Walmart and Sam’s Club are the defendants in a proposed class and collective action out of Pennsylvania filed over alleged state and federal wage and hour violations. The plaintiff, who the suit says worked as an hourly paid associated at the Willow Grove Sam’s Club store from April 2015 through November 2017, alleges that the defendants require hourly employees to punch in and out via timeclock for each shift. According to the lawsuit, however, the defendants’ timeclocks accept employee punches made less than 15 minutes before or after their scheduled shift start and end times yet reject punches made more than 15 minutes before or after a shift’s schedule start and end times. As a result, the complaint claims, employees have ended up performing pre- and post-shift off-the-clock work without being paid commensurate wages, including time-and-a-half overtime pay.
