From Fox Business:
Multiple reports are swirling that a former Walmart executive has filed a suit in federal court in California, alleging that the retail giant engaged in unlawful conduct with respect to its e-commerce business in order to keep up with rival Amazon.
Tri Huynh, a former director of business development at Walmart, has filed the suit after he was terminated “under false pretenses” after he repeatedly raised concerns about Walmart’s push to show meteoric growth in its e-commerce business, Bloomberg first reported.
Huynh cited that the “overly aggressive push” was so severe that the retailer even made “illegitimate” claims by mislabeling products so that some third-party vendors received lower commissions, failed to process customer returns and allowed offensive items onto the site.
. . . .
Huynh said his dismissal by the company in January was a direct retaliation for warning senior executives about fudging the data.
