Employment Discrimination at Walmart*

Submitted by pec on

If you experienced employee discrimination at Walmart, then you can file a discrimination claim. This is because Walmart, like any employer, is not allowed to discriminate against any employee or job applicant based on certain features they may possess, such as color, ethnic identity, age, pregnancy status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or age. If you can prove discrimination you should first make a complaint to your employer. If this does nothing file a charge with the EEOC which if successful you may be eligible for compensation.

What Is Employee Discrimination?

The laws enforced by the EEOC makes it unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees and job applicants on the bases of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, pregnancy status or age. There is also a retaliation law that prohibits employers from wrongfully terminating employees because they have participated in an investigation from an EEOC complaint, or who have shown they have opposed an employment practice by their employer such as sexual harassment which is illegal.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as amended, protects employees and job applicants from employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin. Title VII protection covers the full spectrum of employment decisions, including recruitment, promotions and terminations.

What Should I Do If I Experience Discrimination Working At Walmart?

If you are a victim of discrimination while working at Walmart, according to Walmart’s website, you should notify your manager.

If you are unable to properly resolve your claim of discrimination with your employer, you can file a claim with the EEOC. If the agent from the EEOC is unable to resolve your complaint with your employer but believes your claim is a just one it should give you permission to file a lawsuit in court.

How to File a Discrimination Claim With the EEOC

If you have proof you have been discriminated against at work at Walmart due to your race, color, religion, sex including pregnancy status, gender identity, and sexual orientation, national origin, age of 40 or older, disability or genetic information, you can file a Charge of Discrimination. This is a signed statement stating that an employer, union or labor organization took part in employment discrimination against you and it is asking that the EEOC takes action. With a case of workplace discrimination, direct evidence could include statements made by your managers, emails sent, recordings, and other types of communication which state the intention to discriminate. Any type of direct evidence could come from employers, managers, supervisors, and other individuals.
