In 2006, the organization was accused of failing to pay a variety of wages including overtime and vacation time to former workers as required under California law.

Over the past several years, Wal-Mart has been involved in several settlements concerning wages:

  • 2008 settlement for as much as $640 million to settle 63 federal and state class-action lawsuits alleging unpaid wages
  • 2009 settlement for $40 million to settle a class-action lawsuit in Massachusetts

Wal-Mart is also in the middle of another class action suit, one alleging sexual discrimination of female workers. Dukes v. Walmart has the potential to be one of the largest workplace discrimination class action suits in U.S. history.
