Wal-Mart ethics code overturned

Good citizen Wal-Mart recently had their ethics code overturned by a German labor court. The code banned relationships between Wal-Mart employees and created a hotline for co-workers to turn in offenders. Under German (and European Union) law, employee councils must sign off on a wide range of workplace conditions, from hiring and firing to the position of desks in an office.

Wal-Mart claims that the guidlines are intended to maintain a safe workplace.
