Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has agreed to pay up to $35 million to settle a class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of 88,000 workers in Washington State who were forced to skip meal and rest breaks or work off the clock. A King County Superior Court judge gave final approval to the settlement. The class members must file their claims by August 19th. The settlement also requires Wal-Mart to continue steps it has taken to prevent wage and hour violations at its 50 stores and Sam’s Clubs in Washington.
