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.

In May 2017, a federal complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois on behalf of pregnant workers who requested workplace accommodations in 2013-2014. The case is focused on Walmart’s nationwide discriminatory policy in 2013-2014 that treated pregnant workers differently than other similarly situated employees. It also addresses pregnancy discrimination against workers in Illinois in 2013-2014.

M&S also represents pregnant workers who experienced discrimination at Walmart under more recent versions of Walmart’s accommodation policy. Three women have filed charges of discrimination with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

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