EEOC efforts increasingly geared toward class actions

Big things are happening at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). This agency, which is tasked with helping to create, refine and enforce the nation's federal workplace anti-discrimination laws and regulations, is currently employing what the Associated Press calls "a systemic strategy to bring more large-scale bias cases against prominent companies."

Walmart gender discrimination issues continue

We have written previously about the long-running gender discrimination suits and scandal facing retail giant Walmart and how the outcome of such legal actions could affect Walmart employees here in South Florida.

Judges block class-action status in Costco gender bias lawsuit

The US Supreme Court's ruling earlier this summer in the Wal-Mart gender discrimination case was predicted by some to be a death knell for all similar class-action suits in the future. Experts predicted that the ruling would make it much more difficult to pursue class-action status in future employment lawsuits.

Other class-actions unhurt by Supreme Court's Wal-Mart ruling

Last month, we wrote about the important and highly-controversial ruling by the US Supreme Court. By a narrow majority, the Court ruled that a class-action gender discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart Inc. could not proceed. Because it would have been the largest class-action lawsuit in US history, many feared that the Court's decision would hinder the success of future employment lawsuits.

Wal-Mart gender bias lawsuit rejected by Supreme Court: Part II

Earlier this week, we wrote that the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that a class-action lawsuit against Wal-Mart cannot proceed. The lawsuit alleged systematic gender discrimination and was filed on behalf of over 1.5 million female employees.
