Wal-Mart Settles Unpaid Overtime Lawsuit for $86 Million

Wal-Mart agreed to pay $86 million to settle an wage and hour class-action lawsuit asserting it failed to pay vacation, overtime, and other wages to 232,000 former workers in California. The settlement is separate from Wal-Mart’s 2008 agreement to pay as much as $640 million to settle 63 federal and state class-action lawsuits for failing to comply with wage and hour laws. Last year, Wal-Mart paid $40 million to settle a class-action lawsuit over lost wages in Massachusetts.
