Walmart Pregnancy Discrimination

M&S represents current and former Walmart workers who have experienced pregnancy discrimination and who claim that Walmart’s pregnancy accommodation policies violate civil rights laws.  Two charges of discrimination have been filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  In March 2014, after the first charge was filed, Walmart announced changes to its written pregnancy accommodation policy – but the changes didn’t go far enough.  Unfortunately, pregnant women at Walmart continue to experience discrimination and to be pushed off the job.  A second charge was filed with the EEOC in December 2014.

The National Women’s Law Center and A Better Balance are co-counsel with M&S in this matter.
