Walmart ordered to pay over employee dispute

Dec 17 2014 09:00

Washington - Walmart said the Pennsylvania Supreme Court had ordered it to pay about $188m to settle a class-action lawsuit filed by employees who claimed their meal and rest breaks were regularly cut.

Walmart said the ruling, which it may appeal, would reduce its fourth-quarter earnings from continuing operations by about 6 cents per share.

The suit, filed in March 2002, represented about 187 000 Walmart employees who worked in Pennsylvania between 1998 and 2006.
