Wal-Mart Extends Time To File Sexual Discrimination Claims

Many women still intend to individually sue Wal-Mart for sexual discrimination after the decade-long class action lawsuit was rejected by the Supreme Court in June. On July 22, Wal-Mart agreed to give such women an extra 90 days to file their cases.

When the sexual discrimination lawsuit began in June 2001, the plaintiffs of the Dukes v. Wal-Mart case, the largest civil rights class action suit in the U.S., accused Wal-Mart of sexual discrimination against women in promotions, pay and job assignments in violation of Title VII of the Civil Right Act. Thus began a long string of media attention and legal complications. On June 20, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously, in Wal-Mart’s favor, that the plaintiffs did not have enough in common to constitute a class.

Wal-Mart intends to give potential plaintiffs individually suing for sexual discrimination the option to “start the clock fresh” and to “get their day in court.” Although previous discrimination claims were rejected when Wal-Mart challenged the legality of the class action suit, many female workers still want to sue for sexual discrimination and many of their lawyers are seeking to extend the deadline to an extra 120 days. U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer announced that he will come to a ruling within the next few days as to whether the potential plaintiffs can file sexual discrimination claims by October 20 or January 16.

If you have been a victim of sexual discrimination by Wal-Mart, there is still time to file your claim. Attorney Sidney L. Gold and his associates have handled countless cases of sexual discrimination by successfully pursuing litigation and obtaining verdicts for such cases.
