Class-Action Lawsuits Continue at Wal-Mart

On the heels of a $40 million settlement with its Massachusetts employees regarding wage-and-hour violations, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. now finds itself hit with another class-action lawsuit.

It was only a year ago that Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world, agreed to pay $640 million to settle 63 wage-and-hour lawsuits, which was quickly followed earlier this year by a $54 million settlement in Minnesota and then a $172 million settlement in California.
