oct 16, 2001 - Mauldin v. Wal-Mart Stores
- Gender Discrimination
The lawsuit was filed by Lisa Smith Mauldin, a 23-year-old customer service manager at a Wal-Mart store in Hiram, Georgia. Mauldin, a mother of two, was working for 32 hours per week at a rate of $12.14 per hour and spending $30 a month on birth-control pills. She had signed up for the company's health care plan in February 2000 only to learn that it did not cover her prescription contraceptives. Liza Featherstone of The Nation described this financial weight as "a significant burden for Mauldin and certainly a prohibitive one for many fellow employees, who earn significantly lower wages."
