Law360 (March 25, 2019, 8:37 PM EDT) -- Walmart should be sanctioned for falsely asserting to a Wisconsin judge that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission didn't try to resolve a pregnancy discrimination charge before filing suit as it was legally required to do, the agency said Monday.
In a motion for sanctions under Rule 11 of the federal rules of civil procedure, the EEOC said that Wal-Mart Stores East LP, in responding to the commission's complaint that it discriminated against a class of women at a Wisconsin distribution center, falsely denied the agency's assertion that it contacted the company about conciliating the allegations ahead of litigation.
