Sam Walton, Boy Genius
Wal-Mart claims that the results of the audit are 'meaningless' since employees might just have forgotten to clock out for breaks. But, "several lawyers who sued Wal-Mart also noted that over the years Wal-Mart had ordered its employees to make sure to clock out when they took lunch and breaks."
What bold action has Wal-Mart taken to correct this problem? Well, a few months after the audit, "Wal-Mart stopped requiring employees to clock out and in for 15-minute breaks." They did this, they say, "for their employees' convenience."
