Walmart Settles Pregnancy Discrimination Lawsuit

Share

The Washington (DC) Post reports US District Judge Staci M. Yandle of the Southern District of Illinois “approved a $14 million settlement in a landmark class-action lawsuit that accused Walmart of discriminating against its pregnant employees by denying them necessary workplace accommodations.” The settlement “will be divided up among 4,000 women who were denied pregnancy accommodations while working at Walmart between March 2013 and March 2014.” National Women’s Law Center lawyer Emily Martin said, “This sends a clear message to employers across the country about why pregnancy accommodations have to be a focus, and why pregnant workers’ health and safety is a key issue for businesses.” Walmart “admitted no wrongdoing as part of the settlement.”
