In the News…
  • In 2003 managed to get action lawsuit against Wal-Mart based on so few women being among its managers given that a majority of its workforce is female and also for equal pay. Ended up settling case because didn’t want to lose a case for discrimination because would hurt Wal-Mart’s bottom line. But as the judge rightly ruled, companies that do business on as large a scale as Wal-Mart have to be prepared to answer for their actions on an equally large scale. Case settled in June 2004 and began in September of 2003.

In the News…
  • In June 2005 Oklahoma grocer Super H filed lawsuit against Wal-Mart Stores for using a scanner to collect barcode data from the products on the Super H’s Shelves. Wal-Mart allegedly sent workers into Super H to check prices close to the time a Supercenter was opening in August. Super H wants the scanner back, not because of the price information but to make sure that there is not inventory and wholesale prices in the scanner. The real question in this case was not the price scanning but can the scanner capture other information from the scanning tag then just the price. The suit was dismissed per news reports.

  • In April 2006 a suit was filed against a Wal-Mart in Maryland to ensure that larger employers pay up to a percentage toward health care for employees. ERISA is there to establish a uniform national framework for sponsoring, administering, protecting, and regulating employee benefit plans, including pension plans, and health and welfare plans. ERISA has a broad clause that pre-empts states and municipalities from enacting laws that relate to employee benefits plans. In this case it is not sure if the Maryland law or bills in other states violates the ERISA previsions. In February Wal-Mart announced plans to upgrade its health care benefits. This was decided in the middle of the uproar in this Maryland case.
