Wal-Mart has agreed to pay $4.8 million in overtime compensation as a result of a federal Department of Labor investigation.  The company will also pay over $400,000 in fines.  The employees worked in the jobs of Asset Protection Coordinator and Vision Center Manager and the company misclassified them as exempt from overtime compensation requirements.

Misclassifying employees as exempt from overtime is a common violation of federal and Kentucky state overtime laws; if you have been misclassified or not been paid the overtime that you have earned, contact Lexington, Kentucky overtime lawyer at 859-254-7076.
