Wal-Mart Faces Gender Discrimination Class Action Lawsuit
February 28 2013 - by Lucy Campbell
Madison, WI: A regional gender discrimination
class action lawsuit has been filed against Wal-Mart Stores Inc, alleging the king of big box retailers discriminates against its female employees. This gender discrimination lawsuit is the fifth such lawsuit filed against Wal-Mart since the US Supreme Court threw out a massive nationwide discrimination class action case in 2011, which would have seen a class consisting of millions of plaintiffs.
While the national class action was dismissed by the Supreme Court, it did state that the plaintiffs could file smaller, regionally based gender discrimination class actions against Wal-Mart.
Filed in Wisconsin by one current and four former employees, the class action, entitled Ladik et al. v. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Case No. 13-cv-00123, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, alleges that female employees are discriminated against when it comes to receiving compensation and promotions.
The Wisconsin gender discrimination class action lawsuit is seeking to represent female workers employed by Wal-Mart since December 1998.
The plaintiffs are represented by Nichols Kaster PLLP, Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll, and the Impact Fund.

I just got turned down for 6th time in an attempt to get a department manager position. Once again the position was given to a woman in her twenties with less than a year of experience.
