Background:

A Better Balance, with Co-Counsel Mehri & Skalet, PLLC and the National Women’s Law Center, represent a class of Walmart workers who claim that Walmart’s pregnancy accommodation policies violated the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. The case challenges 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 is Borders v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., No.17-cv-00506 (S.D. Ill.) and is pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.

The Court recently preliminarily approved a proposed $14 million class action settlement on behalf of certain Walmart workers who were pregnant from March 19, 2013 through March 5, 2014.
