Report: Walmart to pay Calif. cashiers $65M over lack of seating

Walmart Inc. said it will pay $65 million in settlements to almost 100,000 current and former cashiers in California because they were refused seating while working, Reuters reported Oct. 11.

The workers accused the Arkansas-based supermarket chain of violating California state law by not providing them with seats, the report said.

The settlement, if approved, could be the largest ever under California's Private Attorney General Act.

In a San Francisco federal court filing, Walmart denied any wrongdoing and said placing stools at cash registers could entail a safety risk. The company said cashiers need to move around, thus their work did not reasonably permit seating.

Walmart added that store managers may provide stools on a case-by-case basis if a cashier has a disability or medical condition.

The company was not immediately available for comment when contacted by S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Aside from the payout, Walmart said it will begin providing seats to its cashiers in California.
