Wal-Mart payout to workers OKd

November 03, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. won final approval of a settlement paying as much as $85 million to hourly workers who sued over allegations of unpaid wages.

U.S. District Judge Philip M. Pro in Las Vegas approved the settlement, under which Wal-Mart will pay $65 million to $85 million.

The workers said the Bentonville, Ark., company violated wage-and-hour laws by denying them rest breaks and manipulating time cards to "shave" their pay.
