Employees of some of the largest chain stores are not compensated for working overtime and also suffer gender discrimination in the workplace, according to the labor office. The most-prominent example is Netherlands-based Ahold, which runs the Hypernova and Albert retail chains...Ahold denied any wrongdoing...The Ahold case is not the only recent one...More than 10,500 labor office inspections were carried out nationwide in 2002. Violations were found in nearly 75 percent of the cases.
