Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has asked the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to toss out a ruling that would force the retailer to let shareholders vote on a proposal from a Manhattan Episcopal church concerned about firearm sales.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s latest filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission says the retailer has spent $439 million in the past two years to investigate allegations that it paid foreign bribes.
After three years, the Securities & Exchange Commission is finally following through on one of the Dodd-Frank law’s more controversial requirements: It has proposed that public companies disclose how the pay of their CEOs compares to that of their workers.
The fact that Wal-Mart — the largest private employer with 1.3 million workers in the U.S. — has decided to offer the benefits is a high-profile win for gay-rights advocates and could cause other companies that haven’t offered the benefits to do so.
