Wal-Mart Stores, the world's largest retailer, said Tuesday it will pay between $352 million and $640 million to settle 63 wage-and-hour abuse lawsuits against the company. The discount retailer, which has more than 1.4 million employees, said the total amount to be paid depends on the number of claims submitted by those who are eligible. Each of the settlements must be approved by a trial court.
