Wal-Mart Settles A Wage & Hour Lawsuit

Over $54 million to settle a lawsuit to workers in just the state of Minnesota.

What did Wal-Mart do this time?

Allegedly, the cut their workers’ rest breaks and didn’t prevent workers from working ‘off-the-clock’ in a 10-year period ending last month.

Employees read articles like this and see an opportunity to win the lottery. It’s especially prevalent in bad economic times. (In good economic times, it tends to be only disgruntled employees who look to cause trouble).

If Wal-Mart, with a huge staff of human resource professionals, can have this happen – it most certainly can happen to you.

Review your Wage & Hour practices as part of a comprehensive employment audit of your operations.
