Class Definition—You May Be Part of the Class
You are a member of the Class affected by the Settlement if you fit within one of these two definitions:
1) All women employed by Walmart at stores in the 39 National Policy States  who were denied requested accommodations because of pregnancy by the
Accommodation Service Center (ASC) from March 19, 2013 through March 5, 2014.
 "National Policy States" means Alabama; Alaska; Arizona; Arkansas; Colorado; Delaware; Florida; Georgia; Idaho; Indiana; Iowa; Kansas; Maine; Maryland;
Massachusetts; Michigan; Minnesota; Mississippi; Missouri; Nebraska; Nevada; New Hampshire; New Jersey; New York; New Mexico; North Carolina; North Dakota;

2) All women employed by Walmart at stores nationwide who were denied requested accommodations because of pregnancy by store level management and/or store-level human resource personnel from
March 19, 2013 through March 5, 2014.
If you received a Notice in a mailing addressed to you, then you may have been an employee who was pregnant sometime between March 19, 2013 and March 5, 2014. If you requested a workplace
accommodation because of pregnancy and Walmart denied your request during this time period, then you have legal rights and options that you may exercise before the Court finally approves the Settlement.
The Settlement Fund
At this time, it is not possible to make any determination as to how much any individual Settlement Class member may receive from the Settlement.
Walmart will pay $14 million dollars ($14,000,000) into a Settlement Fund. Most of the Settlement Fund will pay Class Members. A portion of the Settlement Fund, not to exceed $200,000, will be used to pay
the costs of administering the Settlement. A portion of the Settlement Fund will also be used to reimburse Class Counsel for the costs and expenses of the litigation as well as pay attorneys’ fees. This amount
will not exceed one-third of the Settlement Fund plus costs. Class Counsel will submit a request for payment of their fees and costs to the Court by March 27, 2020. The remainder of the Settlement Fund will
be distributed to the Named Plaintiffs and Class Members to compensate them for their claims. In order to be eligible to receive a share from the Settlement Fund, Class Members must submit a Claim Form,
a copy of which accompanies this Notice, as described below.
The Settlement Hearing
The Court will decide whether to finally approve this Settlement after a Settlement Hearing to be held at the U.S. District Court in Benton, Illinois on April 29, 2020 at 1:30PM
, before the Honorable
Staci M. Yandle. The Court will determine whether the proposed Settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate and whether it should be approved. The Court will also consider whether the motion of the Plaintiffs’
attorneys for an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses should be approved, and whether an order and judgment should be entered bringing the litigation to a conclusion.
