Wage theft in the form of requiring employees to work through breaks and after they have clocked out – working off the clock – has proved costly to Walmart as the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has upheld a $187 million verdict in this wage theft case, Braun v. Walmart. The employees proved that Walmart had a commonly followed policy of requiring employees to work through breaks and after they had clocked out; in other words, an official corporate policy requiring employees to work off the clock and not paying them for that work. Wage theft pure and simple.
Attorney Victoria Ni of Public Justice discusses the case on the Public Justice blog: A Victory Against Wage Theft and for Class Actions in Braun v Walmart.
