BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
A female delivery driver for Walmart Inc. is suing her employer in a federal class-action lawsuit alleging the retailer provides work pants and laundry services for men but not for female truckers.
Plaintiff Diana Webb says that Walmart offered to provide her work uniform — mandated by the company — when she went to work at the company’s distribution center in Cullman, Alabama, in July 2020. The company gave her shirts that fit, she said, but only offered pants and shorts in men’s sizes and designs, according to a news report on AL.com.
Ms. Webb said she bought her own pants and was not reimbursed, according to the suit filed Tuesday in federal court in Alabama. Walmart did not respond to a reporter’s requests for comment.
“This is blatant sex discrimination by Walmart against its female drivers,” the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit asks that a federal judge bar Walmart from treating the female delivery drivers differently from the men, repay the women for their uniform costs and order the company to pay damages, court costs and attorneys fees.
