It’s Wal-Mart’s responsibility to ensure that all of its employees, even if they aren’t employed directly by them, are receiving fair treatment under labor laws. Wal-Mart is an alleged “joint employer,” meaning it would also liable for any labor violations, says Eric Grover, a Bay Area employment lawyer. While Wal-Mart may not have been directly aware of the violations, if it’s proven to be a joint employer, they’re responsible for ensuring that its temporary staffing agencies follow the law.
