Wal-Mart Class Action
Wal-Mart Asks Supreme Court to Review Gender Bias Class Action
Wal-Mart stores urged the U.S. Supreme Court to review a federal appeals court ruling that would be the largest class action lawsuit in history. Wal-Mart argues that 'the class action is larger than the active-duty personnel in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard combined-making it the largest employment class action in history by several orders of magnitude." If Wal-Mart is found guilty of the class action, it would encompass more than 1 million former and current femali Wal-Mart employees representing payouts of billions of dollars.
Wal-Mart itself issued a press release emphasizing that the merits of the case have not yet been decided, and defending the company's workplace record. "It is important to remember that the Ninth Circuit's opinion dealt only with class certification, not with the merits of the lawsuit," according to the statement. "Walmart is an excellent place for women to work and has been recognized as a leader in fostering the advancement and success of women in the workplace."
