Officials file complaint against Walmart for labor law violations

Created: 01/16/2014 6:27 AM WHEC.com

Federal officials say Walmart has broken the rules and violated the rights of legally protesting and striking workers.

The National Labor Relations Board filed a complaint in court saying Walmart has illegally fired, disciplined or threatened more than 60 workers across the U.S. The Board says it has been unable to reach a settlement with the company.

That complaint will go before an administrative judge and if Walmart is found liable, it has to award those workers back-pay and re-hire them.
