Hourly employees of Wal-Mart who claim they were forced to work off the clock and to miss rest and meal breaks may pursue a class action suit in New Jersey, the state's Supreme Court said Thursday. The justices found that the workers had raised common questions of law or fact, that a class action was the superior method of adjudication and that case-management problems predicted by trial and appeals courts could be overcome. The putative class consists of about 72,000 current and former hourly employees.
