Wal-Mart hit with almost $500,000 in fines after losing overtime suit

shortformblog:

  • $4.8 million in unpaid overtime to be paid by Wal-Mart source

» The ruling follows a probe by the U.S. Department of Labor, during which investigators determined that Wal-Mart unfairly exempted approximately 3,700 employees from receiving overtime. All of the employees come from two departments, with 1,700 set to receive an average of $290 a piece, and the remaining 2,000 or so receiving approximately $2,300 a piece.
