BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Walmart is an American retail corporation that runs chains or large discount department stores and warehouse stores. It is the world’s largest public corporation, the biggest private employer in the world with over two million employees, and the largest retailer in the world. Walmart was founded in 1962, and its world headquarters is located in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Walmart employees are often required to work double shifts and work additional time before and after their scheduled shift. With the exception of some upper management positions, the employer must pay overtime to workers who work more than forty hours per week. Employers often deny or unlawfully refuse to pay overtime by misclassifying the positions of the workers, requiring them to report to work early but not “punch the clock” until later, striking hours off time cards, or not paying them for work before the shift starts and after the employee punches out for the day. These are violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and can give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.
