What financial impact do you think the lawsuit could potentially have on Wal-Mart? The financial impact this class action suit could potentially have on Wal-Mart is very significant. Wal-Mart faces the possibility of having to pay back millions of women that have worked for the company since 1998. The company is looking at possibly having to provide back pay to these women and even pay for punitive damages. This substantial amount of money could have a huge negative impact on Wal-Mart and cause the company to suffer for many years to come. What are the major moral complaints of the females suing Wal-Mart? Do you believe these moral complaints are justified? Why? The major moral complaints of the women are that women who work for Wal-Mart face systemic sexism, in that they are paid less than men in comparable positions and receive fewer promotions than the men do.
