Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will eliminate one-day sick leave wait periods for full-time employees starting next year. Currently, workers have to use a personal day for their first day of sick leave if they want to be paid. The change is part of a host of new policies at the company meant to help employees, and thereby boost customer satisfaction. The new policies are expected to cost the company more than $1 billion this year. The company also recently eliminated health insurance benefits for 30,000 part-time workers.
