Walmart Self-Checkout Customers Entitled to 10% Employee Discount, According to Lawsuit
The Californer/10227200

SAN FRANCISCO - Californer -- A proposed class action lawsuit filed by California resident Richard H. Davis alleges that customers who use the self-checkout service at Walmart stores in California are entitled to a 10% employee discount under state law. Davis, a consumer watchdog, argues that by using the self-checkout service, shoppers become de facto "employees" of Walmart and should therefore be entitled to the same discounts as actual employees.

"By using the self-checkout service, customers are effectively performing the same tasks as employees, such as scanning and bagging their own purchases," said Davis. "It only makes sense that they should be entitled to the same discounts."

The lawsuit, which is currently pending in a California court, seeks to provide a 10% employee discount to all customers who have used the self-checkout service at Walmart stores in California. If successful, the lawsuit could have major implications for retailers across the state.

Walmart has not yet commented on the lawsuit, but it is expected to vigorously defend itself against the allegations. In the meantime, the company continues to offer its self-checkout service to customers at all of its California stores.

This is a developing story and we will update with more information as it becomes available.
