giant Wal-Mart has been accused of forcing its American staff to work extra
hours for no pay.
which employs over a million people and owns the Asda supermarket business in
the UK, is facing multiple lawsuits in 28 states.
Reports in The
Times allege the retailer forced staff to do unpaid work after they had
finished their agreed shifts.
claims that in some cases staff were locked inside stores until work was
completed and had hours deleted from timesheets to keep them under 40 hours per
any ruling will not affect Asda as it is run as a separate company and has
different pay schemes and policies.
