Walmart agrees to pay more than 100,000 Minnesota employees a combined $54.25 million to settle a lawsuit alleging improper work practices.

The current-at-the-time and former employees of Walmart and Sam's Club complained of not receiving their full state-mandated breaks and being required to work while off-the-clock.

The state would receive $14 million of the 54-plus million dollar settlement, in what was believed to be the largest civil penalty in the history of the state.
