A new lawsuit accused Walmart Stores Inc. and two staffing agencies of requiring temporary employees to show up early for work, stay late, and work through lunch at the world's largest retailer.

The proposed class action, filed Monday in a Chicago federal court, alleged that Walmart and the agencies violated minimum wage and overtime laws which could affect several hundred temporary workers in the Chicago area.

Walmart declined to comment immediately, saying it first needed to review the lawsuit.
