denied lunch breaks. In Colorado, a similar case was settled for $50 million.
