Wal-Mart paying $4.8M for overtime violations
Wal-Mart paying $4.8 million in back wages, damages for overtime violations
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Labor Department says Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is paying $4.8 million in back wages and damages to more than 4,500 employees nationwide for unpaid overtime.

The Bentonville, Ark.-based company is also paying nearly $464,000 in civil penalties for violating federal overtime laws.

The violations cover current and former managers at Wal-Mart vision centers and certain security personnel at Wal-Mart Discount Stores, Wal-Mart Supercenters, Neighborhood Markets and Sam's Club warehouses.

The Labor Department says the company improperly considered the workers to be exempt from overtime pay.

Labor officials say Wal-Mart began correcting the way it classifies the affected employees in 2007.
