Wal-Mart loses suit on work breaks
Source: Associated Press, Los Angeles Times
Wal-Mart forced employees to work through rest breaks and off the clock, violating Pennsylvania labor laws, a state jury found Thursday. The jury, however, ruled in Wal-Mart's favor on the claim that it denied workers meal breaks. The jury now must decide damages in the class-action suit, which covers as many as 187,000 current and former hourly Wal-Mart workers. Plaintiffs' lawyers say the damages could reach $162 million. All this over a break?
