Walmart Pregnancy Discrimination

Walmart Pregnancy Discrimination

Mehri & Skalet, PLLC, along with the National Women’s Law Center, A Better Balance, and the law firm of Sedey Harper Westhoff as local counsel, represented a class of Walmart workers who claimed that Walmart’s pregnancy accommodation policies violated the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. The case challenged Walmart’s policies from March 19, 2013 through March 5, 2014 that treated pregnant workers less favorably than other similarly situated employees, such as workers who were injured on the job and workers with disabilities.  This case was Borders v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., No.17-cv-00506 (S.D. Ill.).

In 2020, the Court finally approved a $14 million class settlement on behalf of certain Walmart workers who were pregnant from March 19, 2013 through March 5, 2014.
