A federal court just ruled that Wal-Mart must face a class-action lawsuit affecting more than 2 million current and former female Wal-Mart employees who say Wal-Mart discriminated against them both in pay and promotions.
As you may recall, in 2004, a federal judge said Wal-Mart must stand trial in the largest gender discrimination lawsuit in U.S. history. But, Wal-Mart appealed the ruling.
Well, today, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Wal-Mart's appeal and said that Wal-Mart must stand trial.
This is great news and big victory for more than 2 million female Wal-Mart employees who were paid less and promoted less than their equivalent male counterparts.
As the court stated in its ruling, "Plaintiff's expert opinions, factual evidence, statistical evidence and anecdotal evidence present significant proof of a corporate policy of discrimination and support plaintiff's contention that female employees nationwide were subjected to a common pattern and practice of discrimination."
