Good news for Walmart workers in Pennsylvania. Robbie Neiswanger, writing in High court rejects Wal-Mart appeal for Arkansas Online, reports:
The U.S. Supreme Court denied a request from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to review a class-action lawsuit ruling that requires the retailer to pay Pennsylvania employees nearly $188 million. Wal-Mart petitioned the Supreme Court on March 2015 after court rulings in Pennsylvania awarded and then upheld the payout to a class of about 187,000 current and former employees. The employees claimed they were not paid what they were owed during meal and rest breaks between 1998 and 2006. The jury's verdict in favor of the workers in Braun/Hummel v. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. was rendered in 2007. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld the verdict in December 2014.
Now maybe some 187,000 workers will begin to get their share of he $188 million owed to them. Previously in The Writing On The Wal... Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.
