Failure to Pay All Accrued Vacation Time at Separation
When a company sells a division of itself, can it simply sign away accrued employee benefits that they will not have with the new owner? The complaint for this class action alleges that when FMC Corporation sold its Health and Nutrition Division to DowDuPont, it allowed employees’ accrued vacation days to simply be wiped out without compensation.
Walmart is an extremely large company. As such, it has a lot of clout in making up its own company rules and requiring that employees adhere to them. However, this class action brings suit against Walmart, Inc. and Wal-Mart Associates, Inc. for violations of California’s state labor laws in denying employees accrued vacation time pay when they leave the company.
